Tuesday, 3/15 at Bobby McGee’s 7:00 – 10:00
Laurie O’Bordonaro, vocals Michael T. Jones, piano Sabu O’Adeyola, bass Daniel Patrick O’Hull, drum set
The goal of a mature soloist is to tell his story melodically, to render her improvisation lyrically, to sing through the instrument. And we do have a lyrical soloist this week in Michael T. Jones. But we also have a singer. But not just any singer… We have a musician who sings. True to herself and to her art, Laurie is joyful, generous, and loyal. And with a hard bop sense of swing, she reveals herself in every heartfelt lyric. Please join us to celebrate your inner Irish this Tuesday at Bobby McGee’s. Find us in the Maple Ridge Plaza, Maple & Sweet Home Roads. Jyl, Jennifer, steady Billy & quiet Mike – good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.

Do not miss…
Sunday, 1/30/2011 at The Albright-Knox Art Gallery Auditorium 3:00 p.m.
The Robert Glasper Trio
Robert Glasper, piano Derrock Hodge, bass Mark Colenberg, drums
The highly-acclaimed Robert Glasper Trio will make their first area appearance as part of the 2010–2011 Hunt Real Estate Art of Jazz Series at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery on Sunday, March 20, at 3 pm in the Gallery’s Auditorium. The concert will be preceeded at 2 pm with a pre-concert conversation “The Future Is Now: Where Is Jazz Headed?” with series producer Bruce Eaton.
With a sound all his own, Blue Note recording artist and Grammy nominee Robert Glasper is truly a jazz pianist for the twenty-first century, successfully blending the free-flow of a classic trio with time-bending hip-hop rhythms. While drawing frequent comparisons to Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, and a ”21st century incarnation of Thelonious Monk” (Financial Times UK) for his work as a leader and as a sideman with Terence Blanchard and Christian McBride, Glasper has collaborated extensively with hip-hop and neo-soul icons like The Roots, J Dilla, Maxwell, Q-Tip, and Kanye West. The result is music that is “direct, forceful, inventive, and accessible without pandering” (New York). Hailing a recent performance Britain’s Jazzwise magazine recounted, “Glasper’s unfurling way with melody and improvisational prowess set a mesmerising atmosphere…the band responding to a rapt audience with incredible levels of interactivity and dynamic drama.”
Tickets are $25 for Albright-Knox Art Gallery Members and $29 for non-members, and can be purchased at the Gallery’s Admissions Desk or online at www.albrightknox.org/artofjazz. The remaining performance this season is the Pete Malinverni Trio with Lee Hudson and Elliot Zigmund on Saturday, May 7, 2011, at 8:00.
