Josh Thurston Milgrom-bass,
Erik Jekabson-trumpet,
Matt Renzi-winds

"A highly expressive saxophonist who spent his formative years in New York City honing a post-bop sensibility, Patrick Wolff has found his voice arranging and composing for a melodically charged sextet. Featuring a brilliant array of Bay Area talent, the ensembles swoops and glides through Wolff's intricate charts, generating tremendous excitement as serpentine lines diverge and converge to create sumptuous harmonies." - Andrew Gilbert

patrickwolffmusic.com

Tom Rigney & Flambeau plus Dance Lesson with Ted Sherrod

He may have been crowned Emperor of the 2011 Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, but violinist-fiddler-composer and singer Tom Rigney and his band Flambeau have always been royalty at Ashkenaz. When not globetrotting - last year they covered ground from Alaska to Alviso Slough to a Caribbean New Year's cruise - they hold court here almost monthly, playing Rigney's own tunes and their usual high-energy mix of Louisiana Cajun, zydeco, New Orleans R&B, and down-home blues favorites. Some songs are pulled from the recent CD/DVD recorded at the Harris Center for the Arts in Folsom, "Swamp Fever - Live at Three Stages," whose video was part of the 2015 PBS series "Music Gone Public." Featured songs range from "Iko Iko" to "Orange Blossom Special" and "C'est la Vie."


What sets Rigney and Flambeau apart is Rigney's fresh musical takes on Cajun and zydeco, and other styles he loves to play from rock to classical, creating a celebration of life through dance rhythms. Flambeau is a tight ensemble of virtuoso musicians, with guitarist Danny Caron (Charles Brown's bandleader; he and Rigney met when both backed up Rockin' Sidney in the '80s), boogie-woogie keyboardist Caroline Dahl, bassist and singer Steve Parks, and drummer Brent Rampone.

Doors open 7:30 pm / Dance Lesson with Ted Sherrod at 8:00 pm / Show at 8:30 pm
Tickets are $12 Advance / $15 Day of Show

May 28, 8pm to 11:30pm, Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center, 1317 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley

The Freight Singers

The Freight Singers are a new community chorus based at the Freight and Salvage led by Zoe Ellis and Bryan Dyer. The chorus introduces singers to music from a variety of cultures inside the U.S. and around the world with an emphasis on traditional/roots music. Participants learn about the historical and cultural context of the music, as well as the style and technique.


Zoe Ellis has been singing all her life. Starting in elementary school with light opera, she moved on to gospel, R & B, soul, hip-hop, and house music. She added a capella improvisation to her repertoire when she joined SoVoSo and Keith Terry's Slammin All-Body Band. Alongside her brother, jazz saxophonist Dave Ellis, she leads Zadell (Zoe and Dave Ellis), which showcases her original compositions, highlighting both the power and emotion of her voice, and its softer, soul-stirring side. Together they recorded Zoe Ellis: Live at Anna's Jazz Island. She is currently co-lead of Darryl Anders~AgapéSoul and holds a chair with Linda Tillery's Cultural Heritage Choir



Bryan S. Dyer is a multi-talented musician who not only sings but plays and teaches several instruments including bass guitar, percussion and piano; writes and arranges music, conducts choirs and groups, and works in television, radio and film. A veteran of some of the Bay Area's top vocal groups including Street Sounds, SoVoSo, Slammin All Body Band, Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir and CHELLE! and Friends, he also performs with The Funk Revival Orchestra, Rankin Scroo and Ginger, Juke Joint, and the percussion and dance ensemble Crosspulse. For several years, Bryan led the gospel choir at Camp Cazadero, and was also a choir director at Beebe Memorial Cathedral in Oakland for nine years. His musical experiences have him taken around the globe and to many legendary stages including the Montreaux Jazz Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and Lincoln Center in New York. Bryan's talents have landed him alongside such artist as Al Green, Bobby McFerrin, Michael McDonald, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, to name a few. He is also a member of The Recording Academy and a voting member of The Grammy Awards.


The Dynamic Miss Faye Carolw/pianist Joe Warner

Faye Carol is one of the premiere vocalists of her time. Her unique style and gift of connecting with her audience is astonishing. Arranging jazz standards and other popular songs in her own way, is nothing new to Miss Carol. She began this decades ago, well before mixing genres such as hip-hop & jazz were so widely embraced.


Miss Faye has maintained an incredible consistency throughout the decades. As a result, she has successfully reached her initial goal of being a full time artist through many changes in the music industry. She & her late husband Jim Gamble went the independent route before it became popular for artist to make their own records, build a fan base (without a record label), and promote their brand.


Known for her outwardly loving embrace and support of all, Faye Carol remains a conduit for bringing together many communities through music. The founder of The School Of The Getdown, she's effectively developed two programs to serve the bay area community. MITC & The Vocal Workshop Series have triumphantly supported hundreds of youth & adults in becoming more confident & skilled musicians.
