Pianist David Stoler and saxophonist Greg Abate come together to bring you a night of feast for the ear. Greg Abate jazz saxophonist, flutist, composer continues as an International Jazz/Recording Artist with 225 days a year touring the globe. In the mid 70’s after finishing a four year program at Berklee College Of Music, Greg played lead alto for the Ray Charles Orchestra for 2 years. In 1978 Greg formed his group Channel One which was a favorite in the New England area and from there had the opportunity to play tenor sax with the revived Artie Shaw Orchestra under leadership of Dick Johnson from 1986 to ’87. Following this experience Greg ventured out as post hard bop soloist playing Jazz Festivals, Jazz Societies and Jazz Clubs throughout the U.S. Canada and abroad, including most of Europe, UK, and Moscow and Georgia Russia. Greg’s newest release Kindred Spirits Greg Abate Phil Woods with The Tim Ray Trio. Whaling City Sound Records Records Greg is also an adjunct professor of Jazz Studies at Rhode Island College and is also a very active jazz clinician with co. sponsorship from the Conn -Selmer Instrument Co., conducting workshops and master classes through the U.S and abroad. Greg has been inducted into the RI MUSIC HALL OF FAME 2016 What some say about Greg Abate: “I sleep a lot better knowing there are alto players like Greg! It was a joy to make music with him and he writes good songs that are challenging.” Phil Woods Abate is not content to rely on stock bebop riffs and standard chord progressions. Rather, the sharp angularity of his phrases and the often startling pauses in his fast-moving lines give his work a feeling of constant invention and creativity.” –Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune “…Abate’s musical style can be seen as a distillation of swing’s easygoing vibe and bop’s more animated groove. He has developed a unique voice. –METRO San Jose, “Greg Abate is an absolute powerhouse who will absolutely not let hard driving bebop die. One of the most exciting players around today, Greg’s commitment to the music is total…” –W. Pickowitz, Jr., The Jazz Messenger “Multi-saxophonist Greg Abate is a prime example of the ‘rear back and blow’ school of contemporary bop-based players. The tunes he writes or chooses are based on the kinds of changes that harmony-oriented jazzmen have favored since the beginning and he swings through them with and eager and easy virtuosity.” –David Franklin, Jazz Times “Greg Abate is one of the most appealing saxophonists on the scene today. He is mature with an abundance of gentle self-confidence. The result is that he plays music with sweetness and daring.” –Jim Merod, New Jazz Recordings Dave Stoler is a native of Madison WI, and has formerly resided in New York City, Milwaukee and Miami. One of the busiest keyboardists in the area, Dave works with his own jazz trio, the Tony Castaneda Latin Jazz Sextet and The Darren Sterud NOLA Tribute Band.

When forming this band, Javier, Jake, Gustavo, and Ben put their usual musical abilities aside. The music invited a different set of assumptions and insights to be discovered, manifested, and woven into the band’s sound. The result is a music that is intuitive but also, seductively puzzling. As Javier stated: “it is like re-discovering musical intuition”. That is what makes listening to this band so exciting. The new album, Ephemeral Assumptions -featuring Javier Red (piano), Jake Wark (tenor saxophone), Gustavo Cortinas (Drums) and Ben Dillinger (Bass)- is a strong collective statement of the band’s arrival. The music ranges from the earthy and physical “Stretched Particle” to the introspective and reflective “Suspension”. With strong and mysterious rhythmic hooks, this album fully engages the listener’s imagination and attention. Within the band, “a strong natural musicality is always there, while also maintaining a draw of the enigmatic”, Javier said. The album will be released this Summer 2019 with Delmark Records.

Cafe CODA
1224 Williamson st.
Madison, WI  53703 Map

Saxophonist, flautist, bass clarinetist and composer Tom Gullion is an intuitive, emotional, and melodic musician. He immediately knew his destiny upon hearing a saxophone solo during his brother’s big band concert. Gullion grew up in the Indianapolis area, and first studied with master teachers Larry Kirkman and Harry Miedema. He went on to study with David N. Baker at Indiana University, where he cemented his foundation in Bebop as well as advanced modern concepts. When jazz trombone legend J.J. Johnson put together a new quintet in 1988, Gullion, at 22, joined the group along with Cedar Walton, Rufus Reid and Victor Lewis. After several successful U.S. tours, Gullion delayed his professional career to finish his studies with Baker at Indiana. After his matriculation, Gullion toured the world with various acts, playing first in New York, and then moving to Spain, which served as his base for European performances with the Spanish jazz group Clunia, with whom he recorded a successful CD, “Carpe Diem.” Apart from his busy schedule with Clunia, Gullion also performed for several broadcast concerts; worked and recorded with the Baldo Martinez Quartet. Gullion moved to Chicago in 1995, and quickly established himself in the jazz scene there. He recorded two CDs, “Cat’s Cradle” and “Greens and Blues,” for Naim Audio (London). Gullion also immersed himself into the creative music scene including avant garde jazz as well as underground rock. In 2002, Gullion moved to rural Wisconsin where he honed his skills as a composer. The result of this was a solo album of original compositions entitled Catharsis, where he performed all the instruments. He also released two albums for quintet, Carswell and Time It Is. Gullion founded the Driftless Jazz Festival which evolved into a free and community-centric music festival. Gullion also combined his software talents to release several successful music apps for mobile devices. Gullion says, “I practice every day to maintain my physical abilities, but in the moment of making music I do my best to get out of the way and just let the music play through me. It’s almost like I become a passive participant. I observe the music flowing and don’t try to control it at all.” https://www.tomgullion.com $15 (Students $10 with valid ID)... See MoreSee Less

Collector https://collectormusic.net/ New Record: Post Rock Lately August 2019- Digital only release through Bandcamp Album artwork by Gillian Olivas-Etherington Post Rock Lately is the debut record from pan-Midwest trio Collector. Composed of Jakob Heinemann on bass (Chicago), Devin Drobka on drums (Milwaukee), and Matt Blair on Fender Rhodes and electronics (Minneapolis), this working trio of improvisors has played together in countless contexts stretching back to 2012. For their first recording, they exhibit an utterly unique approach to free improvisation through two expansive pieces, recorded live in April 2018 at the Slate Arts venue in Chicago. Taking as much influence from drone and noise music as from classic free jazz, the trio moves through a series of rich, evocative sonic landscapes, at times reaching moments of dense freneticism paralleled only by inverse textures of extreme sparsity and silence. Above all, Collector prizes close listening and a sensibility for self-expression in their music. Streaming Link: https://collector-music.bandcamp.com/album/post-rock-lately Jakob Heinemann is a bass player, composer, improvisor and educator from Madison, Wisconsin. In 2017, he graduated from Lawrence University with a degree in music performance, where he studied with many great artists, including Bill Carrothers, Matt Turner, Patty Darling and Mark Urness. Also in 2017 Jakob moved to Chicago, IL. He has quickly established himself as one of the most in demand young improvisors on the Chicago scene, working with established players like Dave Rempis, Jim Baker, Josh Berman, Keefe Jackson, and Steve Hunt, as well as the younger generation of Julian Kirshner, Adam Shead, Emerson Hunton, Sarah Clausen, Molly Jones, and many others. His debut record of solo bass improvisations, Latticework , came out in May 2019 on SCRIPTS Records. D evin Drobka , drummer, composer and educator has been playing drums for the past 20 years. Devin is currently one of the most in demand Performers and Educators in the Midwest. Devin received his BMA in Jazz Drumming Performance from Berklee College of Music in 09', and shortly thereafter moved to New York to further his musical knowledge.
