RONI BEN-HUR

With special guests George Cables on piano and Victor Lewis on drums.

Jazz guitarist Roni Ben-Hur has earned a sterling reputation as a musician and educator, renowned for his golden tone, improvisational brilliance, compositional lyricism and ability to charm peers, students and listeners alike. Eminent jazz critic Gary Giddins wrote in the Village Voice: "A limber and inventive guitarist, Ben-Hur keeps the modernist flame alive and pure, with a low flame burning in every note... [He's] a guitarist who knows the changes and his own mind."

Jay Clayton/John Di Martino/Houston Person

Jay Clayton is an internationally acclaimed vocalist, composer, and educator, whose work boldly spans the terrain between jazz and new music. In 1963 she began her career performing the standards on the vibrant New York music scene. However, she quickly became a prominent part of the free jazz movement. Her work in these two worlds led to the development of a highly personal, wordless vocabulary later enhanced by her innovative use of electronics. Video Clip

EARL KLUGH

Since Klugh released his inaugural album in 1976, the Detroit-born master of the acoustic-classical guitar has become one of the most imitated icons of the instrument, issued dozens of discs, 23 of which have been on Billboard’s top-10 list of jazz albums and 5 that made it to the No. 1 slot. During that time, Klugh’s recordings also received 12 GRAMMY® nominations (the latest of which was for his 2008 CD The Spice of Life) – and his collaboration with pianist Bob James, One on One, walked away with the 1980 GRAMMY® Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

BILL BANFIELD AND JAZZ URBANE with Special guest Tia Fuller

"...Jazz Urbane might then be considered deep breathing. It grows from Banfield’s belief that popular music need not be infantilized to be broadly appealing, and that jazz need not be mystified to be serious. "...One final point: Is Jazz Urbane urbane? My dictionary defines the word as 'reflecting elegance, sophistication…especially in expression,' which means that Bill Banfield’s talent for creating music and 'a vibrant new band'.. is only exceeded by his accuracy in naming his ensemble". - Bob Blumenthal
