Carl Woideck Jazz Heritage Project: The Music of Benny Golson

Benny Golson? Who? Just one of the most prolific composers of jazz. If you’ve heard the songs “Along Came Betty,” “Blues March,” “I Remember Clifford,” “Stablemates” or “Whisper Not,” you’ve heard the music of Benny Golson. If you remember the 2004 Tom Hanks movie The Terminal, you’ve SEEN Benny Golson. And Benny, whose 90th birthday is January 25th, 2019, is still composing and performing as a bandleader. Golson’s highly literate autobiography, Whisper Not, was published in 2016.

Carl Woideck’s quintet (Paul Krueger (trumpet), Torrey Newhart (piano), Sean Peterson (bass), and Ken Mastrogiovanni (drum set) will perform a wide-ranging set of Benny Golson classics from dating from 1955 to the 21st century. If you like swinging, emotional jazz, this concert is for you.

All ages. Students free!

Carl Woideck Jazz Heritage Project: Perfectly Frank

Vocalist Frank Sinatra was a master at choosing timeless songs for his albums and singles. Well before anyone used the term Great American Songbook, he created a repertoire that went a long way to creating that musical canon that stands today. This concert will feature instrumental versions of songs from Sinatra's recordings with Tommy Dorsey ("Without A Song") and Harry James ("All Or Nothing At All") to selections from Frank's own "concept albums" (Come Fly With Me, Songs For Swingin' Lovers, and more).

Carl Woideck and his group (Paul Krueger (trumpet), Torrey Newhart (piano), Sean Peterson (bass), and Ken Mastrogiovanni (drum set) will be sure to include some classics by Sinatra's favored composer, Jimmy Van Heusen.

All ages, students free!

Carl Woideck Jazz Heritage Project

John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk often composed and performed pieces in jazzy swing grooves but rarely wrote pieces in specific Latin rhythmic grooves like Rumba, Samba, Cha Cha Cha, Boléro, or Bossa Nova. But if you love jazz, you won't be surprised to hear that their compositions often lend themselves to interpretation with a Latin tinge. Carl and friends will be revisiting classics by Miles, Monk, and Trane, plus a taste of pieces by Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter.

Free student tickets.

Halie Loren Quartet with Ballet Fantastique: An American Christmas Carol

Ballet Fantastique’s sparkling holiday tradition, An American Christmas Carol, returns for 2017! Donna and Hannah Bontrager have re-imagined Charles Dickens’ beloved story in iconic post-WWII America with their original choreography set to the velvet voice of international chart-topping jazz singer—and Oregon sweetheart—Halie Loren. Retro-glam choreography fuses drama and humor as it weaves the story of penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformative quest.

Loren (double-nominated for multiple Independent Music Awards) sets the score with her winsome original arrangements of standards by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole. Actor Adam Goldthwaite joins the company as “Smokey Joe” Marley. Ballet Fantastique’s flagship American Christmas Carol is for the young and young at heart (post-sugarplum set included), and it promises to charm even the stoniest of humbug hearts.

Carl Woideck Quintet: The Uncovered Miles Davis

Miles Davis was not only a trumpeter and a bandleader; he was also a composer. Davis pieces like "So What", "All Blues" and "Milestones" have been covered—in other words, re-recorded—by hundreds if not thousands of jazz musicians. For this concert, Carl Woideck and friends will instead explore some of Miles Davis' seldom-covered compositions, focusing on the years 1967 and 1968. Among the pieces will be "Fun", "Water On The Pond", and the centerpiece of the concert, the epic "Circle In The Round". This was time that Davis was experimenting with using alternative keyboards like celeste and electric piano, and for the first time, adding a guitar to his basic group. Join saxophonist Woideck, trumpeter Tony Glausi, guitarist Michael Radliff, keyboardist Torrey Newhart, bassist Sean Peterson, and drummer Adam Carlson for an unforgettable night of rare Miles Davis.

This concert is eligible for The Shedd's Free Shedd Jazz Student Ticket program, which makes a limited number of free tickets to 2016-17 Shedd jazz concerts available to students elementary through college. The program is made possible by a grant from Chamber Music America and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Contact The Shedd Ticket Office for information.
