L.A.: CHAMBERS, HERBERT, & ELLIS AT THE GARDENIA

Chambers, Herbert, & Ellis will perform at THE GARDENIA (7066 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA - 323-467-7444) on Wednesday, October 3rd at 9:00 pm. Pierre Chambers, Lisa Herbert, and Mitch Ellis have struck a mother lode of unique and exhilarating musical material through exhuming, creatively re-working, and re-inventing works of legendary jazz artists through the nearly lost art of "vocalese" - assigning what would generally be considered instrumental riffs to the human voice. Their talents spring directly from their dads: bass player Paul Chambers played on and off with Miles Davis and John Coltrane in the '50s; bassist Mort Herbert toured with the Louis Armstrong All-Stars in the '50s and '60s; and guitarist Herb Ellis played with the Oscar Peterson trio for many years and established a very successful solo career spanning decades. Creating an impact recalling The Manhattan Transfer, the group's repertoire pays homage to the vocal treatments of Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross, many of which were themselves based on Ellington or Basie big band arrangements, and features expanded treatments of original vocalese and jazz harmonies in musical arrangements played, written, or made famous by, their own fathers. Ensconced at The Gardenia the first Wednesday of every month, with each show spanking new, they are becoming increasingly popular as word of mouth spreads ... and the "buzz" surrounding them is well-deserved. Piano support for this month's Halloween special is supplied by Richard Eames, with Tim Emmons on bass. Call for cover/minimum information.
