Livingston Taylor's vast musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres, including folk, pop, gospel and jazz. His versatility has led to performing with such major artists as Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett, and Jethro Tull among many others. As the younger brother of iconic folk rock star James Taylor, Livingston successfully carved out his own niche in the pop music world, gaining acclaim for exquisitely reworked covers of classics like “On Broadway” and “Over the Rainbow” among others, as well as his warm, heartfelt original tunes.

RICHARD ELLIOT SHOWS CANCELLED

Saxophonist Richard Elliot has arrived at a very special anniversary for blowing audiences away with his soulfully robust playing. 2014 marked 30 years since the release of his debut solo album, Initial Approach.  Elliot's most recent release presents the most overtly sensual, romantic and intimate album of his career in collaboration with contemporary jazz production/guitar giant Paul Brown. The title of this 17th solo project is Lip Service (the artist’s first for Heads Up/Concord Music Group). "Quite possibly, the high point of the show came when Richard Elliot performed his rendition of Percy Sledge’s immortal song "When a Man Loves a Woman." The sheer lushness of the melody combined with Elliot’s depth and power on his tenor sax covered the crowd in a warm blanket of seductive sound. He was simply magnificent, powerfully holding notes with perfect pitch, proving once again to be a richly passionate professional." - Randall Parrish/jazzreview.com [less-]

Singer/Songwriter and Cabaret Performer, Linda Marks, believes music is magic:  a universal language that bridges all divides and brings us together so we know that we are not alone.  Music has been the lifeblood in Linda's spirit; she started working out melodies at the piano as a toddler and has continued to do so throughout her life. Linda studied music at Yale University, where she co-founded Yale's 3rd women's singing group, Something Extra, as a 17-year old freshman.  She released her first album "Dreams and Themes" in 1983, and "Heart to Heart" last Fall at Scullers.  Recently, Linda performed in a Carole King/Burt Bacharach show at Club Cafe in Boston with Kaoruko Pilkington, and also appeared on "All Things Considered" with Lisa Mullins.  She also wrote "Love Is the Answer" for Upstage Lung Cancer's SingOut! benefit concert this past spring. Linda has performed at many Boston area venues (including Ryles and Amazing Things), at the St. Louis Cabaret Conference and at Crazy Coqs in London. This special CD release concert for Linda's newest album, Coming Full Circle, will feature the undeniable talents of Doug Hammer on piano, Dave Landoni on bass, Dave Birkin on saxophone and flute, Geoff Wadsworth on saxophone, Miki Matsuki on drums, Junko Fujiwara on cello and duets with 13-year-old singer with the voice of an angel, Claire McFarland.  With her heart to heart style, Linda weaves together a rich tapestry including favorite songs written by Carole King, Gordon Lightfoot, Jimmy Webb, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Peter Allen, Carole Bayer Sager, Karla Bonoff and Anita Baker, among others, along with her own original songs Scullers Jazz Club and the Boathouse 400 Restaurant rekindles the magic of the great supper clubs with a Dinner and Show Package that enlivens all of the senses!

RICHARD BONA NEW CD IS HERITAGE There’s a lot of talk these days about the future of music: the blending of old and new, the cross-pollination of cultures, the blurring of genres. There aren’t many musical artists who inhabit both the past and the future as fully as Richard Bona. Bona's tunes combine African polyrhythms, harmonic virtuosity, and a pop songwriter’s gift for memorable, accessible melodies. Bona has played with Afropop stars Manu Dibango and Salif Keita. He has toured and recorded with Pat Metheny, Joe Zawinul, Didier Lockwood, Harry Belafonte, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Steve Gadd, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Chaka Khan, Tito Puente, Chucho Valdès, Mike Stern, Larry Coryell, David Sanborn, Kenny Garrett, Joe Sample, Harry Connick Jr., Raul Midon, Billy Cobham, Queen Latifah, Branford Marsalis, Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea, and Sadao Watanabe. “Imagine an artist with Jaco Pastorious’s virtuosity, George Benson’s vocal fluidity, Joao Gilberto’s sense of song and harmony, all mixed up with African culture. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you Richard Bona!”—Los Angeles Times [less-]

Plena and bomba are distinctive musical styles of Puerto Rico, and the virtuoso musicians of Plena Libre are their contemporary masters. These four-time Grammy Award nominees combine a hard-hitting horn section, master hand drummers, and lush three-part vocal harmonies into a modern blend. Plena Libre mix traditional Puerto Rican rhythms with modern Afro-Caribbean influences, and folkloric musical roots with contemporary compositions. They’ve toured the world from Morocco to California and everywhere in between, and recorded with some of the biggest names in Latin music, like Eddie Palmieri, Papo Lucca, and Nestor Torres. Over the course of a 21-year, 15-album career, bandleader Gary Nunez and his orchestra have revived the once-dormant plena sound for a new generation, electrifying audiences with a dazzling spectacle of horns, drums, and dance. “A mad weave of polyrhythms that simply sizzle.”  - The Boston Herald “They can rock the house with traditional singing and drumming, then turn around and lay down a smoking, jazz-heavy, Afro-Rican jam.”   - East Bay Express  [less-]

Will Calhoun: Celebrating Drummer Elvin Jones

WILL CALHOUN CELEBRATING ELVIN JONES CD RELEASE with Antoine Roney-saxophone, Carlos McKinney-piano, Gerald Cannon-bass Although he's best known as the hard-driving, groove-oriented drummer for the pioneering rock group Living Colour, Will Calhoun has played in a staggering variety of styles and traditions over the course of his eclectic career. Straight-ahead jazz, fusion, traditional African percussion, funk, hip-hop, and of course hard rock -- Calhoun has explored them all, and he traces the roots of all of them to one man: legendary drummer Elvin Jones. On his second album for Motéma Music, Celebrating Elvin Jones (due out August 19), Calhoun pays tribute to his earliest and most profound influence with a stellar band of musicians, all of whom were impacted by Jones through their personal growth as a musician or their past working with him directly: bassist Christian McBride, saxophonist Antoine Roney, pianist/keyboardist Carlos McKinney, and trumpeter Keyon Harrold. The great keyboardist Jan Hammer, a member of Jones' trio for On the Mountain (1975), joins the band for a reprise of that album's Gene Perla-penned track "Destiny;" and Senegalese percussionist Doudou N'Diaye Rose joins with a group of drummers for the traditional Japanese folk song "Doll of the Bride." "Elvin connected my worlds," Calhoun says. "Although I saw him playing jazz, I felt rock and roll, I felt fusion, I felt African music. It sounds electric, it sounds acoustic, it sounds very African, it sounds very Latin, there are all these elements in there." [less-]

Singer/Songwriter and Cabaret Performer, Linda Marks, believes music is magic:  a universal language that bridges all divides and brings us together so we know that we are not alone.  Music has been the lifeblood in Linda's spirit; she started working out melodies at the piano as a toddler and has continued to do so throughout her life. Linda studied music at Yale University, where she co-founded Yale's 3rd women's singing group, Something Extra, as a 17-year old freshman.  She released her first album "Dreams and Themes" in 1983, and "Heart to Heart" last Fall at Scullers.  Recently, Linda performed in a Carole King/Burt Bacharach show at Club Cafe in Boston with Kaoruko Pilkington, and also appeared on "All Things Considered" with Lisa Mullins.  She also wrote "Love Is the Answer" for Upstage Lung Cancer's SingOut! benefit concert this past spring. Linda has performed at many Boston area venues (including Ryles and Amazing Things), at the St. Louis Cabaret Conference and at Crazy Coqs in London. This special CD release concert for Linda's newest album, Coming Full Circle, will feature the undeniable talents of Doug Hammer on piano, Dave Landoni on bass, Dave Birkin on saxophone and flute, Geoff Wadsworth on saxophone, Miki Matsuki on drums, Junko Fujiwara on cello and duets with 13-year-old singer with the voice of an angel, Claire McFarland.  With her heart to heart style, Linda weaves together a rich tapestry including favorite songs written by Carole King, Gordon Lightfoot, Jimmy Webb, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Peter Allen, Carole Bayer Sager, Karla Bonoff and Anita Baker, among others, along with her own original songs Scullers Jazz Club and the Boathouse 400 Restaurant rekindles the magic of the great supper clubs with a Dinner and Show Package that enlivens all of the senses!

RICHARD BONA NEW CD IS HERITAGE There’s a lot of talk these days about the future of music: the blending of old and new, the cross-pollination of cultures, the blurring of genres. There aren’t many musical artists who inhabit both the past and the future as fully as Richard Bona. Bona's tunes combine African polyrhythms, harmonic virtuosity, and a pop songwriter’s gift for memorable, accessible melodies. Bona has played with Afropop stars Manu Dibango and Salif Keita. He has toured and recorded with Pat Metheny, Joe Zawinul, Didier Lockwood, Harry Belafonte, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Steve Gadd, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Chaka Khan, Tito Puente, Chucho Valdès, Mike Stern, Larry Coryell, David Sanborn, Kenny Garrett, Joe Sample, Harry Connick Jr., Raul Midon, Billy Cobham, Queen Latifah, Branford Marsalis, Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea, and Sadao Watanabe. “Imagine an artist with Jaco Pastorious’s virtuosity, George Benson’s vocal fluidity, Joao Gilberto’s sense of song and harmony, all mixed up with African culture. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you Richard Bona!”—Los Angeles Times [less-]

Plena and bomba are distinctive musical styles of Puerto Rico, and the virtuoso musicians of Plena Libre are their contemporary masters. These four-time Grammy Award nominees combine a hard-hitting horn section, master hand drummers, and lush three-part vocal harmonies into a modern blend. Plena Libre mix traditional Puerto Rican rhythms with modern Afro-Caribbean influences, and folkloric musical roots with contemporary compositions. They’ve toured the world from Morocco to California and everywhere in between, and recorded with some of the biggest names in Latin music, like Eddie Palmieri, Papo Lucca, and Nestor Torres. Over the course of a 21-year, 15-album career, bandleader Gary Nunez and his orchestra have revived the once-dormant plena sound for a new generation, electrifying audiences with a dazzling spectacle of horns, drums, and dance. “A mad weave of polyrhythms that simply sizzle.”  - The Boston Herald “They can rock the house with traditional singing and drumming, then turn around and lay down a smoking, jazz-heavy, Afro-Rican jam.”   - East Bay Express  [less-]

Will Calhoun: Celebrating Drummer Elvin Jones

WILL CALHOUN CELEBRATING ELVIN JONES CD RELEASE with Antoine Roney-saxophone, Carlos McKinney-piano, Gerald Cannon-bass Although he's best known as the hard-driving, groove-oriented drummer for the pioneering rock group Living Colour, Will Calhoun has played in a staggering variety of styles and traditions over the course of his eclectic career. Straight-ahead jazz, fusion, traditional African percussion, funk, hip-hop, and of course hard rock -- Calhoun has explored them all, and he traces the roots of all of them to one man: legendary drummer Elvin Jones. On his second album for Motéma Music, Celebrating Elvin Jones (due out August 19), Calhoun pays tribute to his earliest and most profound influence with a stellar band of musicians, all of whom were impacted by Jones through their personal growth as a musician or their past working with him directly: bassist Christian McBride, saxophonist Antoine Roney, pianist/keyboardist Carlos McKinney, and trumpeter Keyon Harrold. The great keyboardist Jan Hammer, a member of Jones' trio for On the Mountain (1975), joins the band for a reprise of that album's Gene Perla-penned track "Destiny;" and Senegalese percussionist Doudou N'Diaye Rose joins with a group of drummers for the traditional Japanese folk song "Doll of the Bride." "Elvin connected my worlds," Calhoun says. "Although I saw him playing jazz, I felt rock and roll, I felt fusion, I felt African music. It sounds electric, it sounds acoustic, it sounds very African, it sounds very Latin, there are all these elements in there." [less-]
