    Septembet 10 - Jazz Pianist/Composer - Bob Mamet


     


    Chicago Born, Bob Mamet, is an internationally acclaimed Jazz pianist and composer.  He has composed music for over a hundred projects in T.V. film, and advertising, in addition to touring as a sideman and bandleader.


    Bob's distinctive mixture of Jazz styles and composition caught the ear of the major record labels, and in 1994 he signed with Atlantic Records. Bob recorded three highly successful albums for Atlantic, plus additional recordings for Sony and Warner Brothers.


    His collaborations with artists such as Alex Acuna, Larry Carlton, Eric Marienthal, Gerald Albright, David Benoit and many other top artists led Jazziz magazine to proclaim him a "brilliant composer" who gives his players "an intelligent, thoughtful, and vibrant musical landscape in which to work."


    He has been described as a "master of melody and structure" by The San Francisco Chronicle; "adventurous… sparkling… intriguing" by Jazz Times Magazine; and the Chicago Sun Times calls him simply "The Natural."


    Bob Mamet will soon be releasing his 5th CD, “London House Blues”, on the BluJazz label. Featuring original compositions as well as standards and classics from the Great American Songbook and Post-Bop eras, the album serves as a tribute to the famed artists who frequented the legendary Chicago Jazz club in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

    Rondi Charleston

    in Music

    Rondi Charlston is a vocalist and songwriter from New York.
    Rondi Charleston grew up in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, the daughter of an English professor father and voice teacher/singer mother. Her father, a jazz enthusiast, played jazz piano, and took her to a performance by Duke Ellington, where she met the man.  After performing as a guest artist with the University of Chicago's theatre program, she enrolled at Juilliard as a theatre major, but soon transferred to music.  She also studied journalism at New York University, desiring to work with Charles Kuralt. While in school, she discovered a Metropolitan Transit Authority cover-up that claimed a train crash was caused by an engineer high on illegal drugs, when no illegal drugs were in his system, according to the coroner's report.  ABC News hired her when she broke the story; she went on to work with Diane Sawyer on Prime Time Live for almost seven years, earning Peabody and Emmy Awards along the way.
    Rondi has released a total of five albums, two of them on Motema Music: Who Knows Where the Time Goes (2011) and her current recording, Signs of Life.  Her work, both on record and live, has earned her stellar critical coverage from media outlets such as DownBeat, JazzTimes, Jazziz, Jazz Inside,  The New York Times, Daily News, Boston Herald, and the Village Voice.
