DRED SCOTT TRIO

Dred grew up in St. Louis and went to college in Ohio to study piano and composition with Pat Pace. But it is the San Francisco Bay Area that will always be home. There, he first gained a reputation as an innovative and eclectic pianist and multi-instrumentalist. He has recorded 11 self-produced albums as a leader and has performed on over 50 others. He was co-founder of the ground breaking hip-hop jazz group, Alphabet Soup. He has recorded with Anthony Braxton, Cecil McBee, Andrew Cyrille, Joe Morello, Charlie Hunter, Bob Minter, Dave Samuels, Don Byron, Paul McCandless, Marshal Crenshaw and has performed with Zigaboo Modeliste, Steve Smith, Mike Clark, The Paul Dresher Ensemble, Pete Seager, Arlo Guthrie, Levon Helm, Norah Jones, Moby, Bob Weir, Joe Henderson, The Berkeley Symphony (Kent Nagano), Ricky Lee Jones, Dave Garibaldi, Larry Schneider, Nina Hagen and Peter Apfelbaum.

It is a standard jazz piano trio format - piano, bass and drums. The songs, written during an artist residency at the UCross Foundation in Wyoming, are sublime, perhaps dred's most accessible and gentle writing and playing in his storied career. Dred Scott Rides Alone stands as a mature and melodic statement of life, love and the pursuit of beauty

HANNA GILL

HANNA GILL

Hannah Gill is a soulful 20-year old vocal powerhouse and songwriter whose voice brings to mind soulful performers such as Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey, and Kate Nash.

Her uncommon vocal talent combined with wisdom and maturity in her young age is what sets Hannah apart. With a sound that is alive, fresh and vibrant, and includes a jazz vibe that is crisp and modern - Hannah rises above the created and overdone sound that frequents today's airwaves.

It wasn't long before Gill paired up with producer and musician Brad Hammonds. As soon as Hammonds heard her, he understood that Gill was something special. Gill's vocal sophistication conveys deep emotion without resorting to histrionics or auto tune synthesized vocals.

They were soon on a roll as Gill, accompanied by Hammonds, along with a spare group of double bass, drums and trumpet crooned her way to the effervescent and sparkling sound.

In the studio or onstage, Gill is spontaneous. After all, she notes, "The whole point of music is to experiment."

Her live band – Hammonds [guitar], Mathias Kunzli [drums], Jason DiMatteo [bass] and Matthew Jodrell [trumpet] - brings a wealth of experience with them, ranging from work with Paul Anka to Regina Spektor.

Hannah herself has worked with successful music veterans including four-time Grammy Winner, Brian Vibberts, who produced her debut self-titled EP.

Hannah’s first single from I Feel Awake gained impressive reviews and after debuting through Earmilk is now featured on both MTV and VH1.

Her music video for single I Feel Awake featured in MTVu’s Freshmen competition where Hannah beat off stiff competiton from acts such as the hugely successful Sheppard. Her music video is now in full rotation on their channel.

Every journey begins with a single step, so the proverb goes. Hannah Gill has made hers into a giant leap. -  FROM SONICBIDS

Here she is singing with Post Modern Jukebox:

THE MILK MAN & SONS

The Milkman & Sons is a Brooklyn based band that plays Traditional Blues and Prohibition Jazz. They are known for their ability to take audiences in a musical time machine by playing the music of such varied notables as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Fats Waller, Hoagy Carmichael and Little Walter as well as original music written in a similar style. While the band is always fronted by singer, harmonica player and guitarist, Marcus Milius it usually features violinist, Karl Meyer and bassist, Luc Decker. As a trio they have earned a reputation for artfully creating an intimate ambiance and still being able to bring a room to life with contagious energy.

PATRICK CORNELIUS QUARTET

After 18 years in New York City, alto saxophonist and composer Patrick Cornelius has cultivated a substantial body of work as a composer and bandleader, and performed his original music in some of the world’s top jazz venues. Hailed as “self-assured” and “resourceful” by The New York Times, “Elegant” and “Extraordinary” by DownBeat Magazine (in whose annual Critics Poll he was listed among the “Rising Stars” for the past 4 years), and “Bold and Gifted,” by All About Jazz, Cornelius has released 7 albums featuring established masters (like Jeff Ballard and Frank Kimbrough) and rising stars (including Gerald Clayton, Kendrick Scott, and Miles Okazaki). As a composer, he has earned an array of awards and commissions, including 4 consecutive ASCAP “Young Composer Awards,” and Chamber Music America’s “New Jazz Works” in 2012, and has been commissioned to compose and arrange original music for ensembles across the globe. Cornelius’ latest album, “While We’re Still Young,” draws inspiration from the children’s poetry of A. A. Milne. The music was debuted live on NPR’s “The Checkout Live with Josh Jackson,” and later featured on “JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater.” 

An active music pedagogue, Patrick (who received a Bachelor’s Degree from Berklee College of Music, a Masters Degree from The Manhattan School of Music, and an Artist Diploma from The Juilliard School), has appeared as visiting artist or guest lecturer at many international institutions, including The Royal Academy, the Birmingham Conservatoire, Guildhall, Hull University, Trinity College, and Edinburgh University in the United Kingdom, St. Mary’s University and UTSA in Texas, The Centro Culturale and San Jose University in Costa Rica, The University of North Carolina, The Juilliard School, and Snow College in Utah. He is currently professor of jazz saxophone at Snow College in Ephraim, Utah, and a music faculty member at The United Nations International School in New York City, and lives with his family in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
