In an intimate listening room that combines the refinement of a concert hall with the comfort of a living room, Caffe Lena is devoting the 1st Tuesday of each month to America's most original contribution to the musical palate, JAZZ. This continuing series is hosted by resident composer, pianist and jazz master, Chuck Lamb, with support from music producer Joel Moss. JAZZ at Caffe Lena features collaborations between Lamb and internationally touring jazz artists, as well as many of the Capital Region's best.
----- Chuck Lamb, who has been a member of the Brubeck Brothers Quartet since 2002, is not only an exciting and emotive pianist in his own right, but also a prolific composer of jazz, fusion, classical and world music. Most recently, Chuck and his band have released a CD of his original acoustic fusion music, titled North By Northeast. The CD has been receiving airplay on major jazz stations and garnering new fans and rave reviews worldwide.
----- Lamb's featured guest for the month of December is famed jazz guitarist Vic Juris. In a career that spans nearly a half-century, Juris has played in every format imaginable, including invaluable contributions to the groups of David Liebman and Gary Peacock, a superb guitar duo with Larry Coryell, and as a special guest of the Mingus Big Band. Juris made his recording debut with Saxophonist Eric Kloss in 1975 and has since appeared on more than two hundred jazz recordings. The Guitarist's newest, Vic Juris Plays Victor Young, presents Vic and the trio settling into the works of a Great American Songbook Composer. Tonight's intimate concert will showcase Juris's flowing, warm toned, bop influenced lyricism and his penchant for unbridled swinging.
