Jazzfest review: Newport Jazz Festival: Now 60

June 25th, 2014

From Ottawa Citizen
By: Peter Hum

Jazzfest review: Newport Jazz Festival: Now 60

The all-star septet billed as Newport Jazz Festival: Now 60 provided a feel-good jazz experience for a TD Ottawa Jazz Festival crowd on Friday night.

Like the SFJAZZ Collective out of San Francisco, and the Monterey Quartet of a few years ago, the Newport group is a superband assembled to celebrate a jazz festival that has become an institution and, indeed, jazz itself.

But while the SFJAZZ group, for example, is a high-minded, ambitious endeavour that for years has staged tributes to jazz composers and commissioned of new music, the Newport band, which has united this year to mark the 60th anniversary of the seminal Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island, was more about having fun on stage and sharing that feeling with an audience, tackling a Thelonious Monk tune, a Tom Jobim tune, an Ornette Coleman and a few originals in the process.

Jazz Fest, Final Night: Ron reviews Newport Jazz Festival All Stars

June 29th, 2014

Jazz Fest, Final Night: Ron reviews Newport Jazz Festival All Stars, Stephanie Trick, and Scott Feiner & Pandeiro Jazz

Imagine Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Spider-Man all working together. That’s what it was like when the Newport Jazz Festival All Stars took the stage to celebrate the great festival’s 60th anniversary at Kilbourn Hall Saturday night.

There was trumpeter Randy Brecker, clarinetist-saxophonist Anat Cohen, singer Karrin Allyson, pianist Peter Martin, guitarist Mark Whitfield, bassist Larry Grenadier, and drummer Clarence Penn. Most of them had led groups at the XRIJF before; now they were a supergroup.

The configuration varied from full band to a beautiful guitar solo by Whitfield. Allyson performed a haunting rendition of “’Round Midnight” accompanied only by Grenadier. Every solo was excellent; Cohen’s and Brecker’s were outstanding.

The highpoint of the show came midway through when Penn introduced a tune with a riddle: What song was covered by Donna Summer, Grace Jones, Louis Armstrong, and Pavarotti? If you haven’t guessed, it’s “La Vie En Rose.”

The song, written in 1945, was the perfect vehicle for a tribute to the longevity of the Newport Festival. Cohen, who had been playing saxophone, picked up her clarinet and blew everyone away, only to be matched in a solo by Brecker. The result: the crowd went wild and gave the group a rare mid-set standing ovation.

At the end of the show, the group returned to the stage after the second standing ovation in a loose, anything-goes frame of mind. Allyson took over at the piano; Cohen and Martin danced. But that didn’t stop them from making more great music.

Three Cool Cats Make Up the Cohen Jazz Trifecta

June 11th, 2014

Three cool cats make up the Cohen jazz trifecta
By: Barry Davis

Members of bands that stay in business for a long time – and they are generally few and far between – often talk about having a sense of kinship. That includes the squabbles as well as the closeness and the shared creative nous.

Jazz trumpeter Avishai Cohen and his cohorts in this evening’s closing slot of this year’s Jazz at the Opera series certainly share a great deal of empathy, sympathy and, yes, even love. For Cohen’s principal collaborators in the 3 Cohens concert are sister Anat, who plays tenor saxophone and clarinet, and soprano saxophonist Yuval.

Each of the siblings has been busy forging successful solo careers for some years now. Avishai and Anat are long time New York residents, and all three attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Yuval relocated back here after experiencing some health-related issues – thankfully, all is well with him now – while the other two have continued working from their stateside bases, making forays over here and elsewhere around the world.
