John Pizzarelli

John Pizzarelli

World-renowned jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has been called “hip with a wink” by Town & Country, “madly creative” by the Los Angeles Times.

John Raymond Project

John Raymond Project

Labeled “a prepossessing young trumpet player…” (Nate Chinen, New York Times), John Raymond is quickly making a name for himself as an up-and-coming artist to keep an eye on. A featured artist at the 2012 10th Annual FONT Festival (Festival of New Trumpet) and the 2013 Winter Jazz Festival, Raymond has already performed as a leader at some the nation’s top venues including Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, the Dakota Jazz Club, the Jazz Showcase, Smalls Jazz Club and the Blue Note Jazz…

John Scofield

John Scofield

John Scofield is one of the most influential and innovative guitarists of his generation. He has spent the last 40 years blazing a trail through the post-fusion wilderness, bringing his singular voice to a variety of different projects. His hallmark is his masterful improvising, and his music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R&B. Scofield’s resumé reads like a who’s who of the last 40 years of…

John Sebastian

  Over four decades the contributions of John Sebastian have become a permanent part of our American musical fabric. His group The Lovin’ Spoonful played a major role in the mid-’60s rock revolution, incorporating traditional American folk practices into the rock paradigm. John and the Spoonful put their first seven singles into the Top 10, an unprecedented achievement for an American band at the height of Beatlemania. At first they’d taken older…

Johnette Napolitano Bass

Johnette Napolitano

The rock critic had just vomited all over his bed. It was 3:04 a.m. on yet another early morning in 1986 in New York City and the scribe had just come off a three-day benderpalooza of self-prescribed medicines for the wounds of a break-up with a prevaricating witch. He hated his job, he hated his life – and more importantly – he hated rock ‘n’ roll. As he gathered the…

Jon Anderson

Jon Anderson

Jon Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock as the lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes. Anderson was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of epics produced by Yes, and his role in creating such complex pieces as Close to the Edge, Awaken, and especially The Gates of Delirium was central to the band’s success. Additionally, Anderson co-authored the group’s…

Jon Weber

“Jon Weber is a virtuoso, pure and simple.” Jon Weber is best known as the worthy successor to the late Marian McPartland on the NPR staple “Piano Jazz.” He’s at once an exceptional musician as well as a gifted historian and storyteller, and, above all, a true piano polymath. Playing and talking, Mr. Weber takes us through a century of history, making it crystal clear what Fats Waller, Teddy Wilson,…

Jonah Smith

Jonah Smith

New York-based singer-songwriter Jonah Smith has a little bit of everything in his show, elements of jazz, soul and country informing his heartfelt rock music. Steeped in the sounds of the blues, Smith’s sound is too unique to dismiss as kitsch or throwback. His woody, rich voice floats over the warm tones of the Fender Rhodes, evoking heartache and angst and somehow making us feel good about it. This is…
