Exodus To Jazz: The Helen Sung Quintet - THIS CONCERT IS BEING RESCHEDULED, NEW DATE TBA.
Helen Sung finally returns to Rochester leading her quintet in a CD release concert for "Anthem for a New Day", her sixth album. Her first CD on Concord Records
"represents a full blossoming of Sung's talentsas a pianist, band leader, arranger and writer. Not that Sung has turned her back on her classical experience. You can hear it in her take on Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing,)" which doesn't swing much, but does indeed showcase her classically tinged technique. And the album's opener, "Brother Thelonious".. features a crisp Sung piano solo that revs into high gear for some "piano banging" of the highest and most technically-proficient order".
- DAN MCCLENAGHAN
Sung's fourth Exodus To Jazz series engagement, promises be a wonderful opportunity to rediscover Sung as she shares her recent self-discoveries reflected in the critically and popularly acclaimed "Anthem for a New Day".
