The 2018 season of All That Jazz

The first thing you notice is that voice: gorgeous, graceful, and somehow earthy and ethereal at once. It is an instrument perfectly matched to the songwriting talents of the artist who channels it — Halie Loren. Her music conveys the wonders of the invisible world: wounded defiance, stubborn love, hard-earned hopefulness. Fed by the hyperborean beauty of her childhood Alaska home, Loren’s gift for discovering the playfulness, pizzazz, and sensuality inherent in a lyric appeared early on. But it was her talent for turning those feelings into genre-defying original compositions — songs at once universal and deeply personal — that captured wider attention. Loren’s debut release of eleven original songs, Full Circle (2006), was hailed for exhibiting “a power and grace that are nearly unheard of in popular music.” Her newest release, Butterfly Blue, was released in Japan on January 21, 2015, and globally on June 9th. It debuted at #1 on Japan’s Billboard Jazz chart and placed in chart’s top 10 list for 8 weeks. The album ventures into some new recording territory for Loren, exploring her musical roots in not only jazz, but also in soul, blues, folk, and pop

Sure-footed swing, sweet-toned harmony and ever-insouciant charm are embodied in the new jazz vocal trio Duchess, featuring notable New York singers Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou. Blending the classic and the contemporary DUCHESS has quickly earned a reputation for beautiful singing and big fun at the group’s shows of “girl-on-girl harmony,” as the three so saucily put it. The New York-based threesome made its debut on record with the eponymousDuchess, released by Anzic Records in February 2015. The album channels the 1930s inspiration of the virtuosic Boswell Sisters into a wonderfully entertaining package
Tribute to Benny Goodman

A multi-instrument phenomenon, Dave Bennett is a clarinet virtuoso who plays electric guitar, piano, drums and vocalizes. He is the only artist anywhere saluting The Roots of Pop: covering music from the Swing Era to early Rockabilly and Country, to Elvis Presley, the Beatles and more. Entirely self-taught, Dave began at age 10 on clarinet listening to and quickly playing along with Benny Goodman records. At 12, he was invited by legendary jazz trumpeter, Doc Cheatham, to the bandstand of New York’s famous Sweet Basil jazz club. By 14 he was out frequently touring around the USA with Michigan’s New Reformation Dixieland Band. Dave is a blazing clarinet sensation playing the “swing style” of Benny Goodman. Leading his Tribute to Benny Goodman, Dave has been a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops (2013) and has played the program with 50 other US and Canadian orchestras

Tony DeSare performs with infectious joy, wry playfulness and robust musicality. Named a Rising Star Male Vocalist in Downbeat magazine, DeSare has lived up to this distinction by winning critical and popular acclaim for his concert performances throughout North America and abroad. From jazz clubs to Carnegie Hall to Las Vegas headlining with Don Rickles and major symphony orchestras, DeSare has brought his fresh take on old school class around the globe. His sound is romantic, swinging and sensual, but what sets DeSare apart is his ability to write original material that sounds fresh and contemporary, yet pays homage to the Great American Songbook.
