Eugene Uman's Convergence Project

Pianist Eugene Uman composes sizzling pieces of jazz that draw from a range of influences and cultural traditions. This concert will serve as a CD release party for the ensemble's most recent album. Embroidered through his works are heavy harmonic strands from Columbia and Cuba, with modal and rhythmic borders from India and regions of North Africa, all overlain with the format of jazz and free expression. The one constant coursing through Uman's music is energy, sometimes raw, other times refined, but always pushing forward, charting new territory. Eugene Uman has served as artistic director of the Vermont Jazz Center since 1997, where he has produced more than 160 concerts and built the program to a renowned venue and educational hub. Uman's Convergence Project melds the virtuoso talents of Jeff Galindo on trombone, Michael Zsoldos, saxophones, Sebastian Cruz on guitar, Stomu Takeishi, bass, and Satoshi Takeishi, drums, into a compelling amalgam of musical innovation.

A Tribute to George Shearing

For nearly 30 years, the George Shearing Quintet created a distinct sound that even today is recognizable and appreciated. Today five master musicians - most of them members of the original quintet - are bringing back the sounds of this legendary era and the man who was responsible for its creation. The ensemble, led by Charlie Shoemake on vibraphone, includes Joe Bagg on piano; Ron Anthony, guitar; Luther Hughes, bass; and Colin Bailey, drums. Each of these top-level artists has recorded with, toured with or taught a Who's Who list of successful performers. Their work has been heard on movie soundtracks, TV shows and a generation's worth of recordings. This quintet has come together to tour and recreate the famous sound of the classic George Shearing Quintet.

In Jazz there have been only a few great players on the vibraphone, Charlie Shoemake is one of them. -- Artie Shaw
