Hush Point – January 13th, 2019


Hello dear listeners!

The Parlor Series at Dupuy’s Landing is back, and we are thrilled to return in 2019 with a joyful noise!

First up, please join us on Sunday, January 13th, at 3pm, when we will welcome Hush Point to the Parlor. These awesome jazz explorers will take us on a musical journey of improvised collaboration.

Hush Point 

Hush Point

Jeremy Udden – Alto Saxophone
John McNeil – Trumpet
Aryeh Kobrinsky – Bass
Anthony Pinciotti– Drums

“Setting the new standard for the pianoless jazz quartet.” (JAZZIZ)

Brooklyn’s post “cool jazz” quartet Hush Point exudes swing and lyricism while “delving into deeply interactive improvisation that doesn’t need to shout to be heard.”  (Peter Margasak, DOWNBEAT)  Three critically-acclaimed albums for Sunnyside Records establish the collectives personal brand of “dry and intimate and surprising music, volume cut in half, swing rhythm subtly stretched into more up-to-date grooves,…an extended experiment in careful improvising, using counterpoint to move quickly and unsentimentally toward the open spaces.” (Ben Ratliff, NEW YORK TIMES)

The band formed organically around sessions between veteran trumpeter John McNeil (Gerry Mulligan, Horace Silver) and saxophonist Jeremy Udden (Either/Orchestra, Bob Brookmeyer) in which the two explored the musical ideas of Brookmeyer and Jimmy Giuffre.  Bassist Aryeh Kobrinsky brought virtuosity and a penchant for collective improvisation, while drummer Anthony Pinciotti contributed a wealth of swing and deep interaction from his experience playing with Jim Hall, John Abercrombie, James Moody and countless other jazz legends.

A Hush Point performance is at once warm, inviting, challenging, and often humorous as they explore classic and original material that “doesn’t need to shout to be heard.”  (Peter Margasak, CHICAGO READER)
Please join us as Hush Point brings their musical genius to the Parlor. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Sunday 13 January, Hush Point

Doors at 2:30 PM, concert begins at 3:00 PM sharp.

April 15, 2018 – Ilusha

Hello dear listeners!

Please join us on Sunday, April 15th, at 3pm, when we are thrilled to welcome back Ilusha to the Parlor. His latest project will bring an intimate afternoon of voices and music that celebrate global truths through the unique elements of Georgian folk songs. 


Ilusha
Ilusha Tsinadze – voice, guitar
Stephanie Hemshrot – voice
Alex Kutubidze- voice
Chris Tordini – voice, upright bass

Ilusha Tsinadze is a singer, guitarist, composer, and arranger born in Tbilisi, Georgia. After studying jazz in college, his passion shifted to the music of his homeland. In 2011, Ilusha released his debut album, Deda Ena (Mother Tongue), which featured his own distinctly personal interpretations of Georgian folk songs along with compositions of his own. The music video for his song “Mokhevis Kalo Tinao” went viral in Georgia and has since won him wide acclaim and national fame in the country. He has performed with his Brooklyn-based band around the world, allowing audiences to experience his emotional renditions of Georgia’s beautiful and little-known musical traditions.
Please join us as Ilusha and his crew help us shake off the long cold winter and celebrate spring!

March 11, 2018 – Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet

Hello dear listeners!

Set your clocks forward and join us on Sunday, March 11th, at 3pm *. Due to unforseen circumstances Hush Point will not be performing, but we will welcome Jeremey Udden and his Trio/Quartet to the parlor. These awesome jazz explorers will take us on a musical journey of improvised collaboration.

Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet 

Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet

Jeremy Udden – Saxophone
Steve Cardenas – Guitar
Aryeh Kobrinsky– Bass
Mark Ferber – Drums

“With his beautiful, round soprano tone, the saxophonist Udden lends a haunting sheen to tunes spanning the soothingly melodic to the jaggedly free.”
– MODERN DRUMMER

“although he’s a super jazz saxophonist, [Udden] openly embraces the rock, folk, and country sounds he heard in his youth… More often than not, Udden’s music opts for a more gentle, almost pastoral quality–although it retains a muscle and grit to balance the lyric softness.  The more difficult Udden’s music becomes to classify, the better it seems to get.”
– DOWNBEAT
Please join us as The Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet bring their musical genius to the Parlor for an outstanding afternoon of inspiration.
Sunday 11 March, Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet

Doors at 2:30 PM, concert begins at 3:00 PM* sharp.

January 14, 2018 – Michael Blake Quartet

Hello dear listeners!

Happy New Year! Here’s to all the best for 2018! We hope you can join us to get it started on a good foot with –

The Michael Blake Quartet 

Michael Blake Quartet

Michael Blake – Saxophone
Steve Cardenas – Guitar
Ben Allison – Bass
Kenny Wollesen – Drums

Born in Montreal, Canada and raised in Vancouver, Michael Blake has made New York City his home, where he has released music with abounding originality and vision for 30 years. Michael Blake actively tours around the world and teaches in the city. As a composer his creative output is constantly in flux. The fifteen albums to his name offer listeners a huge variety of music. 2016 was a significant year for him with his choice to release three divergent albums: Fulfillment, Transmissions and Red Hook Soul. Blake also toured the US west coast, performed in Brazil and taught in Mexico.

Guitarist Steve Cardenas has regularly performed with such diverse artists as Paul McCandless of the group Oregon, Mark Isham and Jeff Beal, as well as Madeleine Peyroux and Norah Jones. Steve was a longstanding member of the Paul Motian Octet, the Charlie Haden Liberation Music Orchestra, as well as Joey Baron‘s band, Killer Joey. Steve is currently a member of the Steve Swallow Quintet, Ben Allison Band, Jon Cowherd‘s Mercy Project and John Patitucci‘s Electric Guitar Quartet.

Bassist/composer Ben Allison is known for his inspired arrangements, inventive grooves and hummable melodies. Ben draws from the jazz tradition and a range of influences from rock and folk to 20th century classical and world music traditions, seamlessly blending them into a cinematic, cohesive whole.

Drummer Kenny Wollesen has worked with everyone from Tom Waits to Bill Frisell. He is the backbone of dozens of bands including the undefinable Sex Mob. He has also led a marching band and collaborated with Blake in their ground breaking quartet Slow Poke.

Please join us as Michael and his quartet bring their musical genius to the Parlor for an outstanding afternoon of inspiration.
