ANTHONY STRONG

THURSDAY
June 16
Show: $25
Dinner & Show: $65
Show Time: 8pm


ANTHONY STRONG

NEW RECORDING IS 0N A CLEAR DAY

Special Opening Artist-Ahmad Jamal Presents Shahin


With his sharply tailored suit and easy charm, singer-pianist Anthony Strong seems to happily fill the role of ‘The English Gentleman’ often thrust upon him. His swaggering vocals and swinging piano style are matched by an energy that have entertained audiences at his live shows around the world.

Strong’s new album, On A Clear Day, is a statement of intent to continue doing what he does best. The repertoire is unashamedly ‘old school’ - from jazz standards and classics, through to early Stevie Wonder and Motown - a cross section of his personal record collection. There is nothing ‘old’ about the treatment of them though. The songs capture the fresh, positive and feel-good energy of his audience-winning tours.

PIECES OF A DREAM

Saturday
June 18
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Time: 8 & 10pm


PIECES OF A DREAM
NEW RECORDING - ALL IN

There are few musical collectives that hang in there for the long haul - groups that continue to explore and evolve album after album, year after year. Pieces of a Dream are one of those groups, dedicated to bringing their fans the very best Contemporary/Smooth jazz sounds.

Pieces of Dream hails from Philadelphia and was founded by keyboardist James Lloyd and drummer Curtis Harmon. Their big break came when the late saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. saw their large talent and when Washington started his own production company, Pieces of a Dream would be the first act he would promote.

The youthful exuberance of those two Philly kids from the mid-‘70s is still very much alive in Soul Intent, Pieces of a Dream’s latest effort on Heads Up. The 11-song set gets back to the basics of Pieces’ original songwriting and recording philosophy by reconnecting to the band’s original live-in-the-studio approach and maximizing the most fundamental and enduring components of the Pieces experience.

It’s that kind of innovation and eclecticism that keeps Pieces of a Dream fresh and authentic in a jazz world that’s ever-changing. “We will always be true to ourselves and our roots,” says Lloyd, “and at the same time try to stay in touch with the times.”

"Fifty years in the business of knocking ‘em dead musically and still looking and kickin’ it like 20-year-olds. That’s not just an anomaly. That’s Pieces of a Dream."

NICHOLAS PAYTON

SATURDAY
JUNE 25
Show $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Times: 8 & 10pm


NICHOLAS PAYTON - trumpet & keyboards with
Vincente Archer - bass and Joe Dyson - drums

Trumpeter Nicholas Payton is widely considered one of the greatest artists of our time. Hailed as a virtuoso before he was even out of high school, his unbridled talent has earned him praise and accolades, as well as insured his place in history.

“Payton’s clarion trumpet, as well as his genre-defying solos, stood at the center of the music making... Payton bent notes beyond recognition… No descriptive label or category could be affixed to Payton’s solos, which were as brashly original as they were technically imposing.” - Howard Reich - Chicago Tribune
