AN EVENING WITH ROOSEVELT COLLIER, REED MATHIS, EDDIES ROBERTS, JOHN STATEN, JENNIFER HARTSWICK & NATALIE CRESSMAN
This line-up is ridiculous. Come rage with us the night before Warren Haynes Christmas Jam starts!!

ROOSEVELT COLLIER (The Lee Boys):

Soft-spoken by nature, south Florida-bred Roosevelt Collier does his hollering on the sacred steel guitar. Brought up in the tradition of the House of God Church, Roosevelt built his reputation alongside his uncles and cousins in The Lee Boys, known for their spirited, soul-shaking live performances. Seated front and center, "The Dr." leaves an indelible mark on listeners, flooring audiences with his lightning-fast slide work on the pedal steel. At festivals, he is a regular "Artist at Large," performing alongside many of music's most prestigious acts, from the Allman Brothers, to the Funky Meters, to Los Lobos to the Del McCoury Band. Whether on tour with the Lee Boys, bouncing from stage to stage at festivals, or hosting an allstar get down in Miami, when Roosevelt takes the stage, the ear-to-ear grins can't help but be contagious.

REED MATHIS (Tea Leaf Green):

Reed Mathis is an American composer, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist from Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is highly regarded for his innovative use of effected bass as well as his stylistic versatility. He records and tours with Tea Leaf Green, the Marco Benevento Trio, amongst other artists, and was a founding member of the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, a group he co-led for fifteen years.

EDDIE ROBERTS (New Mastersounds):

Eddie started his music career proper in 1989 aged 18, having left his Welsh homeland to study Jazz at Leeds College of Music. More interested in live performing and getting his own thing going than in college work, he quickly rooted out the best players in town and set up his first band, The Jazz Mailmen, dedicated to playing the golden era of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers.

In 2007 Eddie paid his first visit to New Orleans, with The New Mastersounds. The band played three shows over the first weekend of Jazzfest, but while the others went home, Eddie stayed on for an extra week and found himself guesting with a host of jazz and funk artists at late-night shows around the city including Galactic, Papa Mali, Johnny Vidocavitch, Idris Muhammed, The Greyboy Allstars. Later that summer Eddie joined Stanton Moore's trio for a festival gig, alongside keyboard wizard Robert Walter.

At time of writing Eddie has recently completed ?Plug & Play? the The New Mastersounds? fifth studio album, and has just been hired to produce an album for French funk/afrobeat outfit Shaolin Temple Defenders.
Never one to sit back and put his feet up, Eddie tells us that the follow-up to Roughneck ? provisionally entitled ?Volume 2? ? can be expected later this year, and will feature collaborations with vocalists Leigh Kenny and Rhianna Kenny, vocalists with stadium techno act Faithless.

JOHN STATEN (Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Pimps of Joytime):

JENNIFER HARTSWICK (Trey Anastasio Band):

Jennifer Hartswick is one of the most exciting performers in music today. She inspires audiences all over the world with her powerful voice and commanding trumpet playing. She exudes confidence and joy and brings her own refreshing spirit to the stage every time she performs. Jennifer's music is honest, soulful and comes with a maturity far beyond her years.

Jennifer's live performances are renowned as spontaneous, joyful and contagious. Her natural charisma and sincerity shines through, and each performance is a celebration of musical collaboration; the camaraderie between Jennifer and her band mates is always visible. And whether she is wailing on the trumpet or singing an intimate vocal solo, her performance is all part of a single seamless instrument, one that is played not only with astounding technical proficiency, but also with sensitivity, conviction and heart.

Born in Vermont into a musical family, Jennifer began playing music at the age of four. As a teenager she became infatuated with the sounds of Oscar Peterson, Clifford Brown and Ella Fitzgerald. She lived and studied in New York City before attending the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, CT, where she studied the intricacies of the jazz idiom with Jackie McLean, Nat Reeves, Steve Davis and many other prominent jazz artists.

At the age of 20, having already recorded on two albums with Trey Anastasio (Story of the Ghost, Phish, 1998, and One Man's Trash, Trey Anastasio, 1998), Jennifer was asked to join Anastasio's new band. She has been an integral part of the band for the last ten years touring internationally and sharing the stage and studio with such legends as Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and Herbie Hancock. She has also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, Austin City Limits, and many more.

Jennifer performs regularly with jazz, gospel and rock ensembles around the country. The Jennifer Hartswick Band has released a bran

NATALIE CRESSMAN (Trey Anastasio Band):

Hailing from an illustrious musical family, Natalie Cressman, the San Francisco-raised trombonist, vocalist and composer has been adopted by a disparate cast of masters, and at 21 years old she's honed a preternaturally worldly conception of her own.

From Carnegie Hall to the House of Blues, from the Apollo to Lincoln Center, her versatility and enthusiasm for new music has propelled her into a richly diverse musical career. An accomplished improviser who has performed with Nicholas Payton, Wycliffe Gordon, and Peter Apfelbaum's NY Hieroglyphics Ensemble, she's gained her widest exposure through two years of touring with Phish's Trey Anastasio. At the same time she's managed to excel in her studies at Manhattan School of Music and perform at top New York jazz spots with her own band. Unfolding captures her rapidly blossoming sensibility, a sound shaped by her love of Cuban, Brazilian and West African music, indie rock, funk and the post-bop continuum.

Whether playing an original, reinterpreting a standard or exploring a jazz classic, Cressman fully embraces the imperative to render the music in her own image. What her work with Secret Garden reveals is an utterly contemporary artist steeped in several traditions, an artist who sees no barriers between the incalculable accomplishments of the past and the urgent demands of the present. While Cressman possesses a highly expressive voice on trombone, smooth and gleaming one minute and gruff and earthy the next, the album's biggest surprise is her crystalline singing voice, a thing of jaw- dropping beauty. Cressman is an artist endorser for King Trombones.
