Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society 2016 Concert Series

Prices for Members start at $38

Drummer Antonio Sanchez has spent 15 years as a sideman with guitarist Pat Metheny, but now he has fully arrived as an ambitious, gifted leader. Sanchez was featured in the July 2015 issue of Downbeat discussing his current time in the spotlight due to the international acclaim and multiple awards received from his score for the 2014 film Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). His upcoming release with Migration, The Meridian Suite pushes his compositional skills in a way that no other project has done before. “The result is a masterwork that strikes a balance between intellectualism and accessibility—with occasional bursts of controlled chaos to make the proceedings even more interesting.” (Downbeat)

Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society 2016 Concert Series

Prices for Members start at $33

Orrin Evans has been recognized as one of the most inventive pianists of his generation. Evans is that rare musical force – a composer, pianist, bandleader, teacher, producer and arranger. Evans uses his musical influences to create an art experience comprised of American Songbook, spirituals, iconic jazz repertoire pieces by colleagues, plus his originals. Always pushing the boundaries of music – even questioning what it’s called – Evans attracts other brilliant, progressive musicians with a sound and style like no one else. Through 25 albums as a leader and co-leader, including his neo-soul/acid jazz ensemble Luv Park and the bracing collective trio Tarbaby, Evans has always followed a vigorously individual path.

Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society 2016 Concert Series

Prices for Members start at $38

Numerous accolades for Grammy-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano include multiple wins as Down Beat magazine’s Jazz Artist/Musician of the Year, Tenor Saxophonist of the Year and Album of the Year. The secret to Lovano’s success is his fearless ability to push the conceptual and thematic choices he makes in a quest for new modes of artistic expression. (JazzTimes) “His breathy, broad, and sometimes dark-toned tenor saxophone sound seems simultaneously comforting and radical. Jazz’s aesthetic no longer coagulates around a single dominant idea (if it ever really did).” (Blouin Artinfo) In Joe Lovano’s Classic Quartet, Lovano will explore the rich history of mainstream jazz through swing and bebop. An active proponent of straight-ahead jazz, Lovano drives the edges while honoring the structures.
