Saxophonist Dave Liebman, a 2010 "NEA Jazz Master," learned directly from jazz icons, spending extensive periods as a member of groups led by Miles Davis and Elvin Jones. As a leader, Liebman has been associated since 1970 with a succession of extraordinary groups from Open Sky Trio to Lookout Farm to Quest, each of which has framed a distinct phase of his musical evolution. Master bassist Buster Williams is an empathetic sideman known for his subtle sense of swing. He began his professional career in 1960 with saxophonist Jimmy Heath, going on to play with jazz legends Miles Davis, Sarah Vaughan, Herbie Hancock, Mary Lou Williams, Chet Baker, Dexter Gordon and many others. Legendary drummer Billy Hart has been a fixture on the jazz scene for over fifty years, performing and recording along the way with jazz legends Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, Herbie Hancock, Stan Getz and Miles Davis. Newest addition to the group, pianist Billy Childs, apprenticed with jazz legends Freddie Hubbard and J.J. Johnson in the 1970s and 80s before striking out on a solo career that would find him deftly melding the worlds of jazz and classical music and earning 10 Grammy nominations and 3 Grammy awards.

In the history of Jazz music, there is only one bandleader that has the distinction of having his orchestra still performing sold out concerts all over the world, with members personally chosen by him, for nearly 30 years after his passing.

The Count Basie Orchestra has won every respected jazz poll in the world at least once, won 18 Grammy Awards, performed for Kings, Queens, and other world Royalty, appeared in several movies, television shows, at every major jazz festival and concert hall in the world. Some of the greatest soloists, composers, arrangers, and vocalists in jazz history such as Lester Young, Billie Holiday, Frank Foster, Thad Jones, Sonny Payne, Freddie Green, Snooky Young, Frank Wess, and Joe Williams, became international stars once they began working with the legendary Count Basie Orchestra. This great 18 member orchestra, today directed by Scotty Barnhart, is still continuing the excellent history started by Basie of stomping and shouting the blues, as well as refining those musical particulars that allow for the deepest and most moving of swing.

TORONTO: BRIAN DE LIMA QUARTET AT THE JAZZ BISTRO

Jazz pianist Brian de Lima will perform at THE JAZZ BISTRO (251 Victoria Street, Toronto, ONT, CA - 416-363-5299) on Thursday through Saturday, July 31st through August 2nd at 8:00 pm. He is joined by Jake Wilkinson on Trumpet, Lee Wallace on Guitar and Jon Meyer on Bass To anyone familiar with the music of Brian de Lima, two things are very clear. The first is that he has dedicated a substantial amount of time to the study of the music of the masters; the second, for which the first is undoubtedly a prerequisite, is that he has cultivated a unique and mature sound, both as a composer and a performer. Born in Nairobi, Kenya to Goan parents (Goa is a state on India's west coast that was colonized by Portugal), Brian relocated with his family to Toronto while still an infant. From his earliest days, he enjoyed a steady diet of jazz • his father, in addition to possessing great talents in the visual arts, is a proficient jazz guitarist with a special affinity for the music of Wes Montgomery. Brian began playing the piano at the age of three - with his father - before starting private studies at five (his first teacher was a pupil of Daisy Peterson, the sister and teacher of Oscar Peterson). Jazz was a focus from the very beginning. Brian moved on to study with Estonian concert pianist Armas Meiste, who introduced him to the music of Bud Powell and in 1993, he received a full scholarship to Humber College of the Arts. Still not satisfied and typifying the artist on his unending quest to enhance his creative capacity, Brian sought out master bebop educator and pianist Barry Harris. Originators such as Art Tatum, Teddy Wilson, Errol Garner, Earl Hines, Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke and Nat Cole have now gained priority on Brian`s overall sound, including the exploration of the masters of stride piano and impressionism. In 2003 Brian started Dementia Five, a band committed to playing and exploring the music of traditional Bebop and Swing. The debut recording, INhER DEMONS has already received accolades from such masters as Barry Harris, Benny Green and Bob Mover. There is a $15 cover.

Saxophonist Dave Liebman, a 2010 "NEA Jazz Master," learned directly from jazz icons, spending extensive periods as a member of groups led by Miles Davis and Elvin Jones. As a leader, Liebman has been associated since 1970 with a succession of extraordinary groups from Open Sky Trio to Lookout Farm to Quest, each of which has framed a distinct phase of his musical evolution. Master bassist Buster Williams is an empathetic sideman known for his subtle sense of swing. He began his professional career in 1960 with saxophonist Jimmy Heath, going on to play with jazz legends Miles Davis, Sarah Vaughan, Herbie Hancock, Mary Lou Williams, Chet Baker, Dexter Gordon and many others. Legendary drummer Billy Hart has been a fixture on the jazz scene for over fifty years, performing and recording along the way with jazz legends Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, Herbie Hancock, Stan Getz and Miles Davis. Newest addition to the group, pianist Billy Childs, apprenticed with jazz legends Freddie Hubbard and J.J.

The Count Basie Orchestra has won every respected jazz poll in the world at least once, won 18 Grammy Awards, performed for Kings, Queens, and other world Royalty, appeared in several movies, television shows, at every major jazz festival and concert hall in the world. Some of the greatest soloists, composers, arrangers, and vocalists in jazz history such as Lester Young, Billie Holiday, Frank Foster, Thad Jones, Sonny Payne, Freddie Green, Snooky Young, Frank Wess, and Joe Williams, became international stars once they began working with the legendary Count Basie Orchestra. This great 18 member orchestra, today directed by Scotty Barnhart, is still continuing the excellent history started by Basie of stomping and shouting the blues, as well as refining those musical particulars that allow for the deepest and most moving of swing.

TORONTO: BRIAN DE LIMA QUARTET AT THE JAZZ BISTRO

Jazz pianist Brian de Lima will perform at THE JAZZ BISTRO (251 Victoria Street, Toronto, ONT, CA - 416-363-5299) on Thursday through Saturday, July 31st through August 2nd at 8:00 pm. He is joined by Jake Wilkinson on Trumpet, Lee Wallace on Guitar and Jon Meyer on Bass To anyone familiar with the music of Brian de Lima, two things are very clear. The first is that he has dedicated a substantial amount of time to the study of the music of the masters; the second, for which the first is undoubtedly a prerequisite, is that he has cultivated a unique and mature sound, both as a composer and a performer. Born in Nairobi, Kenya to Goan parents (Goa is a state on India's west coast that was colonized by Portugal), Brian relocated with his family to Toronto while still an infant. From his earliest days, he enjoyed a steady diet of jazz • his father, in addition to possessing great talents in the visual arts, is a proficient jazz guitarist with a special affinity for the music of Wes Montgomery. Brian began playing the piano at the age of three - with his father - before starting private studies at five (his first teacher was a pupil of Daisy Peterson, the sister and teacher of Oscar Peterson). Jazz was a focus from the very beginning. Brian moved on to study with Estonian concert pianist Armas Meiste, who introduced him to the music of Bud Powell and in 1993, he received a full scholarship to Humber College of the Arts. Still not satisfied and typifying the artist on his unending quest to enhance his creative capacity, Brian sought out master bebop educator and pianist Barry Harris. Originators such as Art Tatum, Teddy Wilson, Errol Garner, Earl Hines, Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke and Nat Cole have now gained priority on Brian`s overall sound, including the exploration of the masters of stride piano and impressionism. In 2003 Brian started Dementia Five, a band committed to playing and exploring the music of traditional Bebop and Swing. The debut recording, INhER DEMONS has already received accolades from such masters as Barry Harris, Benny Green and Bob Mover. There is a $15 cover.

Towards the end of that decade, she's replacing Diane Keaton in Hair, and a few years later she's taking home a Best Supporting Actress Tony Award for her role of Lutibelle in Purlie. Fast forward to the R&B charts in the middle of the 1980's and her name is liberally dotting the page while also surfacing on the ballot for a Grammy nomination: "Best Rock Performance, Female" for "Read My Lips."

A funny thing happened on the way to Sao Paulo: the exciting young Brazilian group Choro das 3 jammed with 7-string guitar master Howard Alden and innovative vocalist Jeanne Gies. The result: musical magic, a unique collaboration of genres never before heard on either continent, and a mutual commitment to record and perform together across the globe. Choro is a 100 year old Brazilian music that gave rise to Samba and Bossa Nova. Sisters Corina, Lia, and Elisa put their own spin on this traditional style with a variety of string and wind instruments; their father Eduardo provides a fiery percussive accompaniment on the pandeiro. Unite this group with the freedom of expression exemplified by seasoned jazz players such as Gies and Alden, and the result is nothing short of electrifying. Howard Alden is consistently recognized as an artist of astonishing virtuosity and originality. He is known for the soundtrack of the Woody Allen movie 'Sweet and Lowdown', and has numerous recordings with jazz legends such as Benny Carter, Flip Phillips, Dizzy Gillespie and George Van Eps. Jeanne Gies is recognized for her full-bodied, emotionally expressive voice and distinctive phrasing. She has performed and recorded with a stunning array of jazz greats, and is increasingly lauded for her original compositions worldwide. There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

James Brandon Lewis will hold his "Divine Travels" CD Release Celebration at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Thursday, July 31st at 6:00 pm.

He is joined by Jake Wilkinson on Trumpet, Lee Wallace on Guitar and Jon Meyer on Bass To anyone familiar with the music of Brian de Lima, two things are very clear. The first is that he has dedicated a substantial amount of time to the study of the music of the masters; the second, for which the first is undoubtedly a prerequisite, is that he has cultivated a unique and mature sound, both as a composer and a performer. Born in Nairobi, Kenya to Goan parents (Goa is a state on India's west coast that was colonized by Portugal), Brian relocated with his family to Toronto while still an infant. From his earliest days, he enjoyed a steady diet of jazz • his father, in addition to possessing great talents in the visual arts, is a proficient jazz guitarist with a special affinity for the music of Wes Montgomery. Brian began playing the piano at the age of three - with his father - before starting private studies at five (his first teacher was a pupil of Daisy Peterson, the sister and teacher of Oscar Peterson). Jazz was a focus from the very beginning. Brian moved on to study with Estonian concert pianist Armas Meiste, who introduced him to the music of Bud Powell and in 1993, he received a full scholarship to Humber College of the Arts. Still not satisfied and typifying the artist on his unending quest to enhance his creative capacity, Brian sought out master bebop educator and pianist Barry Harris. Originators such as Art Tatum, Teddy Wilson, Errol Garner, Earl Hines, Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke and Nat Cole have now gained priority on Brian`s overall sound, including the exploration of the masters of stride piano and impressionism. In 2003 Brian started Dementia Five, a band committed to playing and exploring the music of traditional Bebop and Swing. The debut recording, INhER DEMONS has already received accolades from such masters as Barry Harris, Benny Green and Bob Mover. There is a $15 cover.

The fascinating, eclectic mix of extraordinary songwriters on this album, like Dorothy Fields, Paul McCartney, Fred Hersch and Joni Mitchell, unwittingly collaborated on this project as the song springboard for what these two artists wished to express.
