    THE JAZZ BEAT CAFE: featuring: Thelonious Monk's jazz septet. Monk's Music

    in Music

    The first song "Abide With Me"—a hymn by W. H. Monk—is an austere rendition played only by the septet's horn section. The song "Ruby, My Dear" is performed only by Monk, Coleman Hawkins, Wilbur Ware, and Art Blakey. John Coltrane had joined Monk after playing with the Miles Davis Quintet, and Monk can be heard enthusiastically calling on him to take the first horn solo on the album in "Well, You Needn't" (though Coltrane's name does not appear on the front cover). All of the songs except one are original compositions by Thelonious Monk, but some had appeared on previous albums by Monk. The two mixes of this album (stereo and mono) are notable in that they used entirely different setups of microphones, recording the same performances. The stereo mix was recorded using microphones at a greater distance from the band, and therefore has a distinctly different sound from the mono mix. Thelonious Monk – piano Ray Copeland – trumpet Gigi Gryce – alto saxophone Coleman Hawkins – tenor saxophone John Coltrane – tenor saxophone Wilbur Ware – double bass Art Blakey – drums 1.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Hilary Kole!

    in Music

    We've welcomed Hilary Kole before now.  But, let me say this in the strongest of terms - her life has done a 180!  This beautiful and strong and talented woman has risen like a phoenix from her own story - worthy of a movie.  That's all that will be said for now.  We'll focus on the positive turn that a shining star has made :)

    Hilary is no stranger to recording.  Good gravy, she's no stranger to ANYTHING pertaining to the music business!  This surreal talent has been known in the New York Jazz circuit for years - in concert halls, symphonies, off-Broadway, TV, and extremely important film events.  That's just for starters!  Hilary has worked with the BEST in the business - it would be exhausting to list ALL of her admirers and those who have shared the stage with her.  But please allow me to name drop: Brubeck, Michel Legrand, Cedar Walton, Nancy Wilson, Quincy Jones, Kenny Barron - we'd be here all day!

    Our guest started singing and playing piano when she was FIVE.  At the age of 12, she was awarded a scholarship to the Walden School for Music Composition - that set her on a path to become an award-winner.  The Manhattan School of Music is also in her blood.  She learned so much there because she's such a willing vessel.  SO much so that Hillary was the youngest singer ever to play at the prestigious Rainbow Room.

    It's as though she has been preppred for this moment and this Judy Garland tribute.  You may have heard of Hilary because of her work in "Our Sinatra" and "Singing Astaire.  RAVE reviews!  But it was taking her Judy songs on the road that led her HERE.  With each note sung on "The Judy Garland Project", Hilary makes us gasp.  How can this be?  Judy LIVES in a golden throat that was born to sing her songs.  Please join us on 4/21 - in The Chat Room!
