Ralph Peterson and his Fo'tet with special guest Todd Marcus was exciting and unique beyond words!
April 29, 2013
Thanks all for attending the Ralph Peterson Fo'tet concert with Special guest, Todd Marcus. What an exciting show!! Ralph was the master bandleader and his young players had one of the most unique sounds we've heard. Ralph is another good example of a mentor that inspires his young students and players - teaching them the tradition but encouraging them to develop their own sound while making their interpretations of jazz relevant to the present! Felix Peikli, Joseph Doubleday and Alex Toth were stunning performers - and adding Todd Marcus to the mix for the last 4 tunes bumped it up a big notch!! Thanks to all the players for creating such a memorable night and to the patrons (we had a sold out crowd!!) who showed their respect an appreciation for the music!! You'll never know how much your encourage these musicians!
Winard Harper Harper and Jeli Posse - true heros of Jazz!
March 24, 2013
The audience was completely blown away by the charismatic Winard Harper and his outstanding group, Jeli Posse. We've had so many great concerts at Jazzway, but this was one of our most special. So many folks came up and said it was one of the most enjoyable (if not THE best) concerts we've presented. Winard is such a beautiful soul and his virtuosity and happiness permeated the room. Watching the interplay between Winard and his equally joyful and musically outstanding band members was completely infectious and delighted the audience! A wonderful quote that was posted to his webpage recently sums it up:
“Most of us know that this music is profound; even apocalyptic at times. However, it is so often approached on such a casual social and commercial level, we tend to ignore and overlook the stirrings within our souls and the voices of our ancestral ‘spirits’ that remind us of the fact, that there is a revelation of certain prophetic dimensions inherent in this music.”
Everyone will remember this concert for a long time. And I am committed to bringing Winard and his group back. The dedication he shows to his young players in teaching them to revere the tradition of the past great ones, while encouraging them to be bold and modern in their innovative approaches, makes him one of our nation's most precious heroes of jazz!
