by BWW News Desk - Apr 15, 2014

Master tenor saxophonist and internationally recognized jazz artist Andres Boiarsky is pleased to announce a special concert to celebrate the release of his new solo album Crosstalk at Shanghai Jazz on Saturday, April 26th. Joining Andres will be Roy Assaf on piano, Curtis Ostle on acoustic bass and Tony Campbell on drums. Released on One Trick Dog Records, the album showcases an accomplished musician at the height of his craft. Crosstalk travels a wide emotional and musical spectrum ranging from straight-ahead jazz with a 70's flair, to world music born out of the unique synthesis of Boiarsky's years spent living in China and Latin America. From compelling originals such as the seductively immersive "Cool You!" or the vibrantly rhythmic "Instant Combustion," to distinctive interpretations of classics such as Chick Corea's "High Wire - The Aerialist,"Andres's refined style ties together an eclectic variety of genres and themes into a cohesive whole.

Drummer/Composer Omar Hakim to Release First Album in 14 Years, WE ARE ONE, 3/3
by BWW News Desk - Feb 28, 2014

With a long and varied list of credits that reads like a Who's Who in Rock and Jazz (Weather Report, Miles Davis, Madonna, Sting, Dire Straits, David Bowie, Daft Punk, among countless others), Omar Hakim has long been regarded as one of the elite drummers on the scene. And because his services have been so in-demand since the '80s, his own solo projects have been few and far between. He debuted in 1989 with the aptly-named Rhythm Deep and followed up in 2000 with The Groovesmith, both of which showcased his writing-arranging skills along with his irrepressible prowess on the kit. Now, 14 years later, comes Hakim's crowning achievement to date. A powerful, genre-defying high energy concept album, We Are One boasts an all-star cast including keyboardist Rachel Z (Wayne Shorter, Peter Gabriel, Al Di Meola), guitarists Chieli Minucci (Special EFX) and Jimi Tunnell (Trilateral Commission) along with keyboardist, co-writer and arranger Scott Tibbs, bassist Jerry Brooks, vocalist Angel Rogers and special guests Gregoire Maret on harmonica and Bob Francheschini on tenor sax. For a few songs on the album, Omar also acts as multi-instrumentalist, performing on guitar, keyboards, bass and vocals. (more...)
