    “One of the top jazz pianists in the world.” – The Los Angeles Times “The most lyrical piano player of our time.” – Jazz Weekly Honored by The National Endowment for the Arts as a 2010 Jazz Master, pianist Kenny Barron has an unmatched ability to mesmerize audiences with his elegant playing, sensitive melodies and infectious rhythms. As a teenager, he started playing professionally with Mel Melvin’s orchestra. While still in high school. Kenny worked with drummer Philly Joe Jones and at age 19, he moved to New York City and freelanced with Roy Haynes, Lee Morgan and James Moody, after the tenor saxophonist heard him play at the Five Spot. Upon Moody’s recommendation Dizzy Gillespie hired Barron in 1962 without even hearing him play a note. It was in Dizzy’s band where Kenny developed an appreciation for Latin and Caribbean rhythms. After five years with Dizzy, Barron played with Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, Milt Jackson, and Buddy Rich. The early seventies found Kenny working with Yusef Lateef who Kenny credits as a key influence in his art for improvisation. In 1974, Kenny recorded his first album as a leader; this was to be the first in over 40 recordings (and still counting!) as a leader. Come see the Kenny Barron Trio with David Wong on bass and Savannah Harris on drums at the Jazz Forum!

    Little Radical Theatrics (Fatima Viegas, Executive Producer) is proud to present its Summer 2018 musical, 'Ragtime'! In an effort to truly live up to its name, Little Radical Theatrics will be bringing to Westchester a wildly theatrical, moving, and innovative retelling of one of musical theater's most celebrated contemporary classics, RAGTIME. Set in turn-of-the-20th-century New York, a trifecta of inspiring tales are woven together -- of an upper-class wife who unexpectedly becomes a single mother, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring, young Harlem musician -- united by their courage, compassion, and belief in the promise of the future, as the original melting pot is on the verge of boiling over. Together they confront the timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. This beautiful production is appropriate for all ages! Directed by Michael Mirra, Musical Direction by Chris Piro, Choreographed by Erin Pryor Starring Markiss Robert as Coalhouse Walker Jr, Rantea Thompson as Sarah, Reanna Adelstein as Mother, Michael Adelstein as Tateh, Kenneth Skjeveland as Father, Sam Rodd as Younger Brother, Jeffrey Rohr as Little Boy, Julia Ravenna as Little Girl, Jeffrey Rossman as Grandfather, Matthew Walters-Bowens as Booker T Washington, Stephanie Lourenco Viegas as Emma Goldman,Tamara Hayes as Evelyn Nesbit, Dom Ramos as Harry Houdini, Scott Harris as Henry Ford, Mykaela Copeland as Sarah's Friend, James Maguire as JP Morgan, Andrew Skjeveland as Willie Conklin Featuring Victorious Colleymore, Matthew Cooley as Coalhouse's Men and Others Joe Kelleher, Mary Eames, Taylor Quinn, Brenda Schoenfeld, and Kira Skjeveland as Citizens of New Rochelle and Others Dana Brown, Diana Hunt, Sydney Jackson as Harlem Women and Others Carmen Dyer-Glaser, Diego Dyer-Glaser, Maggie Lockwood, Miranda Miller, Alice O'Connell, Valentina Rubio, Veronica Rubio, and Justin Sanchez as Immigrant Ensemble and Others "Ragtime" runs July 20th at 7 PM, July 21st at 2 and 7:30 PM and July 22nd at 3 PM at The Grinton Will Library 1500 Central Park Ave Yonkers NY.

    Toots is one of the true architects of reggae – so much so that “Do the Reggay,” a 1968 single by Toots and his group, the Maytals, is credited with giving the genre its name. Classic songs written and recorded by Toots and the Maytals have been covered by the likes of the Clash and the Specials, and the group was featured in reggae’s greatest breakthrough event – “The Harder They Come,” the 1972 film that became an international sensation. The all-star guests on TRUE LOVE range from legends like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt to younger stars including No Doubt, the Roots, and Phish’s Trey Anastasio. The caliber of these collaborators reveals the impact that Toots has had on several generations of rockers and rappers, while appearances from reggae icons Bunny Wailer and Marcia Griffiths show the respect granted to the man who might be the music’s greatest living vocalist. At the heart of it all is that voice – drenched in soul, rooted in gospel, and still breathtakingly powerful after almost four decades in the spotlight. Victory's music is a fusion between Soul music and Folk Music. Whether Victory is performing classics or original compositions, she has a way of tailoring each song with her voice and guitar to fit her unique style. Some people say that Victory is in the lane of Tracy Chapman, Roberta Flack, and Nina Simone. But beyond those three, Victory brings an entirely new youthful element to the music world, an indescribable spiritual depth mixed with her youthful interpretation of sound influencing her artistic expressions. Moreover Victory colors a lot of her musical arrangements with rich jazz chords as she is rooted and grounded in Jazz tradition.

    The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra delivers the authentic big band sound of the swing era’s iconic bandleader. Glenn Miller launched his band – the one that lives on today – in March 1938. The Glenn Miller Orchestra has been a “hit” ever since. Today, the 18 member ensemble continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries, like “Moonlight Serenade,” “Little Brown Jug” and “Chattanooga Choo Choo.” Additionally, it also plays some more modern selections arranged and performed in the Miller style and sound. Just as it was in Glenn’s day, the Glenn Miller Orchestra today is still the most sought after Big Band in the world.

    This event will have a reserved seated Orchestra, Loge, and Balcony. Standing room is in the rear of the orchestra behind the last row of seats. 18 & over unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Beth Hart is on fire. Right now, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter is riding a creative tidal wave, firing out acclaimed albums, hooking up with the biggest names in music and rocking the house each night with that celebrated burnt-honey voice. In 2016, the headline news is Beth’s latest album, Fire On The Floor, a release that even this fiercely self-critical artist describes as “pretty frickin’ good.” But let’s not forget the backstory that brought her here… The Blues Magazine once dubbed Beth Hart “the ultimate female rock star”, and there’s no doubt that her two-decade career is the ultimate thrill-ride. Born in Los Angeles, she released a fistful of hit albums through the ’90s, then reignited in the post-millennium as both a solo artist and the head-turning vocalist for guitar heroes like Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck and Slash. “Extraordinary,” wrote The Times of her once-a-generation voice box, while The Guardian praised her “daring, brooding and angry” performances. But it’s in recent times that Beth has truly blossomed. In April 2015, she released Better Than Home, a critical and commercial smash that topped the iTunes Blues Chart and was crowned #4 Best Blues Album Of The Year by Mojo magazine. The release also reached #1 in the Dutch charts and helped Beth to fill Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall with 5,500 fans (her largest club show to date). “Oh, that was so good, man,” she reflects. “I love Holland. They’ve been really good to me.” The US market has embraced her, too, with Beth packing ever-larger venues in major cities on the Better Than Home tour – including Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium – and receiving a nomination from the American Blues Foundation in the category of Contemporary Blues Female Artist. “It’s unbelievable,” she admits. “This last tour, we were playing much bigger houses than I’d ever played in the States – and they were sold-out.” Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, Beth’s rocketing UK profile has never been higher. Recent years have seen auspicious headline sets at the Royal Albert Hall and the Barbican (not to mention the historic Hampton Court Palace with Joe Bonamassa), and in December 2015, she chalked up another first with a spot on Jools Holland’s legendary annual Hootenanny. Bringing in the New Year with a soulful take on Tell Her You Belong To Me and Nutbush City Limits alongside long-time...

    There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it's played in service to an entire genre. Utter the phrase "young blues guitarist" within earshot of anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name they are most likely to respond with will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd. The Louisiana born axeman and songsmith has been selling millions of albums, throwing singles into the Top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens. He met Stevie Ray Vaughan at 7, shared the stage with New Orleans legend Bryan Lee at 13. As an adult, he continues to create genre-defining blues-infused rock n' roll. "I get up on stage every night to play my heart out and to try to turn people on their ear, man. I want to bring light into people's lives with my music. If I can make people feel good for an hour and a half to two hours and forget about whatever might be stressing them out, then I'm doing my job." -Kenny Wayne Shepherd Beth Hart is on fire.

    “As a swinging romantic balladeer, Freddy Cole has a special position in the pantheon of contemporary American music. Through his work, integrity assumes its artistic identity in terms of pace, character and heart.” – Stanley Crouch “If you quiet your thoughts and really listen, Freddy Cole will open the door to your heart with a key that you did not even know existed.” – Ruth Brown “Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing… he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.”- The New York Times Three-time Grammy nominee Freddy Cole is a singer/pianist and younger brother to Nat King Cole. While there are certain unmistakable similarities in timbre to his brother, he has a unique voice and personality. His vocals – suave, elegant, formidable, sometimes spoken and articulate – make him the most respected lyrical storyteller in jazz. Cole’s career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America’s homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own.

Glen Hansard Marking his third solo album, singer-song-writer Glen Hansard will release Between Two Shores on January 19, 2018 via Anti-. Following up 2015’s GRAMMY nominated Didn’t He Ramble, and his 2012 solo debut Rhythm and Repose, the ten-track collection was produced by Hansard himself for the first time. The culmination of more than six years of writing and recording, Between Two Shores came together in only a matter of weeks. This past March, Hansard booked himself time at Black Box Studios in France with the original idea of taking inventory of his songbook. Working again with former Frames bandmate and producer David Odlum, Hansard was in search of a direction for his next record. As he trove through his previous sessions, various ideas and home recordings, a sketch of an unplanned record began to take shape. The aptly titled “Setting Forth” became the catalyst for the direction Hansard hoped to achieve with Between Two Shores. Recorded with drummer extraordinaire Brian Blade and members of his Fellowship Band the song tackles themes of self-doubt in a time when it’s impossible not to be riddled with uncertainty. The album’s lead track “Time Will be the Healer” is a hopeful plea to a forlorn lover that also speaks to the way for-ward in the current social climate. Indeed, it would be impossible not to in some way address the politics of the day, which Hansard does in “Wheels on Fire” and its refrain of “We will overcome!” Listen to “Time Will Be The Healer” here. While the record truly came together in France, Between Two Shores features material captured in New York and Chicago with a revolving cast of musicians. In addition to Blade, the record also features Thomas Bartlett, Brad Albetta and Rob Moose who ap-peared on much of Rhythm and Repose. However it’s Glen’s touring band – Joseph Doyle, Rob Bochnik, Graham Hopkins, Justin Carroll, Michael Buckley, Ronan Dooney and Curtis Fowlkes – that feature most prominently and take center stage on tracks like the upbeat E Street shuffle of “Roll On Slow” and the Van-tastic “Why Woman.” The album’s title comes from Hansards...

    “As a swinging romantic balladeer, Freddy Cole has a special position in the pantheon of contemporary American music. Through his work, integrity assumes its artistic identity in terms of pace, character and heart.” – Stanley Crouch “If you quiet your thoughts and really listen, Freddy Cole will open the door to your heart with a key that you did not even know existed.” – Ruth Brown “Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing… he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.”- The New York Times Three-time Grammy nominee Freddy Cole is a singer/pianist and younger brother to Nat King Cole. While there are certain unmistakable similarities in timbre to his brother, he has a unique voice and personality. His vocals – suave, elegant, formidable, sometimes spoken and articulate – make him the most respected lyrical storyteller in jazz. Cole’s career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America’s homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own.

    18 and over unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Buddy Guy At age 81, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has received 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 37 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Buddy Guy released his latest studio album Born To Play Guitar on July 31, 2015 via Silvertone/RCA Records, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart. The follow-up to his 2013 first-ever double disc release, Rhythm & Blues, which also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart, Born To Play Guitar was produced by GRAMMY Award winning producer/songwriter and Buddy’s longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge. The release features guest appearances by Van Morrison, Joss Stone, Kim Wilson and Billy Gibbons. Though Buddy Guy will forever be associated with Chicago, his story actually begins in Louisiana. One of five children, he was born in 1936 to a sharecropper’s family and raised on a plantation near the small town of Lettsworth, located some 140 miles northwest of New Orleans. Buddy was just seven years old when he fashioned his first makeshift “guitar”—a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother’s hairpins. In 1957, he took his guitar to Chicago, where he would permanently alter the direction of the instrument, first on numerous sessions for Chess Records playing alongside Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and the rest of the label’s legendary roster, and then on recordings of his own. His incendiary style left its mark on guitarists from Jimmy Page to John Mayer. “He was for me what Elvis was probably like for other people,” said Eric Clapton at Guy’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2005. “My course was set, and he was my pilot.” Seven years later, July 2012 proved to be one of Buddy Guy’s most remarkable years ever. He was awarded the 2012 Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contribution to American culture; earlier in the year, at a performance at the White House, he even persuaded President Obama to join him on a chorus of “Sweet Home Chicago.” Also in 2012, he published his long-awaited memoir,...
