My wife, Deb, and I came to our first Jazzway evening last night. We were certainly not disappointed.My big question is how we could have lived in the area for 32 years and not be tuned into this scene when it was born. Such a great evening - fantastic music, beautiful home, most gracious hosts,and a wonderful and diverse collection of folks eager to share an evening of music. Thank you, Marianne and Howard, for your generosity of spirit and all of your hard work.

Benny Golson and the trio of exceptional musicians was more than anyone could imagine.. The legend Benny Golson played that sax and gifted everyone with great stories of days gone by. He was accompanied by his great piano man, fierce bass man, and dynamic drummer. Jazzway has the greatest hospitality. Benny Golson, so charming taking photos and engaging in conversation .BEST SHOW EVER!!!!!!

Marianne and Howard, You did it again!! You invited the world, and all came to celebrate the 10h anniversary of your generous and gracious 'house music'. This was our 3rd time attending one of your fabulous concerts. Warren Wolf and his outstanding musicians and soloist blew us away. How fortunate we are that YOU both make it possible for us to hear and see such great musicians close up. Dessert anyone? almost worth the price of admission. What a 'sweet' way to end a beautiful evening. Thanks to you and all that worked so hard. renate

What a great way to close Jazz Appreciation April. Marianne Solivan and her trio were finger snapping (on the 2nd and 4th) toe tapping engaging. Guest, Irene Jalenti, added spice with her duet, and a solo reminding me of Astrud Gilberto. The hosts and after show treats topped a great evening. And, I won Marianne's CD!!!

Just a big thank you for hosting the Craig Alston show. It was the first time that my wife and I ever attended one of your events and it was absolutely fabulous. Such a warm cozy venue, terrific top notch music and then to be seated among a super friendly audience, it was perfect. We were pleasantly surprised on how comfortable we felt in what was a unknown environment for us, but the warm friendly greeting at the front door quickly set the relaxed tone of the evening for us. Hearing the music live was better than any recording and your sound system was set in perfect volume for the room. The seasonal tunes jazz style really rocked and they honestly enhanced our holiday season experience this year. I can't think of a better way to kick off the holidays than a Jazzway 6004 show. We will be back for more shows and the next time we will be inviting some of our friends to join us. Hope to see another Jazzway6004 real soon. Thank you, Andy & Linda

The Tim Warfield Holiday Concert was high quality jazz as promised and those olde Christmas tunes never sounded so good, with Tim's arrangements and the intimate venue. The lovely Joanna Pascale gave a sultry vocal performance while local great Cyrus Chestnut on piano was extraordinary. Marianne brought down the house with a lovely rendition of, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. All great stuff & great musicians many thanks to Marianne and Howard for putting this together.

My first visit was 6/11/11 for Warren Wolf, and I hope not the last. Warren's a great performer and had a great band. I knew about Jeremy Pelt, but when Tim Green--somebody I had never heard of before--joined for the last tune the level of music, already high, took off even higher. A memorable evening of music for those lucky Baltimoreans who were there.

We had many missed opportunities that later became historically altering events; such as the Beatles, Elvis, and Coltrane with Curtis Fuller in concert. Jazzway provides a rare "second chance." Not only did Howard and Marianne's fortunate guests hear Curtis Fuller in an intimate "living room" setting, they were treated to a "stagefull" of consummate musicians! What a memorable experience. Don't miss the next concert and an opportunity to hear Marianne's vocal and interpretive talent.

From: J.W. Cooper
On: May 18, 2009 @09:36 pm
Oh what a special treat we enjoyed tonight- Shelia Jordan’s “Voice and Bass”, with the smooth Cameron Brown, was so warm and entertaining, funny and sharp, covering so many classics with wit and charm. Quite the show-woman, Shelia sings and improvises like no other-it was a moving performance to behold and witness a true piece of jazz history. Shelia helps us to imagine those early days with Charlie Parker and the band. With great respect she honors jazz history and tradition, especially of those greats that passed way too soon. Her message to emerging musicians is to persevere and, “never, never, never give up”, as she has done. A special guest duet with Jay Clayton added a sassy musical repartee and loving combination as each imitated and complimented the other. Likewise, a cameo by Todd Marcus on Clarinet added another fine dimension to the delightful evening soiree. Where else can you have such an intimate atmosphere and be so up close and personal with the artists. The gourmet diner and desserts completed a perfect evening. Kudos to Marianne and Howard for making this all possible.

Thanks so very much for inviting us to perform at your venue. It is a pleasure to perform in an intimate and warm performance space. In addition the audience is always accepting of the creative efforts of the artists. The mission of the Carl Grubbs Ensemble is to perform and acquaint the audience with the music of jazz masters and contemporary artists.

Dear Marianne & Howard, Thank you so much for having us at Jazzway 6004. It was indeed a pleasure to perform for such a wonderfully warm audience in such an absolutely "hip" venue. Very importantly, I'd like to thank you as well, for presenting jazz in the manner befitting to the art form... intimately, with elegance, style, and grace. Your hospitality goes unrivaled! All the best to you both in your future endeavors...

My wife and I went to our first show at Jazzway last night where we saw Tim Warfield, Nicholas Payton and Joanna Pascale. The jazz, food and people were great but the most amazing thing was the venue. Where can you see the jazz talent of this caliber, literally eat dinner with them and then have them perform for you in your living room. This was absolutely amazing! I am still blown away by all this. Just absolutely amazing! We can't wait until next month.

Perhaps Baltimore's best kept secret, once again Jazzway treated us to a delightful holiday performance and this time with nationally acclaimed artists. Even Miles and Coltrane would be proud of the way that Nicholas Payton and Tim Warfield delivered tonight. This band was in sync with vocalist Joanna Pascale, for a truely memorable night. With top quality music, gourmet food and the warm personal venue what more could you ask for. Kudos to Marianne, Howard B and the volunteers- just outstanding.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Susan Jones Quartet and the great Jazzway 6004 venue. We were amazed at how well Marianne fit in with the Quartet on her vocal set. As first-timers we were made to feel very comfortable by Howard and Marianne. We especially liked the visits by Bessie as she made her rounds. The dinner was terrific and exceeded our expectations. Thanks for a great evening.

The concert on Oct 17,2008 was outstanding. Marianne's voice is amazing and the jazz muicians were wonderful. I am not sure whether Marianne should devote herself to singing or cooking since the food was as "4 star" as the music. Howard and Marianne are gracious hosts and adorable Betsy was the perfect additional group member.

Marianne and Howard, Once again, you've made a very special night of great music, people, food, and good vibes in your home. Thanks also for the special celebration! Lafayette Gilchrist and Carl Grubbs and the entire ensemble (not to mention Marianne!), hard to beat. Jazzway, to me, is the quintessential great jazz night out. Your efforts are appreciated—thank you!

The music is great - Marianne is a great singer indeed. The food is excellent - Marianne is a great cook indeed. The house is gorgeous - Marianne has great taste indeed. And Howard is just a hell of a HUNK!

What am amazing experience at the Craig Alston concert on Jan 26th! This was my first time at a house concert. There is no comparison to attending a commercial concert. This venue was like visiting friends at a social event! People were friendly and very attentive to the performances. Thank you Howard and Marianne for opening your beautiful home for these events. About the music - unbelievable - it was top quality! The talent of all the musicians was excellent! I really don't have enough adjectives to describe how good they were!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the "last concert" of the Park House Jam on December 15th! Like Howard says, you should plan a "last concert" every 6 months! Marianne, the food was delicious! I don't know how you do it. Howard, you are such a gracious host. I feel like family (although your family won't tell me how to get to the parking lot in front!). Wishing you a healthy and joyful 2008!

All I can say is "WOW!" When you come to a concert you expect the performers, singers and musicians, to be top rate. That expectation was certainly satisfied. The unexpected piece was the venue. Intimate, warm, welcoming barely begins the list of adjectives that describe the house and especially the host and hostess. My first time there, and I felt like I was visiting with life long friends. My wife and I actually only knew the people we came with, but we quickly met other interesting and engaging people. We knew there was going to be food and we weren't expecting a culinary masterpiece, but it was pretty darn close. All in all, we had a marvelous time and would certainly recommend it to all our friends. Best of luck to Howard and Marianne, and thank you for bringing this idea and venue to life. There's nothing commercial about a concert at 6004!
