Milwaukee's Music Lounge


EST. 1977

Located on Milwaukee's Eastside, the Estate has been hosting some of the best local and national jazz musicians for over 40 years. Unassuming and intimate, the space feels more like a neighborhood cocktail joint than a national jazz venue, but looks certainly can be deceiving, Our stage has been host to many great jazz musicians including Joe Henderson, Cedar Walton, Red Rodney, Eric Alexander, Al Foster, Chris Potter, Conrad Herwig, Brian Lynch, Eddie Gomez, Rudder, Arturo O’ Farrill, Jim Rotondi, Rick Germanson, David Hazeltine, Danilo Perez, The Bad Plus,Dan Nimmer, Charlie Sepulveda and the Turnaround, Bruce Barth, Tom Harrell, and Charles McPherson.

Recently purchased and refreshed by the owner of Bryant's Cocktail Lounge, the Estate now features a top notch cocktail program to compliment the world class music. Cocktails range from $8-$12 and rotate seasonally, but are always made with the best ingredients. In addition, classic cocktails are always available and we have a excellent selection of spirits.

Open seven nights a week from 5PM to 2AM No Reservations Accepted

Record Session at the Jazz Estate
MRS. FUN is looking forward to covering this incredible record by Grant Green
"Even with all the straightforward pop overtones of much of the material, the quartet's playing is still very subtly advanced, both in its rhythmic interaction and the soloists' harmonic choices. Whether augmented by an extra voice or sticking to the basic trio format, the Green/Young/Jones team produced some of the most sophisticated organ/guitar combo music ever waxed, and I Want to Hold Your Hand is the loveliest of the bunch

*******
For the past twenty years with four albums as a leader, several studio projects as a side man, and countless worldwide performances, saxophonist, vocalist and composer Juli Wood has established herself as a solid, swinging, lyrical and entertaining performer on Chicago’s music scene. Juli has played many jazz clubs and festivals nationally and internationally; Chicago Jazz Fest, Hyde Park Jazz Fest, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Chicago’s main jazz clubs – Jazz Showcase, Green Mill, Andy’s and Katerina’s. Skansen Jazz and Blues (Stockholm , Sweden), Pori Jazz Fest (Finland), Bent J’s club (Aarhus, Denmark), Storyville (Helsinki Finland), Arlandia Jazz Fest (Aaland Islands, Finland) and the ” Made in Chicago ” jazz festival in Poznan Poland to name a few.

Juli is in the tradition of saxophonists who were also great vocalists; Cleanhead Vincent, Eddie Harris, and Louis Jordan. Never has that been more apparent than in “5 4 3 2 1 Juli Wood,” her latest recording and most ambitious project to date.

One of the pleasures of attending the Chicago Jazz Festival over Labor Day weekend each year is being able to hear the bevy of local players who make up the windy city jazz scene. Last year’s treat was Juli Wood, a gutsy tenor and baritone saxophonist who also sings with the earthy gusto of an R&B diva filtered through a hard bop sensibility.

Jazz Estate is happy to feature SistaStrings for their long awaited debut EP Release Show and to kick off their upcoming summer tour with Nickel&Rose! Come get your advanced copy of "Lift" before it's official release on July 12th. Don’t miss this rare Sunday at the Estate!

SISTASTRINGS RELEASE DEBUT EP


“The magic of SistaStrings is equal parts talent, training and telepathy. “ Steph Kilen, Milwaukee Magazine.

“The interplay of their voices and instruments is soulful, passionate, and unforgettable.” Isthmus

Milwaukee-based SistaStrings (violinist Chauntee Ross and cellist Monique Ross) have astonished audiences with their virtuosity and eclectic range. Audience demand for a SistaStrings’ recording is being met at long last with the release of “Lift” on July 12.

The hallmark of the SistaStrings’ sound is their dizzying range of influences. Classical music has pride of place, but jazz, R&B, gospel, and pop are of equal significance, fusing into a singular vision and expression.

The 5 track EP covers all the bases audiences anticipate from a SistaString’s show. Two original songs (“Shea Butter Dreams” and “Her Name Was”) along with a radical re-imagination of a classic cadenza ("Cadenza For Chauntee") and stirring performances of gospel classics (“Deep River” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing”).

Individually, Monique and Chauntee have performed in some of the most reputable venues in the country, including Carnegie Hall, and have soloed with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Madison Symphony Orchestra.

SistaStrings formed in 2014 after undergraduate training (Chauntee from University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and Monique from Wheaton College and University of Wisconsin-Madison), and the sisters returned home to Milwaukee and started doing string arrangements for local hip-hop artists. This led to performances with Malik Yusef, Black Violin, Bone Thugs ‘N Harmony, Lupe Fiasco, BJ The Chicago Kid, and The Roots. They perform frequently with Peter Mulvey.

Outreach and representation are important to these two young ladies as African American string players. They often perform and teach in schools and youth centers, encouraging educators and students alike. The ladies are advocates for diversity in the arts and promote social justice in all that they do musically.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nickel&Rose is an American folk-music duo made up of Upright Bassist Johanna Rose and Guitarist Carl Nichols. They formed in the summer of 2016 and spent their first winter and the following spring traveling Europe, playing dozens of shows in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Poland, and Ukraine. While in Berlin they recorded their EP, Oh Sweet Love, released in April 2017. Oh Sweet Love, is a sweet-sounding auditory souvenir of Nichols’ and Rose’s four month European journey and a recorded testament to the two-piece’s ability to turn tough times into something vibrant with help from a traveling companion.

Nickel&Rose have influences that span the spectrum of American music. Carl’s background brings elements of West African music and Blues while Johanna brings her experience playing Bluegrass, Folk and Jazz. From loss to heart break to love, Nickel&Rose address the human experience with gentle harmonies and soul stirring cries. With a shared appreciation for traditional music and a desire to break rules, the two have have created a unique sound that embodies Americana's past and future.

"'Americana' reminds me of the true power of songs: while I could write pages and pages about the issues this song raises, Nichols and Rose distill the story to such a fine point that it truly takes my breath away and makes the hairs on my arms rise whenever I listen to it." [8/16/18]

...it doesn’t hurt that it’s one of the best damn folk songs I’ve heard all year." [8/15/18]

During a time when equality on the airwaves has become such a widespread conversation, “Americana” serves as a needed reminder that the genre’s roots did not grow from a white man’s soil." [7/25/18]

The group has released two albums. Focus, released in 2012 on ears&eyes Records, was called "refreshingly unique" and "captivating" by the Chicago Jazz Magazine, and led stereogum.com to describe the band as "masters of modern jazz as a language." The group's debut album, We Always Get There, was released in 2014, and prompted allaboutjazz.com to state in a four-star review that with "this superbly imaginative and cohesive recording, Dietrich proves himself and apt bandleader, an exceptional composer and a superlative performer."

Frank Catalano:
When he was 18, he toured with the rock band Santana, then signed with Delmark to record his first solo album, Cut it Out (1988), with trumpeter Ira Sullivan.

Cut It Out was chosen for album of the year lists by the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Weekly, and JazzTimes. Catalano has worked with Louie Bellson, Tony Bennett, Randy Brecker, Charles Earland, Kenny Loggins, Jimmy McGriff, Arturo Sandoval, Johnny "Hammond" Smith, and Clark Terry. He recorded Bye Bye Blackbird with David Sanborn and Jimmy Chamberlin of the Smashing Pumpkins.

While recording with Ministry in 1999, Catalano was inspired by the band's use of sampling and engineered a sampling keyboard attachment for the saxophone. His device was patented on Dec. 11, 2001, on the two-year anniversary of the death of his mentor, Charles Earland.

His albums include You Talkin to Me?!, which features a tandem tenor session with Von Freeman, and Live at the Green Mill with Randy Brecker on trumpet. Mighty Burner debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard sales chart, while Bang debuted at No. 12.

****
There’s a love song to capture every aspect of romance, from the unrequited to the tempestuous. With True Love (due out May 3 via Rondette Jazz), vocalist John Dokes turns his attention, and his elegant baritone, to something deeper. Over the course of ten well-chosen songs and an equally diverse range of moods, Dokes explores the more profound, committed side of affairs of the heart, bringing soulful nuance and hard-earned wisdom to each tale of ardent amour.

As Dokes makes clear with each knowing inflection and wry turn of phrase, committed love doesn’t necessarily translate into comfortable routine. Throughout the album’s ten songs, Dokes imbues each lyric with smoldering passion or heart-wrenching loss, all the more affecting for being so deeply felt. Even in his suave delivery of the album’s sole original track, “Cool Enough,” the crooner undercuts his dapper cool with a tinge of self-doubt, pleading to know, “Am I cool?”

Though he may have his moments of uncertainty, there’s little question while listening to True Love that Dokes falls squarely into the “cool” camp. Formerly a champion lindy hopper, he continues to get audiences dancing in his regular gig singing with the George Gee Big Band; he carries the same self-confidence from the ballroom to the boardroom, as the Chief Content Officer and President of Accuweather Network, following similarly successful tenures at Viacom and Marvel Entertainment.

When working with the world-class quartet on True Love, though, the executive suite is the furthest thing from Dokes’ mind. The album is the second in a planned trilogy, each of which pairs Dokes with a different frontline horn. The first was 2017’s Forever Reasons, his initial small group endeavor (following his big band debut, John Dokes Sings, George Gee Swings), which featured trombonist David Gibson with the same rhythm section as this release: pianist Steve Einerson (Eric Alexander, Eddie Henderson), bassist Alex Claffy (Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jimmy Cobb), and drummer Lawrence Leathers (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Aaron Diehl).

On True Love they’re joined by alto saxophonist Mark Gross (Delfeayo Marsalis, Dave Holland), whose sinuous tone is an ideal match for Dokes’ dulcet baritone. Their chemistry is immediately apparent on “A Sleepin’ Bee,” the opening track, calling to mind the playful back-and-forth between Nancy Wilson and Cannonball Adderley on their immortal 1961 rendition, which inspired Dokes to include the song here. The song’s lyric, by writer Truman Capote, also lends the album its title, as Dokes concludes the song by repeating the phrase like an echoing memory.

Jazz * Funk * Fusion with Chicago's Hoodsmoke

$13 General Admission
$23 Limited Reserved Table Seating

Tickets: hoodsmoke.brownpapertickets.com

****

Bridging both genres and generations with original music steeped in the history of its influences, Hood Smoke’s sonic narrative illustrates timeless stories using beautifully simple melodies set to a rhythmic foundation built firmly from the bass up.

Since the release of their debut album, Laid Up In Ordinary (2012), Chicago’s Hood Smoke has continued to narrow the gap between retro and modern sounds in a unique and sincere way.

The band is a tour de force whose past and present members have performed with Quincy Jones, Earth, Wind & Fire, Koko Taylor, Rhymefest, Nick Lowe, Chris Thile, and Umphrey’s Mcgee.

With their second album, Regular Neurotic (2014), the band began its collaboration with producer and engineer Anthony Gravino. The record’s anthem “Never Suffering” gained the band recognition from American Songwriter and the Chicago Sun-Times declared Hood Smoke a “must-see act.”

With their third release Rough Around The Hedges (2016), which Newcity described as “whip-smart jazz-funk-fusion” whose “lyrics are top-notch throughout,” Doherty proved his prolificacy as a composer and lyricist. 2016 also marked the band’s first national tour as they wooed audiences at large rock festivals and intimate jazz clubs, alike.

The band’s fourth album Cannonball Porch (2018) showcases Doherty’s vulnerable and melancholic voice on what he promises to be “the most simplistic, lyrically creative, and to the point” Hood Smoke album to date.

On One of a Kind, his debut release, Benack also reveals himself to be a wry and expressive songwriter and lyricist, bringing his boundless musical gifts together in a program that’s steeped in tradition but every bit as restlessly individual as his album title suggests.

Whether augmented by an extra voice or sticking to the basic trio format, the Green/Young/Jones team produced some of the most sophisticated organ/guitar combo music ever waxed, and I Want to Hold Your Hand is the loveliest of the bunch

*******
For the past twenty years with four albums as a leader, several studio projects as a side man, and countless worldwide performances, saxophonist, vocalist and composer Juli Wood has established herself as a solid, swinging, lyrical and entertaining performer on Chicago’s music scene. Juli has played many jazz clubs and festivals nationally and internationally; Chicago Jazz Fest, Hyde Park Jazz Fest, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Chicago’s main jazz clubs – Jazz Showcase, Green Mill, Andy’s and Katerina’s. Skansen Jazz and Blues (Stockholm , Sweden), Pori Jazz Fest (Finland), Bent J’s club (Aarhus, Denmark), Storyville (Helsinki Finland), Arlandia Jazz Fest (Aaland Islands, Finland) and the ” Made in Chicago ” jazz festival in Poznan Poland to name a few.

Juli is in the tradition of saxophonists who were also great vocalists; Cleanhead Vincent, Eddie Harris, and Louis Jordan. Never has that been more apparent than in “5 4 3 2 1 Juli Wood,” her latest recording and most ambitious project to date.

One of the pleasures of attending the Chicago Jazz Festival over Labor Day weekend each year is being able to hear the bevy of local players who make up the windy city jazz scene. Last year’s treat was Juli Wood, a gutsy tenor and baritone saxophonist who also sings with the earthy gusto of an R&B diva filtered through a hard bop sensibility.

SISTASTRINGS RELEASE DEBUT EP


“The magic of SistaStrings is equal parts talent, training and telepathy. “ Steph Kilen, Milwaukee Magazine.

“The interplay of their voices and instruments is soulful, passionate, and unforgettable.” Isthmus

Milwaukee-based SistaStrings (violinist Chauntee Ross and cellist Monique Ross) have astonished audiences with their virtuosity and eclectic range. Audience demand for a SistaStrings’ recording is being met at long last with the release of “Lift” on July 12.

The hallmark of the SistaStrings’ sound is their dizzying range of influences. Classical music has pride of place, but jazz, R&B, gospel, and pop are of equal significance, fusing into a singular vision and expression.

The 5 track EP covers all the bases audiences anticipate from a SistaString’s show. Two original songs (“Shea Butter Dreams” and “Her Name Was”) along with a radical re-imagination of a classic cadenza ("Cadenza For Chauntee") and stirring performances of gospel classics (“Deep River” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing”).

Individually, Monique and Chauntee have performed in some of the most reputable venues in the country, including Carnegie Hall, and have soloed with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Madison Symphony Orchestra.

SistaStrings formed in 2014 after undergraduate training (Chauntee from University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and Monique from Wheaton College and University of Wisconsin-Madison), and the sisters returned home to Milwaukee and started doing string arrangements for local hip-hop artists. This led to performances with Malik Yusef, Black Violin, Bone Thugs ‘N Harmony, Lupe Fiasco, BJ The Chicago Kid, and The Roots. They perform frequently with Peter Mulvey.

Outreach and representation are important to these two young ladies as African American string players. They often perform and teach in schools and youth centers, encouraging educators and students alike. The ladies are advocates for diversity in the arts and promote social justice in all that they do musically.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nickel&Rose is an American folk-music duo made up of Upright Bassist Johanna Rose and Guitarist Carl Nichols. They formed in the summer of 2016 and spent their first winter and the following spring traveling Europe, playing dozens of shows in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Poland, and Ukraine. While in Berlin they recorded their EP, Oh Sweet Love, released in April 2017. Oh Sweet Love, is a sweet-sounding auditory souvenir of Nichols’ and Rose’s four month European journey and a recorded testament to the two-piece’s ability to turn tough times into something vibrant with help from a traveling companion.

Nickel&Rose have influences that span the spectrum of American music. Carl’s background brings elements of West African music and Blues while Johanna brings her experience playing Bluegrass, Folk and Jazz. From loss to heart break to love, Nickel&Rose address the human experience with gentle harmonies and soul stirring cries. With a shared appreciation for traditional music and a desire to break rules, the two have have created a unique sound that embodies Americana's past and future.

"'Americana' reminds me of the true power of songs: while I could write pages and pages about the issues this song raises, Nichols and Rose distill the story to such a fine point that it truly takes my breath away and makes the hairs on my arms rise whenever I listen to it." [8/16/18]

The group has released two albums. Focus, released in 2012 on ears&eyes Records, was called "refreshingly unique" and "captivating" by the Chicago Jazz Magazine, and led stereogum.com to describe the band as "masters of modern jazz as a language." The group's debut album, We Always Get There, was released in 2014, and prompted allaboutjazz.com to state in a four-star review that with "this superbly imaginative and cohesive recording, Dietrich proves himself and apt bandleader, an exceptional composer and a superlative performer."

When he was 18, he toured with the rock band Santana, then signed with Delmark to record his first solo album, Cut it Out (1988), with trumpeter Ira Sullivan.

Cut It Out was chosen for album of the year lists by the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Weekly, and JazzTimes. Catalano has worked with Louie Bellson, Tony Bennett, Randy Brecker, Charles Earland, Kenny Loggins, Jimmy McGriff, Arturo Sandoval, Johnny "Hammond" Smith, and Clark Terry. He recorded Bye Bye Blackbird with David Sanborn and Jimmy Chamberlin of the Smashing Pumpkins.

While recording with Ministry in 1999, Catalano was inspired by the band's use of sampling and engineered a sampling keyboard attachment for the saxophone. His device was patented on Dec. 11, 2001, on the two-year anniversary of the death of his mentor, Charles Earland.

His albums include You Talkin to Me?!, which features a tandem tenor session with Von Freeman, and Live at the Green Mill with Randy Brecker on trumpet. Mighty Burner debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard sales chart, while Bang debuted at No. 12.

$15 General

Advance Tickets Available Soon!
johndokes.brownpapertickets.com/

****
There’s a love song to capture every aspect of romance, from the unrequited to the tempestuous. With True Love (due out May 3 via Rondette Jazz), vocalist John Dokes turns his attention, and his elegant baritone, to something deeper. Over the course of ten well-chosen songs and an equally diverse range of moods, Dokes explores the more profound, committed side of affairs of the heart, bringing soulful nuance and hard-earned wisdom to each tale of ardent amour.

As Dokes makes clear with each knowing inflection and wry turn of phrase, committed love doesn’t necessarily translate into comfortable routine. Throughout the album’s ten songs, Dokes imbues each lyric with smoldering passion or heart-wrenching loss, all the more affecting for being so deeply felt. Even in his suave delivery of the album’s sole original track, “Cool Enough,” the crooner undercuts his dapper cool with a tinge of self-doubt, pleading to know, “Am I cool?”

Though he may have his moments of uncertainty, there’s little question while listening to True Love that Dokes falls squarely into the “cool” camp. Formerly a champion lindy hopper, he continues to get audiences dancing in his regular gig singing with the George Gee Big Band; he carries the same self-confidence from the ballroom to the boardroom, as the Chief Content Officer and President of Accuweather Network, following similarly successful tenures at Viacom and Marvel Entertainment.

When working with the world-class quartet on True Love, though, the executive suite is the furthest thing from Dokes’ mind. The album is the second in a planned trilogy, each of which pairs Dokes with a different frontline horn. The first was 2017’s Forever Reasons, his initial small group endeavor (following his big band debut, John Dokes Sings, George Gee Swings), which featured trombonist David Gibson with the same rhythm section as this release: pianist Steve Einerson (Eric Alexander, Eddie Henderson), bassist Alex Claffy (Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jimmy Cobb), and drummer Lawrence Leathers (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Aaron Diehl).

On True Love they’re joined by alto saxophonist Mark Gross (Delfeayo Marsalis, Dave Holland), whose sinuous tone is an ideal match for Dokes’ dulcet baritone. Their chemistry is immediately apparent on “A Sleepin’ Bee,” the opening track, calling to mind the playful back-and-forth between Nancy Wilson and Cannonball Adderley on their immortal 1961 rendition, which inspired Dokes to include the song here. The song’s lyric, by writer Truman Capote, also lends the album its title, as Dokes concludes the song by repeating the phrase like an echoing memory.

Jazz * Funk * Fusion with Chicago's Hoodsmoke

$13 General Admission
$23 Limited Reserved Table Seating

Tickets: hoodsmoke.brownpapertickets.com

****

Bridging both genres and generations with original music steeped in the history of its influences, Hood Smoke’s sonic narrative illustrates timeless stories using beautifully simple melodies set to a rhythmic foundation built firmly from the bass up.

Since the release of their debut album, Laid Up In Ordinary (2012), Chicago’s Hood Smoke has continued to narrow the gap between retro and modern sounds in a unique and sincere way.

The band is a tour de force whose past and present members have performed with Quincy Jones, Earth, Wind & Fire, Koko Taylor, Rhymefest, Nick Lowe, Chris Thile, and Umphrey’s Mcgee.

With their second album, Regular Neurotic (2014), the band began its collaboration with producer and engineer Anthony Gravino. The record’s anthem “Never Suffering” gained the band recognition from American Songwriter and the Chicago Sun-Times declared Hood Smoke a “must-see act.”

With their third release Rough Around The Hedges (2016), which Newcity described as “whip-smart jazz-funk-fusion” whose “lyrics are top-notch throughout,” Doherty proved his prolificacy as a composer and lyricist. 2016 also marked the band’s first national tour as they wooed audiences at large rock festivals and intimate jazz clubs, alike.

The band’s fourth album Cannonball Porch (2018) showcases Doherty’s vulnerable and melancholic voice on what he promises to be “the most simplistic, lyrically creative, and to the point” Hood Smoke album to date.

*******
For the past twenty years with four albums as a leader, several studio projects as a side man, and countless worldwide performances, saxophonist, vocalist and composer Juli Wood has established herself as a solid, swinging, lyrical and entertaining performer on Chicago’s music scene. Juli has played many jazz clubs and festivals nationally and internationally; Chicago Jazz Fest, Hyde Park Jazz Fest, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Chicago’s main jazz clubs – Jazz Showcase, Green Mill, Andy’s and Katerina’s. Skansen Jazz and Blues (Stockholm , Sweden), Pori Jazz Fest (Finland), Bent J’s club (Aarhus, Denmark), Storyville (Helsinki Finland), Arlandia Jazz Fest (Aaland Islands, Finland) and the ” Made in Chicago ” jazz festival in Poznan Poland to name a few.

Juli is in the tradition of saxophonists who were also great vocalists; Cleanhead Vincent, Eddie Harris, and Louis Jordan. Never has that been more apparent than in “5 4 3 2 1 Juli Wood,” her latest recording and most ambitious project to date.

One of the pleasures of attending the Chicago Jazz Festival over Labor Day weekend each year is being able to hear the bevy of local players who make up the windy city jazz scene. Last year’s treat was Juli Wood, a gutsy tenor and baritone saxophonist who also sings with the earthy gusto of an R&B diva filtered through a hard bop sensibility.

SISTASTRINGS RELEASE DEBUT EP


“The magic of SistaStrings is equal parts talent, training and telepathy. “ Steph Kilen, Milwaukee Magazine.

“The interplay of their voices and instruments is soulful, passionate, and unforgettable.” Isthmus

Milwaukee-based SistaStrings (violinist Chauntee Ross and cellist Monique Ross) have astonished audiences with their virtuosity and eclectic range. Audience demand for a SistaStrings’ recording is being met at long last with the release of “Lift” on July 12.

The hallmark of the SistaStrings’ sound is their dizzying range of influences. Classical music has pride of place, but jazz, R&B, gospel, and pop are of equal significance, fusing into a singular vision and expression.

The 5 track EP covers all the bases audiences anticipate from a SistaString’s show. Two original songs (“Shea Butter Dreams” and “Her Name Was”) along with a radical re-imagination of a classic cadenza ("Cadenza For Chauntee") and stirring performances of gospel classics (“Deep River” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing”).

Individually, Monique and Chauntee have performed in some of the most reputable venues in the country, including Carnegie Hall, and have soloed with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Madison Symphony Orchestra.

SistaStrings formed in 2014 after undergraduate training (Chauntee from University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and Monique from Wheaton College and University of Wisconsin-Madison), and the sisters returned home to Milwaukee and started doing string arrangements for local hip-hop artists. This led to performances with Malik Yusef, Black Violin, Bone Thugs ‘N Harmony, Lupe Fiasco, BJ The Chicago Kid, and The Roots. They perform frequently with Peter Mulvey.

Outreach and representation are important to these two young ladies as African American string players. They often perform and teach in schools and youth centers, encouraging educators and students alike. The ladies are advocates for diversity in the arts and promote social justice in all that they do musically.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nickel&Rose is an American folk-music duo made up of Upright Bassist Johanna Rose and Guitarist Carl Nichols. They formed in the summer of 2016 and spent their first winter and the following spring traveling Europe, playing dozens of shows in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Poland, and Ukraine. While in Berlin they recorded their EP, Oh Sweet Love, released in April 2017. Oh Sweet Love, is a sweet-sounding auditory souvenir of Nichols’ and Rose’s four month European journey and a recorded testament to the two-piece’s ability to turn tough times into something vibrant with help from a traveling companion.

Nickel&Rose have influences that span the spectrum of American music. Carl’s background brings elements of West African music and Blues while Johanna brings her experience playing Bluegrass, Folk and Jazz. From loss to heart break to love, Nickel&Rose address the human experience with gentle harmonies and soul stirring cries. With a shared appreciation for traditional music and a desire to break rules, the two have have created a unique sound that embodies Americana's past and future.

"'Americana' reminds me of the true power of songs: while I could write pages and pages about the issues this song raises, Nichols and Rose distill the story to such a fine point that it truly takes my breath away and makes the hairs on my arms rise whenever I listen to it." [8/16/18]

Ellisa Sun cuts out her heart and leaves it on the stage—which is why she never wears white. Currently on her first national tour, Ellisa is showing she has what it takes to make it on her own. Just a guitar, a 30-foot RV, and an insatiable desire to perform. Raised in Los Angeles, Ellisa migrated north and found a home in San Francisco’s creative scene, where she wrangled a seven-piece band to play her music. Her sound is honest, heartfelt and textured, combining elements of jazz, soul, and pop.... See MoreSee Less

The Chicago-based Paul Dietrich Quintet was formed in 2012 as a vehicle for its leader's small group writing and maintains an active performance schedule in Chicago and throughout the Midwest. The group has released two albums. Focus, released in 2012 on ears&eyes Records, was called "refreshingly unique" and "captivating" by the Chicago Jazz Magazine, and led stereogum.com to describe the band as "masters of modern jazz as a language." The group's debut album, We Always Get There, was released in 2014, and prompted allaboutjazz.com to state in a four-star review that with "this superbly imaginative and cohesive recording, Dietrich proves himself and apt bandleader, an exceptional composer and a superlative performer."

*****

Frank Catalano:
When he was 18, he toured with the rock band Santana, then signed with Delmark to record his first solo album, Cut it Out (1988), with trumpeter Ira Sullivan.

Cut It Out was chosen for album of the year lists by the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Weekly, and JazzTimes. Catalano has worked with Louie Bellson, Tony Bennett, Randy Brecker, Charles Earland, Kenny Loggins, Jimmy McGriff, Arturo Sandoval, Johnny "Hammond" Smith, and Clark Terry. He recorded Bye Bye Blackbird with David Sanborn and Jimmy Chamberlin of the Smashing Pumpkins.

While recording with Ministry in 1999, Catalano was inspired by the band's use of sampling and engineered a sampling keyboard attachment for the saxophone. His device was patented on Dec. 11, 2001, on the two-year anniversary of the death of his mentor, Charles Earland.

His albums include You Talkin to Me?!, which features a tandem tenor session with Von Freeman, and Live at the Green Mill with Randy Brecker on trumpet. Mighty Burner debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard sales chart, while Bang debuted at No. 12.

johndokes.brownpapertickets.com/

****
There’s a love song to capture every aspect of romance, from the unrequited to the tempestuous. With True Love (due out May 3 via Rondette Jazz), vocalist John Dokes turns his attention, and his elegant baritone, to something deeper. Over the course of ten well-chosen songs and an equally diverse range of moods, Dokes explores the more profound, committed side of affairs of the heart, bringing soulful nuance and hard-earned wisdom to each tale of ardent amour.

As Dokes makes clear with each knowing inflection and wry turn of phrase, committed love doesn’t necessarily translate into comfortable routine. Throughout the album’s ten songs, Dokes imbues each lyric with smoldering passion or heart-wrenching loss, all the more affecting for being so deeply felt. Even in his suave delivery of the album’s sole original track, “Cool Enough,” the crooner undercuts his dapper cool with a tinge of self-doubt, pleading to know, “Am I cool?”

Though he may have his moments of uncertainty, there’s little question while listening to True Love that Dokes falls squarely into the “cool” camp. Formerly a champion lindy hopper, he continues to get audiences dancing in his regular gig singing with the George Gee Big Band; he carries the same self-confidence from the ballroom to the boardroom, as the Chief Content Officer and President of Accuweather Network, following similarly successful tenures at Viacom and Marvel Entertainment.

When working with the world-class quartet on True Love, though, the executive suite is the furthest thing from Dokes’ mind. The album is the second in a planned trilogy, each of which pairs Dokes with a different frontline horn. The first was 2017’s Forever Reasons, his initial small group endeavor (following his big band debut, John Dokes Sings, George Gee Swings), which featured trombonist David Gibson with the same rhythm section as this release: pianist Steve Einerson (Eric Alexander, Eddie Henderson), bassist Alex Claffy (Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jimmy Cobb), and drummer Lawrence Leathers (Cécile McLorin Salvant, Aaron Diehl).

On True Love they’re joined by alto saxophonist Mark Gross (Delfeayo Marsalis, Dave Holland), whose sinuous tone is an ideal match for Dokes’ dulcet baritone. Their chemistry is immediately apparent on “A Sleepin’ Bee,” the opening track, calling to mind the playful back-and-forth between Nancy Wilson and Cannonball Adderley on their immortal 1961 rendition, which inspired Dokes to include the song here. The song’s lyric, by writer Truman Capote, also lends the album its title, as Dokes concludes the song by repeating the phrase like an echoing memory.

Tickets: hoodsmoke.brownpapertickets.com

****

Bridging both genres and generations with original music steeped in the history of its influences, Hood Smoke’s sonic narrative illustrates timeless stories using beautifully simple melodies set to a rhythmic foundation built firmly from the bass up.

Since the release of their debut album, Laid Up In Ordinary (2012), Chicago’s Hood Smoke has continued to narrow the gap between retro and modern sounds in a unique and sincere way.

The band is a tour de force whose past and present members have performed with Quincy Jones, Earth, Wind & Fire, Koko Taylor, Rhymefest, Nick Lowe, Chris Thile, and Umphrey’s Mcgee.

With their second album, Regular Neurotic (2014), the band began its collaboration with producer and engineer Anthony Gravino. The record’s anthem “Never Suffering” gained the band recognition from American Songwriter and the Chicago Sun-Times declared Hood Smoke a “must-see act.”

With their third release Rough Around The Hedges (2016), which Newcity described as “whip-smart jazz-funk-fusion” whose “lyrics are top-notch throughout,” Doherty proved his prolificacy as a composer and lyricist. 2016 also marked the band’s first national tour as they wooed audiences at large rock festivals and intimate jazz clubs, alike.

The band’s fourth album Cannonball Porch (2018) showcases Doherty’s vulnerable and melancholic voice on what he promises to be “the most simplistic, lyrically creative, and to the point” Hood Smoke album to date.
