This summer represents our 30th Season of doing Marblehead Summer Jazz
and for the occasion we are "coming full circle" one more time, 
presenting the first three performers we presented in 1985 --
 

Makoto Ozone, Greg Hopkins and Rebecca Parris.
 
Completing the roster is one of our all time favorites,
Karrin Allyson.

Friday, July 18, 8 p.m.

Makoto Ozone

"Makoto is among a select few jazz musicians who have become a major presence on the world stage... If you haven't caught up with Ozone yet, now's the time."

--52nd Street

 " ...a stunning example of complete knowledge and mastery of the full jazz piano spectrum."

--Ron Wynn,  Allmusic.com

Karrin Allyson

"Her show, whose selections change with every set, is a celebration of a 13-album career that is one of the most stable in jazz. She has an easy mastery of bebop, bossa nova, chanson and soft rock, to name four of the many styles in which she is comfortable.  A hallmark of Ms. Allyson’s performances is her casual attitude toward phrasing and interpretation. In her unstudied approach she is a cheerful, gamin roustabout hanging out with the guys...." - Stephen Holden NY Times

The Cryogenic Renaissance Orchestra
AKA:
Greg Hopkins Nonet

This mini big band is homage to three brilliant jazz nonets from the past and more. With a repertoire that includes several original arrangements from the influential “Birth of the Cool” recordings, this band might appear to be a mere recreation of the Davis nonet. Yet that legendary unit of the late ‘40s is only one of the models that have inspired this new unit. Also identified are two Blue Note albums from the late ‘60s, McCoy Tyner’s “Tender Moments” and Herbie Hancock’s “The Prisoner,” as specific inspirations.  With that historic nod in mind, jazz composer and arranger Greg Hopkins has created yet another body of works for the same instrumentation in his own unique and original voice ...

Alongside Hopkins, other luminaries in the group are:

Pianist Tim Ray
Drummer Bob Gullotti
Bassist
Keala Kaumeheiwa
Trombonist Jeff Galindo
French hornist Ken Pope
Tubist Greg Fritze
Saxophonists Shannon LeClaire and Allan Chase.
