Join special guest host Jeff Garlin (The Goldbergs and Curb Your Enthusiasm) as we celebrate Grammy nominees: 13-year-old piano prodigy Joey Alexander, Yellowjackets sax player Bob Mintzer, and legendary drummer Peter Erskine (Weather Report, Joni Mitchell). Also performing will be guest vocalist Carmen Lundy, and two-time Grammy nominee Patrice Rushen. Get a taste of the Grammys in person, and support The Jazz Bakery at the same time! This is a benefit concert for The Jazz Bakery's Performance Fund that allows us to present our Movable Feast concerts throughout the year.
13-year-old Joey Alexander has played at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and at the White House. He won the Grand Prix at the 2013 Master-Jam Fest and performed at the Montreal and Newport Jazz Festivals in 2015. He was a Grammy nominee last year as well as this year, and last year he performed live at the Premiere Ceremony, the pre-telecast ceremony at the Grammy Awards. Wynton Marsalis says of Joey Alexander“I love everything about his playing – his rhythm, his confidence, his understanding of the music.”
Saxophonist Bob Mintzer is a twenty six year member of the Grammy award winning Yellowjackets who also leads a Grammy winning Big Band, travels with his own Quartet, and plays with numerous bands globally. As an instrumentalist Bob has worked with Art Blakey, Jaco Pastorius, Sam Jones, Randy Brecker, Gil Evans, and The New York Philharmonic, among many others.
Drummer Peter Erskine has played with the Stan Kenton and Maynard Ferguson Big Bands, Weather Report, Steps Ahead, Joni Mitchell, Steely Dan, Diana Krall, Kenny Wheeler, Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Brecker Brothers, The Yellowjackets, Pat Metheny and Gary Burton, John Scofield, to name only a few.
One of the most attractive aspects of Carmen Lundy’s career is that she has created her own tone, style and delivery. February marks the release of Ms. Lundy's new recording Code Noir, which includes two-time Grammy nominee Patrice Rushen on piano.
