Description

April 8, 2014: Kazumi Watanabe
Kazumi Watanabe lives up to his name as the Japan’s world-class, top jazz guitarist. His quick tempo weaves fascinating ad libs and affluent melodies; he has been noted for elaborately combining various performing techniques and infusing rich expressive power to each and every note to create a one-of-a-kind “Kazumi Sound”. He has made the world his stage for over 40 years, transgressing genres and borders to perform with an outstanding number of domestic and international artists. The natural-born improviser also builds a unique world of composition and arrangements, always pioneering frontier instrumental music.

April 9-10, 2014: Dionne Farris With The Russell Gunn Quartet
Dionne Farris is an American female R&B/soul musician who sang on three songs with the hip hop group Arrested Development. In 1995, she had a solo hit single called “I Know”, which hit No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Trumpeter/multi-instrumentalist Russell Gunn was born and raised in Illinois; weaned on rap, he turned to jazz in his professional pursuits, although hip-hop remained a primary influence on his work. First attracting the attention of critics and audiences through his contributions to Wynton Marsalis’ Blood on the Fields, Gunn also backed the likes of Jimmy Heath, Roy Hargrove, James Moody, and R&B hitmaker Maxwell.
