ZACH LAPIDUS QUINTET | HERBIE HANCOCK ELECTRIC TRIBUTE


 

 

 

 

 

 

7:30p • $12 | 9:30p • $10

 

 

Zach Lapidus – keyboards
Mark Buselli – trumpet
Rob Dixon – saxes
Joel Tucker – guitar
Brandon Meeks – bass
Greg Artry – drums

One of the top 5 pianists in the nation to reach the finals of the American Pianist Association’s piano competition in 2011, Zach and his cast of young lions are as adventurous as they are grounded in jazz classics. Borrowing from a range of influences we invite you to discover one of Indy’s musical secrets.

This group pays tribute to one of the most unique groups and times in jazz history, when Herbie Hancock opened up all possibilities, bringing in any style and every texture he could imagine. After splitting from Miles Davis’ band after it started going electric, Herbie went off in a different direction — while Miles was combining the structures, form, and harmony of jazz with the sounds of rock, Herbie’s new brand of music melded his brand of searching, experimental jazz with funk. Calling his new group the Mwandishi Sextet, Herbie proceeded to release three albums of new, completely original music, featuring smoldering funk grooves, spaced-out psychedelic textures, Fender Rhodes and synthesizers, and incredible interaction and improvisation.

JOE HENDERSON TRIBUTE BAND | ROB DIXON | SOPHIE FAUGHT | STEVE ALLEE

7:30 • $12 | 9:30p • $10

We’ve assembled this special band really because we love the music and spirit of Joe Henderson. Tenor saxophonist Rob Dixon and Sophie Faught explore the many side of Henderson’s vast hard-bop repertoire. Supported by the Steve Allee Trio we know this will be a show not to be missed.

About Joe…

Joe Henderson is proof that jazz can sell without watering down the music; it just takes creative marketing. Although his sound and style were virtually unchanged from the mid-’60s, Joe Henderson’s signing with Verve in 1992 was treated as a major news event by the label (even though he had already recorded many memorable sessions for other companies). His Verve recordings had easy-to-market themes (tributes to Billy Strayhorn, Miles Davis, and Antonio Carlos Jobim) and, as a result, he became a national celebrity and a constant poll winner while still sounding the same as when he was in obscurity in the 1970s.

The general feeling is that it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving jazz musician. After studying at Kentucky State College and Wayne State University, Joe Henderson played locally in Detroit before spending time in the military (1960-1962). He played briefly with Jack McDuff and then gained recognition for his work with Kenny Dorham (1962-1963), a veteran bop trumpeter who championed him and helped Henderson get signed to Blue Note. Henderson appeared on many Blue Note sessions both as a leader and as a sideman, spent 1964-1966 with Horace Silver’s Quintet, and during 1969-1970 was in Herbie Hancock’s band. From the start, he had a very distinctive sound and style which, although influenced a bit by both Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane, also contained a lot of brand new phrases and ideas. Henderson had long been able to improvise in both inside and outside settings, from hard bop to freeform. In the 1970s, he recorded frequently for Milestone and lived in San Francisco, but was somewhat taken for granted. The second half of the 1980s found him continuing his freelancing and teaching while recording for Blue Note, but it was when he hooked up with Verve that he suddenly became famous. Virtually all of his recordings are currently in print on CD, including a massive collection of his neglected (but generally rewarding) Milestone dates. On June 30, 2001, Joe Henderson passed away due to heart failure after a long battle with emphysema. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi
