Adam O'Farrill Quartet - Emerging Artist Series

Adam O'Farrill is a force of nature, a brilliant trumpeter who took 3rd place in the Thelonious Monk Competition and is the recipient of two ASCAP awards. His approach combines the bluster of his age (he'll be 22 years old at the time of this concert) with the finesse of a master and the wisdom of being surrounded by music 24/7. O'Farrill was raised in a family where music was inescapable. His father is Grammy award winning pianist/composer/arranger Arturo O'Farrill, his mother is classical pianist Alison Deane, his older brother is an in-demand NYC drummer and his grandfather was the legendary Chico O'Farrill who composed and arranged for Benny Goodman, Machito, Stan Kenton and Dizzy Gillespie. Adam's talent and abilities combined with his strong character and his father's continuous message to stay true to his vision have served him well. He is a focused, creative musician who has surrounded himself with other brilliant, like-minded individuals and has thus created a new paradigm, a new music, and a unique composing style that is musically engaging, energetic, surprising and humorous. The piano-less quartet O'Farrill will present at the Jazz Center includes his brother Zack on drums along with saxophonist Chad Lefkowitz-Brown and bassist Walter Stinson. Their new album Stranger Days has received positive reviews from the New York Times, New York City Jazz Record and All Music Guide to Jazz.

Billy Childs Quartet

Billy Childs is one of the leading pianists, composers and arrangers of our time. Thus far in his career he has earned thirteen Grammy nominations and four Grammy awards. He is also the recipient of Chamber Music America's Composer's Grant, a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a music award from the American Academy of Arts as well as 17 classical music commissions. He has recorded and performed with numerous luminaries including J.J. Johnson, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Wynton Marsalis, Renee Fleming, Yo Yo Ma, Jack DeJohnette, Dave Holland, Ron Carter and many others too plentiful to mention. His most recent recording, Map to the Treasure, Reimagining Laura Nyro received two Grammy Awards and featured such artists as Sting and Diane Reeves. Jazz Critic Don Heckman writes: "Words fail in an effort to describe the complexities and the subtleties of Childs's musical imagination which is far-reaching...Childs' works do not simply place genres side by side. Instead they find a common, creative ground reminiscent of Rumi's 'community of spirit.'" He will be performing with his working quartet; most likely the group will include Steve Wilson (saxophone), Hans Glawischnig (bass) and Ari Hoenig (drums).

Eugene Uman's Convergence Project

"I always love listening to Eugene's compositions; they make so much musical sense and bring you on a journey with a very healing, uplifting feel." - Jerry Bergonzi

After spending several years in Colombia, South America, Eugene Uman found a niche blending the rhythms of Colombia such as cumbia, bambuco and pasillo with jazz harmonies. Uman continued to investigate the rhythms and forms of the music of his newly adopted homeland, internalizing a small handful of the immense and richly varied catalog of Colombian rhythms. Uman continues to visit Latin America; his relationship to Colombia, its people, highly developed art and music will never be shaken. Still, his focus (and the repertoire of the Convergence Project) has morphed into a personalized amalgam of jazz-influenced styles. It continues to reference Colombian rhythms but has evolved to give a greater voice to Uman's love of vocal jazz, bebop, rock, gospel and funk roots. He states: "The music that I compose is a reflection of my accumulated experiences. It is affected by what I am currently paying attention to but is also strongly influenced by the listening and performing experiences of my formative years in rock, jazz, classical contexts." Each member of the Convergence Project brings their own highly developed personal approaches to Uman's music, uplifting it with original lines, hard driving grooves, attention to dynamics, acute listening skills and a group commitment to giving the music shape and substance.
