Sam Williams Quintet

Turn the Moon CD cover

Sam Williams - (saxophone)    Art Lande - (piano)
Tom Gershwin - (trumpet)    Patrick McDevitt - (bass)    Dru Heller - (drums)

Sam's music is deservedly front and center during a three week residency at Nocturne Jazz and Supper Club.

The opening week was a superlative musical evening. The set list was dynamic, fun, challenging and solidly executed by this stellar group of musicians. These evenings are a real delight.

Nov10The Music of Steve Swallow and Carla Bley
This couple has been playing in composing music together and individually for 50 years. The pieces are fun, interesting, beautiful, simple, challenging, and quirky; so – let's play them! Let's see if we can find doorways in and through this fridge for bar. Some listening to begin.
Dec01Music of Dignity, Nobility and Inner Strength
Let's stop slouching and lounging about for a moment, and stand proud of the precious life we have been given. The ancestors ask us to stand tall and resonate the humble dignity that brings hope, joy and strength, into our daily lives. Some music from jazz history will be played, as well as composing and improvising music resonating this vitality on this very day.

Flex

Art Lande (piano)
Gonzalo Teppa (bass)
Dru Heller (drums)

Flex is a band formed in 2017 that embodies flexibility, flexion of muscle and mind, the reflex of heart and mood, and the inflection of a wide range of musical influences. Featuring pianist Art Lande, bassist Gonzalo Teppa, and drummer Dru Heller, the group embraces the myriad of possible textures and colors available to this time-honored instrumentation.

The bass takes over the theme in an arco fashion, a drum solo appears at an unexpected moment, forms are suspended or changed at will, a quiet piece gets funky or becomes a 5/4 for salsa dance. Each band member is ready to bring his musical wishes to the table at any moment, and the group embraces and commits to the new direction.

The repertoire of the band includes compositions from its members, arrangements of jazz standards, open improvisations, and tunes called-out or arrived-at that the ensemble has never playing together before. So there is an atmosphere of innovation and tradition.

Come and listen, take the ride, and flex your sensual, personal and musical consciousness with us -- we invite you to share in our band's joyful, energetic spirit.
