Susana Pineda (vocals)

Even before her debut in the United States in 2013, Susana Pineda had been acclaimed by the music community of her hometown, Medellin, Colombia, and continues to be sought after in the USA for her unique balance of subtlety and creativity.

From an early age, Susana showed signs of an artistic and creative mind. Her upbringing in Colombia gave her a foundation of color, song, and dance, as is reflected by the festive culture of Medellín. More ...

Cuddle — A Steve Swallow Music Event

Cuddle band

Art Lande (piano)
Amy Shelley (drums)
Juli Royster (bass)

Steve Swallow has been one of the premier bassists (acoustic, then electric) and composers in jazz going back to the 1950s with Jimmy Giuffre and Paul Bley, and later with the likes of Gary Burton and John Scofield.

Art Lande began playing with Steve in the early 70s in San Francisco and in the last few years, touring with Steve in a trio featuring reedman Mike McGinnis (2 CDs on Sunnyside Records).

Steve has a profound lyrical sense, a beautiful ear for harmony, and a tricky idea of form. His pieces are circular, so we are never quite certain about start and finish, which gives them an eternal quality. Some are places to live rather than songs. They are about daily life — sweeping up, hotels, or soft skin. They may invoke salsa, swinging jazz or trance-like riffs that subtly modulate.

The Cuddle band, who have delved into the music of Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and Wayne shorter over the years, have chosen Steve Swallow's tantalizing compositions to play on the weekend of September 21 and 22nd at 7 PM, to bathe all of us in Swallow‘s gorgeous and quirky light.

Bring your blankets and pillows, as a Cuddle concert is best received lying down to relax and dream.

Art Lande Dream Band

Art, Johannes, Shane, Tina, portraits

Art Lande (piano)
Tina Raymond (drums)
Johannes Weidenmueller (bass)
Shane Endsley (trumpet)

The Art Lande Dream Band came about because Johannes was planning a November family visit to Colorado and said "Let's play!" Luckily, Art imagined this ensemble that had never played together and should. Everyone was available. Venues said yes, and our weekend will happen November 1 - 3.

Johannes is a wonderful bassist with a great ear, sharp rhythmic sense and creative imagination. He has played with everyone, especially the Kenny Werner Trio with Ari Honig. He lives in Brooklyn, NY, teaches at the New School, and is a full-fledged and helpful therapist. Art met Johannes when he lived in Boulder, earning his Masters in Music at CU.

Art met Tina while she was an undergrad at University of Cincinnati. She later attended CalArts, where Art often teaches in the winter. Her background of Detroit Drumline, big band in Ohio, and California freedom and individuality all integrates in her powerful yet sensitive drumming. Art plays on her highly acclaimed CD Left-Right-Left. Tina teaches at LA City College.

Shane Endsley was part of Art's Russian Dragon Band, playing both drums and trumpet. From his early days with Ani DeFranco and Steve Coleman, to his incredible group Kneebody, Shane is truly one of the most daring, lyrical and communicative improvisors on the planet. Shane is teaching at Metro State in Denver.

With Art starting fires and floods, and stabilizing when needed, this band, probably a one-time only collaboration, will surely exceed the dream. Don't miss it! Even visit us two or three times, as each night will be very different, unique and special.

Concerts and possible clinics in Denver, Boulder and Lafayette.
More details coming soon.

Oregonia with guest artist Paul McCandless

Touring in the Bay Area, California

Oregonia performing live

Art Lande (piano)
John Gunther (woodwinds)
Tim Wendel (guitar)
Special Guest Artist Paul McCandless (saxophones)

Oregonia is a project involved with playing the compositions of Paul McCandless, Ralph Towner and friends who forged a unique, modern Jazz language. The group Oregon, formed in 1970 as an offshoot of the Paul Winter Consort, is still touring and recording today. The original band with Glen Moore, bass, and Colin Walcott, percussion and sitar, preserved a love for classical music, world music, and a fresh resonant harmonic pallet with lyrical, intricate melodies. Add a chamber music instrumentation with acoustic guitar, oboe, bass clarinet, violin, some hip electronics and tabla - this is vintage Oregon.

Art Lande (piano) got to know the Oregon folks in 1974 and has performed and loved this music, especially along with Paul McCandless. John Gunther (reeds) and Tim Wendel (electric guitar) are fairly new to a lot of this music, which is exciting for all of us. John's melodic soul on soprano sax, clarinet and flute is supported by his rich sound. Tim brings a spacious, inventive sense of harmony and a patient yet edgy development of ideas. With Art's varied and quirky piano, the band brings the music forward with a different sound and sensibility.

Like Oregon, the group's focus is on improvisation, encouraged by beautiful compositions (we include some by vibist Dave Samuels and guitarist Ross Trout - Oregon friends) and intriguing forms. From a legacy of Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Fred Hersch and the German label ECM that Art recorded for from 1974 -1987, this hopeful, heartful and sometimes mysterious music continues with Oregonia.

It can be a difficult time on earth, we hope this music will be helpful, encouraging a positive spirit in the ears and hearts of the listeners.

Concerts and possible clinics in Oakland, Santa Cruz, San Jose and Healdsburg.
More details coming soon.
