    in Music


                                                                      JOEY SOMMERVILLE 
                                                                   OVERNIGHT SENSATION 
    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.

    Alex Gershman with Sasha's Bloc is back to talk their new hit single FEELS LIKE JAZZ!

    Jazz collective Sasha’s Bloc solidifies their growing presence on the U.S. music scene with an original album that hearkens back to the Big Jazz Band sound of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, and to a performance style that evokes such seminal acts as Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Count Basie, Scott Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald and more.



    Sasha’s Bloc is an amalgam of varied artists, nationalities and experiences, all fueled by bassist and songwriter Alex Gershman to deliver a sound that is consistently big, boisterous, full of spirit and rich in everything that makes jazz linger as an American phenomenon. On Heart On Fire, Gershman is honored to have Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit perform on multiple tracks.


    The group’s core nonet is comprised of Nora Rothman, vocal; Brandon Fields, saxophone; Alex Budman, saxophone, clarinet; Kye Palmer, trumpet, Bob McChesney, trombone; Kevin Winnard, drums; Steve Cotter, guitar; Andy Langham, piano. Guest artists on the upcoming album include: Jane Monheit, vocal; Alvin Chea, vocal; Patrick Tuzzolino, vocal; Princess Fortier, vocal; Glynis Leflore vocal; Octavia Pace vocal; James Lum, banjo; Jason Fabus, accordion; Marc T. Bolin, Tuba. Gershman plays upright bass and electric bass.

    This evening, I will interview and share music of Maija Rejman a jazz vocalist who resides in the Washington Metropolitan area.  When she was nine years old, she began performing on several Jacksonville, FL television stations.  At 11 years old, she sang regularly on the radio for the USO in Newport, Rhode Island, and on WEEI, Boston. Then at age 12 local Boston songwriters started hiring Maija to do new song demos.  After graduating from high school, she sang briefly with Bobby Timmons at the original Bohemian Caverns in Washington, D.C.  In 1987, Maija sang at the Apollo Theatre winning one of the weekly contests.  As a result, she started performing in all the major venues in the Washington Metropolitan area.  Over the years, Maija has performed with many great jazz artists such as Bobby Timmons, Keter Betts, Ron Elliston, Charlie Byrd, Buck Hill, Bob Butta, Robert Redd, Chuck Redd, Tommy Cecil, James King, Wade Beach, David Kane, Drew Gress, Naser Abadey, Lenny Robinson, Tony Martucci, Mike Crotty and Claudio Roditi.  Join us this evening at Jazz Notes keeping jazz alive.
