Jeremy Cunningham is a drummer, composer, and improviser. Originally from Cincinnati, he moved to Chicago in 2009, where he currently performs and composes as an integral part of the city’s vibrant music scene. He holds a Bachelors of Music from the College Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, where he studied with professor John Von Ohlen, whose zen, loose approach toward drumming continues to inform Cunningham’s technique today. Coltrane (and, by extension, Elvin Jones) is another huge influence; Cunningham cites an early introduction to “Live at Birdland” as a formative musical experience.

Since moving to Chicago, Cunningham has performed with an impressive roster of luminaries such as Von Freeman, Chris Foreman, Jeff Parker, Mike Allemana, Marquis Hill, Caroline Davis, Nick Mazzarella, and Dave Miller. He can be heard on Marquis Hill's albums "New Gospel" and "Sounds of the City," as well as Caroline Davis's "Live, Work, Play." In addition to performing in clubs and festivals throughout Chicago, Cunningham also appears throughout the United States with various projects. He’s has toured internationally with IsWhat?!, the Moshier/Lebrun Collective, and Paul Giallorenzo's GitGo.

Most recently, Cunningham completed a Masters in Music from DePaul University, under the mentorship of Dana Hall, and has been working on Meridian Trio, a collaborative effort with Nick Mazzarella and Matt Ulery. He also released his first album as a bandleader, re: dawn (from far). The album, out on ears&eyes Records, was recorded with some of Cunningham’s closest colleagues and mentors: Jeff Parker, Josh Johnson, and Ulery.

"He's very sensitive, yet a wonderfully powerful drummer as needed. He tastefully drives, and provides a sound heartbeat for the section..." —Marquis Hill

“Jeremy is one of the most in-demand drummers in Chicago, and he put together a special band of unique voices and personalities for re: dawn (from far). His openness as a leader really brings out the singularity in each musician's voice for this project.” —Matt Ulery

“…thunderous energy… great precision and intensity.” —WX5U, Detroit

"Cunningham has proved himself a nimble and versatile figure in a variety of mainstream and cutting-edge jazz ensembles, the Chicago drummer perhaps best known for his collaborations with trumpeter Marquis Hill." --Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

"Jeremy Cunningham's debut as a leader, re: dawn (from far), shows an assured musician and composer who effortlessly taps into the great musical tradition of the city [Chicago]." --Jakob Baekgaard, All About Jazz

"Cunningham has a loose, fluid touch and feel with a strong command of dynamics that, despite it's "openness," is tightly pegged in the groove." --Jeff Potter, Downbeat

Kristen Lee Sergeant featuring Ted Nash

Kristen Lee Sergeant featuring Ted Nash

Saturday May 20th - 8:00pm - Saturday May 20th - 11:00pm

The Jazz Estate
2423 N Murray Ave
Milwaukee, WI  53211 Map

We are pleased to welcome, from New York City, vocalist Kristen Lee Sergeant and Grammy Award Winning saxophonist Ted Nash.
Backed by Milwaukee's Own: Mark Davis Piano, Jeff Hamann Bass, Dave Bayles Drums.

Door Charge: $20 General * $25 Front Row Reserved
Some advance tickets are available!
Space wll be held for night-of door sales.

Kristen Lee Sergeant‘s emergence on the NYC jazz scene has branded this innovative artist with a distinct musicality, an intuitive sense of vocal phrasing, fresh lyrical interpretations, and arrangements all her own – and the word is spreading nationally. Jay Edwards, WCLK-FM Atlanta’s On-Air Jazz Tones host says “Sergeant takes your breath away as an effervescent spirit whose superb vocals and phrasing inject the lyrics with new life.” The Boston Globe has called her “especially entertaining.”

In October, Sergeant debuted the record at Birdland, and the performance spoke to even greater things to come. Downbeat chose her CD as its’ Editors’ Pick (September ‘16) – praising her “buttery to deliciously tart” vocals and “dramatically fresh arrangements.” Jay Edwards of WCLK-Atlanta notes her “effervescent spirit which injects the lyrics with new life.” Grammy winning writer, Bob Blumenthal, says her “superior intonation and control, an interpretive command that ranges from defiance to gentility, a willingness to take risks with harmony and rhythm, the freshness of her arrangements, synchronicity with her accompanists, and the manner in which all these elements yield a supremely musical package.”

Ted Nash enjoys an extraordinary career as a performer, conductor, composer, arranger and educator. Born in Los Angeles into a musical family (his father, Dick Nash, and uncle, the late Ted Nash, were both well-known jazz and studio musicians), Nash has that uncanny ability to mix freedom with substance, blues with intellect, and risk-taking with clarity. He is a co-founder of the New York-based Jazz Composers Collective, a musician-run, non-profit innovative entity dedicated to presenting the original works of composers pushing the boundaries of their self-expression. Nash is also a long-standing member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, with Wynton Marsalis.

Nash has become one of the most significant jazz composers of the 21st century. His recordings have received wide critical acclaim, appearing on the “best-of” lists in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Village Voice, and The Boston Globe. Portrait in Seven Shades, his first big band recording, garnered two Grammy nominations. His following big band album, Chakra, received critical acclaim and charted on Billboard.

“Neither a poster boy for the avant-garde nor a blinders-on traditionalist, Nash is simply his own man.” -Washington Post
