Freddie Bryant and the Kaleidoscope Quartet
Guitarist Freddie Bryant's Kaleidoscope Quartet to feature the sounds of jazz from around the world at the VJC in a tribute to VJC founder, Attila Zoller
The Vermont Jazz Center kicks off 2014 with a concert featuring guitarist Freddie Bryant's Kaleidoscope Quartet a band that features disparate grooves from around the world unified by Bryant's simple truth that he is indeed an authentic global citizen. This show will be a tribute to VJC founder, the great guitarist, Attila Zoller.
Bryant is touring with the same core group he used on his acclaimed 2011 recording Live Grooves...Epic Tales. Together they traveled on a state department tour and performed in Papua New Guinea, Singapore, India, Burma, Cuba, Mexico, Senegal, Malawi, Tanzania, Madagascar, Ethiopia and other exotic destinations. If this band sounds tight, maybe it's because they've thoroughly internalized the music, know each others moves and have learned to read each others minds. The resultant music is beautiful and evokes the distant lands they've visited. Bryant's specializes in writing compositions that testify to both the smallness of the world and the gigantic breadth of its culture; furthermore he is a remarkable guitarist whose staggering technique allows him to play virtually anything he hears.
"...the thing that impresses me most about [Freddie's] playing is his unique and very broad harmonic sense which coupled with a very musical mind gives his guitar playing and compositions a personalized sound..." -- Kenny Burrell
