Nearly twenty years ago, this Norwegian pianist and composer came forth with a new approach to jazz that focuses on lyricism within a stripped-down approach to music, and it quickly commanded a worldwide following. Gustavsen departs from his more usual trio format to perform a continuous solo piano suite that melds traditional Norwegian hymns with acclaimed works of his own. The performance is pre-recorded in the Norwegian church where he serves as cantor and jazz pianist.

This Brazilian pianist and composer paints her musical pictures with contrasts – driving rhythm and delicacy, joyous dance and quiet introspection, playfulness and elegance, and her sound draws comparisons with Egberto Gismonti. She loves the challenge of playing solo and for this performance will draw from four albums worth of her own compositions as well as those by major Brazilian composers such as Hermeto Pascoal.

Combining whimsy with serious musicianship, Nessa can put audiences into a trance or up on their feet dancing! The group may be classified as a World Music/Celtic-inspired ensemble, but this genre definition limits the experience. A Nessa show or album will take you on a wild journey because the music is fusion in the truest sense. It’s what you get when you put highly trained classical, jazz, folk, Emmy winners, Grammy winners and world musicians in the same ensemble.

Holding traditional jazz deep in their hearts, these musicians have a deep passion for the early formation of jazz in all of its aspects: culture, structure, improvisation, and virtuosity. Pete brings with him a stellar line-up to get the “stomping” underway:  Dave Kosmyna (cornet); Ray Heitger (clarinet); Alex Belhaj (guitar); and Chris Tabaczynski (bass). Pete will be hitting it on the drums, of course, but also…the washboard!

The brainchild of drummer and multi-percussionist Pete Siers, and assembled in 1997, the concept of a small group focused on traditional Afro-Cuban rhythms has positioned Los Gatos as a consistent crowd pleaser. Built from the “old-school” Latin jazz values set forth by Cal Tjader, Mongo Santamaria, Tito Puente and Joe Cuba, the use of call-and-response vocal coro sections throughout their repertoire lifts the music to new heights of soulfulness and drama.

Creole Du Nord beautifully re-creates the irresistibly lively sound of Cajun folk music with a mix of musical history, fine musicianship, and pure dance-floor joy. Along with the quintessential New Orleans tunes like “Iko Iko,” “Jolie Blonde,” and many lesser-known staples of Cajun music, Creole du Nord works in some traditional Appalachian numbers like “Cluck Old Hen”.
