THE CALIFORNIA JAZZ ARTS SOCIETY PRESENTS: Kristin Korb and Andy Langham

THE CALIFORNIA JAZZ ARTS SOCIETY PRESENTS:

 HOUSE CONCERT 

with

KRISTIN KORB AND ANDY LANGHAM

APRIL 8

There are few bassists who can sing and there are even fewer who can do it well. Kristin Korb is one of those artists who make you forget that she is playing the bass when you hear her crystalline voice. Inspired by the days when music was romantic and made you want to dance, Kristin and her trio embody that spirit and carry their audiences along for the ride. Love eventually brought the American bassist and vocalist to Denmark in 2011.

Korb earned her Music Education degree at Eastern Montana College and her masters in Classical Bass Performance the University of California, San Diego. It was while she was a student at UCSD that her professor, Bertram Turetzky inspired her to sing and play bass at the same time. She also studied with Ray Brown, with whom she made her recording debut, Introducing Kristin Korb with the Ray Brown Trio released in 1996.

She has taught at the University of Southern California where she was coordinator of vocal jazz studies, Azuza Pacific University, Grossmont Community College and was Director of Jazz Studies at Central Washington University. Korb is still very involved in educational outreach and teaches at universities, jazz camps and festivals with young students.

As President of the International Society of Bassists, Korb was artistic director for the 2013 ISB Convention in Rochester, NY (Eastman School of Music).

Kristin tours across the world and has performed with jazz artists such as Llew Matthews, Kim Richmond, Pete Christlieb, Jeff Hamilton, Alex Riel and Jan Lundgren.

She now lives in Denmark with her Danish husband. When she’s not playing music, Kristin enjoys going to the gym, maintaining her position as family salad ninja, and exploring the world of wine tasting through travel.

 

Andy studied Jazz Perfomance at The University of North Texas. Currently Andy is a member of Poncho Sanchez’s Latin Jazz Band and can been seen touring all over the world with Poncho. He also tours with or has toured with Big Bad VooDoo Daddy, Natalie Cole, Christopher Cross, John Heard, Christian McBride, Jane Monheit, New York Voices, Ray Price, Dewey Redman, Steve Tyrell, and Ernie Watts. Andy has recorded or performed in concert with John Abercrombie, Mike Barone, Gary Bartz, Terence Blanchard, Arthur Blythe, Debby Boone, Randy Brecker, Bobby Caldwell, Charo, Alvin Chea, Pete Christlieb, The Coasters, Ravi Coltrane, Larry Coryell, Jon Fedchock, The Four Freshmen, Terry Gibbs, Gerry Gibbs, Tom Harrell, Jon Hendricks, Bill Holman, Flaco Jimenez, Lainey Kazan, Sally Kellerman, Azar Lawrence, Hubert Laws, Dave Liebman, Don Menza, Roy McCurdy, James Moody, Emilio Navaira, Willie Nelson, Wayne Newton, Andreas Oberg, Alan Paul, The Platters, Kim Richmond, Sam Rivers, Christian Scott, Bobby Shew, Lew Soloff, Mike Stern, Take Six, Clark Terry, Steve Turre, and Bill Watrous. Andy currently resides in Los Angeles and teaches Jazz Piano at California State University Long Beach.

“A delightful collection by DAVE TULL. He writes songs that are often laugh-out-loud funny, and others that are of a more serious nature. He is original, entertaining and provides a wonderful escape from the routines of daily life, while putting some of them in a humorous context.” — Joe Lang at Jersey Jazz

CalJAS Presents: MUNDELL LOWE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Last Sunday, March 4, I had the great honor to posthumously award the California Jazz Arts Society’s first Lifetime Achievement Award, to composer, director, jazz educator, and jazz guitar master, Mundell Lowe. The award had been announced last spring, and Mundell was well aware that he was the recipient. However, due to his illness at the time, the ceremony had to be delayed, but was unfortunately never able to be rescheduled before his death in December.

Adam Lowe, Mundy’s son accepted the award for his father.

Celebrating the music of Mundell Lowe’s career were guitarists Frank Potenza, Ron Eschete, vocalists Becky Hughes, Dewey Erney, and myself. Bassist Luther Hughes also acted as the event host.

CalJAS PRESENTS: Rebecca Kilgore-Dave Tull-Joe Bagg-Tom Wakeling

REBECCA KILGORE

As an interpreter of classic American popular songs from the 1930s and 1940s, vocalist and guitarist Rebecca Kilgore helped revive the hits of yesterday for modern-era jazz audiences. Born in Waltham, MA, in 1949, she relocated to Portland, OR, at the age of 30, beginning her music career fronting an area swing band dubbed the Wholly Cats and recording a 1982 LP titled Doggin’ Around. Following the group’s 1984 breakup, she formed her own unit, the Rebecca Kilgore Quintet, which quickly emerged as a mainstay of the Northwest jazz scene, and in 1989, she released the cassette-only I Hear Music. Most of Kilgore’s subsequent recordings were in conjunction with other performers: In 1990, she teamed with John Miller for Put on a Happy Face, and in 1993 appeared with Portland’s Tall Jazz Trio on their Plays Winter Jazz disc. However, Kilgore’s most fruitful collaborations were in conjunction with pianist Dave Frishberg; after teaming for 1993’s Looking at You, they reunited a year later for I Saw Stars, followed in 1997 by Not a Care in the World and again in 2001 with The Starlit Hour. At the same time, Kilgore also fronted a ’60s-style country band, Beck-a-Roo, and in 1994 contributed vocals to the score of the CBS animated special Tales From the Far Side, inspired by the popular Gary Larson comic strip. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
