UPCOMING EVENTS

Noel Freidline Jazz Ensemble

Oct 24, 2021 - 3:00 PM
Swinging Sophistication - Tribute to the Modern Jazz Quartet featuring Vibraphonist Jon Metzger. Vibraphonist Milt “Bags” Jackson and pianist John Lewis were not cut from the same cloth. Steeped in the blues, Jackson was a heavy swinger and thrived as an improviser. Lewis was a trained musician with a masters degree, who had aspirations of combining jazz and classical. Together with bassist Percy Heath and drummer Connie Kay, as the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) they created a chamber jazz style that highlighted the lyrical tension between Lewis's mannered, but roomy, compositions and Jackson's unapologetic swing. Long known for their complex and iconic compositions and arrangements, the vast majority of the MJQ’s arrangements have never been published, consequently most of their music has never been heard live outside of their own performances. Working over the course of several months Noel Freidline transcribed a full program of the MJQ’s music, including classics such as “Concorde,” “Vendome,” “Softly As In a Morning Sunrise” and “Summertime.”

Alyona Aksyonova (piano) and James Waldo (cello) formed this duo in New York City in 2009. Described as “exciting…ravishing…sublime” by Ellen Moryl, founder and director emeritus of Charleston’s Piccolo Spoleto, they have performed at numerous chamber music festivals around the US. The duo presented a complete cycle of works by Beethoven for cello and piano at the Columbia Museum of Art in Columbia, SC in 2015, and in 2017 completed their first recital tour of Northeast China. That same year they became the ensemble-in-residence for Center City Concerts at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Charlotte, NC.
