Jazz Record Art Collective (JRAC) changes things up a bit with the Micah Rutschman Quintet performing a tribute to Jazz Vibraphone and Marimba player Bobby Hutcherson. The night will also feature an installation and live painting from visual artist Lisha Misha.

“Easily one of jazz's greatest vibraphonists, Bobby Hutcherson epitomized his instrument in relation to the era in which he came of age the way Lionel Hampton did with swing or Milt Jackson with bop… Hutcherson helped modernize his instrument by redefining what could be done with it -- sonically, technically, melodically, and emotionally. In the process, he became one of the defining (if underappreciated) voices in the so-called "new thing" portion of Blue Note's glorious '60s roster..” ~ Steve Huey

Jazz Record Art Collective Presents Alyssa Allgood Quintet performing Carmen McRae’s 1988 release CARMEN SINGS MONK.

“Being both an avid fan of both Carmen and Monk this album is a delight. Carmen makes it work because she had a deep understanding and appreciation of Monk's work… Her phrasing is perfect. However, her backing ensemble is also an ingredient in pulling this album off. Let's start with Monk's best known tenor saxophonist, Charlie Rouse, who is backing her. He sets the tone and provides a link back to the music. You can almost imagine Monk in Europe of Japan inviting Carmen to the stage to sit in. The other musicians backing Carmen are both Larry Willis and Eric Gunnison on piano, Clifford Jordon on soprano and tenor sax accompanying Rouse's tenor, George Mraz on bass and Al Foster on drums...” ~ Mike Terrani

Greg Duncan & The Individuation Quintet release their new CD "Unification". This music is inspired by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung and half of all recording sales benefit Mental Health America. 

"This project hopes to create greater awareness about Swiss psychologist Carl Jung and shed light on the importance of mental health. Half of all funds generated will benefit the organization, Mental Health America. The music is influenced by the works and ideas of Jung (1875-1961), an expert in the study of the subconscious mind. The album is titled “Unification” to reflect Jung’s idea of individuation -- a term used for unifying the conscious with the subconscious mind while finding meaning in life. Many of the songtitles are based on psychological terms coined by Jung and are also inspired by the composer's own self-reflection."

Greg Duncan - Trumpet
Doug Rosenberg - Sax
Ben Lewis - Piano

She won six Grammy Awards and 17 Blues Music Awards. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, the Blues Hall of Fame in 2001, and the Grammy Hall of Fame in both 1999 and 2008.Rolling Stone magazine ranked James number 22 on its list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and number 62 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists.

George Freeman and the New Apartment Lounge Trio

Von and George Freeman, by anyone's account, are an important part of Chicago's jazz history. Like their peers such as Johnny Griffin, John Young, and Wilbur Campbell, they both developed an incredibly personal style. Von held his famous Tuesday night jam session at the New Apartment Lounge on 75th street for over three decades, where jazz fans from all over the world came to hear his incredible solos and musicians came to get the chance to play and learn from him. George Freeman, who performed with Charlie Parker and made his mark with Gene Ammons and Groove Holmes, continues to compose, improvise blistering solos, and entertain audiences into his 90s.

The band at the New Apartment lounge, Michael Raynor (joined Von in 1989), Mike Allemana (joined Von in 1997), and Matt Ferguson (joined Von in 2003), played as a unit for almost 10 years. George decided it was time to join forces with the trio to celebrate his brother’s legacy and make musical history. He says, "This many years with my brother means something, and I’m still here to enjoy it!”

Dave Rempis Quartet performs Johnny Dyani’s 1978 release SONG FOR BIKO. 

“Bassist Johnny Dyani had a large tone and a relaxed yet authoritative style. On this classic SteepleChase release he teams up with two other South African expatriates (altoist Dudu Pukwana and drummer Makay Ntshoko) plus cornetist Don Cherry for music that is haunting, emotional, somewhat adventurous, yet also melodic. While "Song for Biko" is the most memorable piece, all five of Dyani's originals (including the 16-and-a-half-minute "Jo'burg-New York") are special. The music combines together Dyani's South African folk heritage with Ornette Coleman's free bop and elements of avant-garde jazz. Highly recommended....” ~ Scott Yanow
