The Estate is excited to welcome Jonathan Greenstein back to the Estate stage for an evening of world class jazz.

Inspired as much by Lester Young as he is by Robert Glasper, saxophonist / composer Jonathan Greenstein's soft voice is as passionate as it is emotional, as corporal as it is a dream.

"Delicate and haunting"
"It's intelligent in its complexity... it's intelligent in its accessibility" - archaic pop

"A rich and inviting tone" - Jazzweekly

"Here's a vision we can appreciate" - the Midwest record

Arriving at a distinctive sound that’s relevant to the wider music audience, Greenstein’s beat emphasizes song, lyricism and space. It is soulfully sophisticated, a sound between nostalgia and forward motion. For Greenstein, it’s bigger than Jazz, and he’s on a mission to bring the people with him.

"Real feeling of gravitas, beauty and depth... Truly mesmerizing" - Mike Sims, A Slice Of Jazz

"A great saxophonist ... Contemporary jazz at its best" - Ruth Fisher, Notes & Tones

Jonathan's new EP - Vol 2 is out now and made Spotify's "State of Jazz" playlist on its first weekend. With 4 originals and a cover of James Blake's "Retrograde", it offers a 20 minute musical adventure filled with thought, emotion and inspiration.

“Guitarist-composer Jason Seed is at home in many branches of music, including jazz, rock and classical. With In the Gallery, he turns to lilting chamber music with the help of Milwaukee and Chicago symphony orchestra members Dan Armstrong, Helen Reich, Glenn Asch, and Scott Tisdel. The rhythms can evoke Argentina’s Astor Piazzolla or the pulse of cool-era jazz, and the melodies are soft as a cat’s paw and just as capable of sharp surprise.”

Jeff Davis "Tone Collector"

Saturday March 10th - 8:00pm - Saturday March 10th - 11:00pm

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

TONE COLLECTOR:
Jeff Davis - drums; Tony Malaby - saxophones; Eivind Opsvik - bass; special guest Russ Johnson - trumpet.

Tone Collector, with tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby, bassist Eivind Opsvik and drummer Jeff Davis, is a formidable group. Recorded live at the Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm, Sweden over two nights, it is an enthralling document of an unfettered trio exploring their more outré side. Tone Collector's sonic exploration takes precedent over pre-written compositional aesthetics and the trio proves they are astute listeners.
----
From the opening notes of "Never Removed From Box" one can tell that this is a trio with experience on the band stand. Quickly dispensing with the timbral experimentation that introduces the piece, the rhythm section launches headlong into a scorching free-bop pulse with Malaby building a turbulent tenor solo that is far more intense and discordant than anything he's played on Opsvik's solo records. But this explosive tantrum is quickly brought into perspective by the following cut, written by Opsvik, the mysterious and resonant "Swedish Summer." With its bowed bass drones and pedal points, the piece rises from barely audible to climactic cry, before subsiding back into the ether. Easily capable of overpowering waves of sound, the trio generally opts for a more balanced approach.

Ryan Meisel’s performances express the story of his lifelong musical journey through song. Thought provoking, spirited, and idiosyncratic, audiences are drawn into his shows through storytelling, as they relate to the passion on display and see pieces of themselves in the music.
Ryan’s brand of fiery saxophone playing leads his group to take chances while committing to push the envelope of the group’s improvisational limits. Meisel is dedicated to finding his own authentic style within the genres of Swing, Hard Bop, and Contemporary Jazz.
Meisel’s path to jazz was laid through early influences that included Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago jam sessions and on the bandstand mentorship with Clarinetist Chuck Hedges, study with legendary bassist Richard Davis, NIU’s Ron Carter, Steve Duke, and composition study with Les Thimmig and Rodrigo Villanueva.

Since arriving in New York in the early 1990s, reed player Chris Speed has been one of the most vital improvising musicians on the scene. His work has always ranged widely, moving from a jazz base out through various forms of folk, classical and rock music.

With the formation of this excellent trio with drummer Dave King (The Bad Plus) and bassist Chris Tordini he's sort of reversed direction. The Chris Speed Trio is a group returning from other explorations to work deep within the jazz tradition, bringing everything else they've learned back in.

What is most compelling about this music is the incorporation of early jazz styles in a way that is direct and deeply felt. The music is joyful and generous and Speed has an uncanny knack for coming up with tunes that can create a whole world of emotions and formal possibilities behind an often catchy melodic surface. The trio released their latest album, 'Platinum on Tap', on August 18, 2017 on Intakt Records.

Legendary bassist and two-time Grammy Award winner EDDIE GOMEZ has been on the cutting edge of music for over four decades. His impressive resumé includes performances with jazz giants such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Evans, Gerry Mulligan and Benny Goodman. Eddies unique sound and style can be heard on many Grammy winning records as well as on hundreds of recordings spanning the worlds of jazz, classical, Latin jazz, rhythm & blues, popular and contemporary music.

Born in 1944 in Santurce, Puerto Rico, Eddie moved to New York City with his family at an early age. His love of music led him to the double bass as a precocious 11-year old student in the public school system. Two years later he was accepted to the High School of Music and Art and soon began private studies with the great double bass teacher Fred Zimmerman. During these years, he performed with many professional dance bands and was a member of the Newport Youth Band led by Marshall Brown. By 18, he had performed with such jazz luminaries as Buck Clayton, Lionel Hampton, Marian McPartland and Paul Bley.

Eddie continued his studies at the Juilliard School of Music, where his contemporaries included Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, James Levine, Itzak Perlman, Paula Robinson and Gary Karr. By the end of his third year of school, he dreamed of a career as a performing jazz musician. Later that summer he joined with Gary McFarland and soon after the Gerry Mulligan Quintet.

In the spring of 1966, both Mulligans group (with Eddie on bass) and the Bill Evans Trio performed for a week at the famed Village Vanguard. That week at the Vanguard changed Eddies life forever. When Bill Evans heard the young phenom, he practically hired him on the spot. Bill called a few weeks later and Eddies dream had been realized. At age 21, he was the bassist with the Bill Evans Trio and rose quickly to fame. TIME magazine
declared in its review of the trios first recording, Eddie Gomez has the world on his strings.

Joining the Bill Evans Trio was a turning point in Eddies career. He had arrived in a big way and the jazz community took notice. For 11 years, Eddie played an integral role in the Bill Evans Trios sound and evolution. This period of vast artistic growth with Bill Evans included performances throughout the United States, Europe, South America and Asia, as well as dozens of recordings two of which won Grammy Awards. During this time, Eddie also realized another dream performing on many occasions with the great Miles Davis, in the Davis quintet that also featured Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Tony Williams.

In 1977, Eddie left the Evans Trio to explore new musical territory. For the next decade, he performed in many diverse musical contexts, working with Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, George Benson, McCoy Tyner, Hank Jones, Nancy Wilson, Tanya Maria, the All Star groups Steps Ahead and New Directionsand many others, as well as on Grammy-winning recordings with Chick Corea.

In the classical music world, Eddie has been a guest artist with
The Kronos Quartet, Tashi Ensemble, Japanese marimbist Mika Yoshida and clarinetist Richard Stoltzman. His recordings with Stoltzman have included Begin Sweet World and most recently The Goldberg Variations and other pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach. At Carnegie Recital Hall, Eddie premiered a musical piece written specifically for him by William Thomas McKinley.

In popular music, Eddie has performed and recorded with artists such as Bobby Darin, Tim Hardin, Carly Simon, Art Garfunkel, Mark Knoffler, Michael Franks, Judy Collins and Jennifer Holliday. He has also been a member of The Gadd Gang, Steve Gadds All Star R&B/jazz band.

Today, Eddie tours and records with his own group which he formed in 1992 with pianist Stefan Karlsson and legendary drummer Jimmy Cobb. The groups recordings include Live in Japan, Dedication and Uptown Music. He composes for his own projects as well as for film and television most notably for the prize-winning William Steig animation, The Amazing Bone.

Eddies recordings as a leader include Next Future, Outlaws, Live in Moscow, Street Smart, Power Play, Discovery, Gomez, Down Stretch, Whats New at F, Palermo and Trio. The recordings feature guest artists including Michael Brecker, Richard Tee, Randy Brecker, Al Foster, Steve Gadd, Chick Corea, Jeremy Steig, Jack McDuff and John Abercrombie. His recordings co-led with pianist Mark Kramer include Entropy, Fiddler on the Roof and Art of the Heart.

In 2006, his DVD An Evening with Eddie Gomez was released with Eddie and Mark Kramer performing and lecturing on the intricacies and dynamics of improvisation.
