Behind every musical overnight sensation are years of toiling away in rehearsal halls, recording studios and sweaty nightclubs meticulously honing one’s craft. In trumpeter Joey Sommerville’s case, it’s more than two decades of writing, recording and touring to cultivate his following and establish his presence on the national scene. More than 20 years in the making, the soul-jazz trumpeter’s fifth album, “Overnight Sensation” features Earl Klugh, Jeff Lorber, Jeff Bradshaw, Elan Trotman and Eric Essix.
The ironically titled “Overnight Sensation” has received excellent reviews including a ringing endorsement from USA Today. The album continues to ride the top of the jazz radio charts. It features Joey along with notable guests, Jeff Lorber, Jeff Bradshaw, Elan Trotman and jazz guitar icon, Earl Klugh. In 2015, Joey continues his full touring schedule including appearances at The Blue Note NYC, The Berks Jazz Festival, The Keystone Jazz Festival and numerous other venues throughout the U.S. and abroad. For the third year in a row, he will be performing at and hosting Joey Sommerville’s The Get Down Club on The Capital Jazz SuperCruise.
February 18 - Jazz Saxophonist/Composer/Educator - Elan TrotmanGrowing up in Barbados, Elan remembers hearing calypsos, reggae and local music in his early days. Blending Caribbean rhythms from his roots with skillful horn textures, his playing is full of surprises. Elan has recorded and performed with such notables as Roberta Flack, Kirk Whalum, Brian McKnight, Johnny Gill, Tony Terry, Nathan East, Najee, Don Grusin, Peter Gammons and Bronson Arroyo to name a few.Elan states, “I don’t want to limit myself to the usual format. I stretch out, take chances, and add an edge to my solos. I enjoy the genre and the concept but I also break some of the rules because that’s how I play live, bringing all of my different influences into the music.”
Saxophonist Elan Trotman, has quickly become one of contemporary jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers, and continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, and recording artist. So much so that he's becoming the go-to sax-man for smooth jazz artists like Peter White, Paul Brown, Keiko Matsui, Brian Simpson, Rick Braun, and a guest spot on the Dave Koz 2012 Cruise to Europe.
Trotman’s playing, though inspired by Grover Washington, Jr. and Kirk Whalum, among others, displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone. So much so that he's a 3-time winner of the New England Urban Music Award for Best Jazz Male, 2-time nominee for a Boston Music Award, and winner for Instrumentalist of the Year (Barbados) in 2011. Born and raised in Barbados, the native island of pop star Rihanna, and educated at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, Trotman approaches jazz in his own way. Blending Caribbean rhythms from his roots with skillful horn textures, his playing is full of surprises. “I like to stretch out, take chances on my solos and on my records.” Inspiring and eminently listenable, Trotman’s music is never predictable.
