The Jazz Record Art Collective - Ryan Shultz 5 peforming Bob Brookmeyer and Kenny Wheeler’s 2003 rel

Wednesday, August 17th the Ryan Shultz 5 will be performing Bob Brookmeyer and Kenny Wheeler’s 2003 release ISLAND. “Two giants of modern jazz align for Bob Brookmeyer & Kenny Wheeler Quintet Island… Here, valve trombone master Bob Brookmeyer and trumpet legend Kenny Wheeler project warmth and nuance atop a traditional drums/bass/piano based quintet setting as Wheeler's relatively infamous, yearning lines and climactically constructed lyricism remain consistent throughout. The duo alternates soloing activities while also coalescing for softly stated choruses during these predominately medium-tempo jazz works. On this release, pianist Frank Carlberg provides complementary melodies amid the rhythm section's buoyantly constructed undercurrents. The band pursues sanguine balladry amid the lead soloists' often engaging dialogues, although Wheeler reaches for the stars via a series of nicely articulated high notes on "Upstairs With Beatrice." With this piece, the always-inventive drummer John Hollenbeck peppers his toms in support of the trumpeter's ascending mode of attack… ~Glenn Astarita Ryan Shultz – Bass Trumpet Chad McCullough – Trumpet Paul Mutzabaugh – Keys Daniel Jackson Thatcher – Bass Eric Montzka - Drums "The Jazz Record Art Collective occurs the third Wednesday of every month at the Fulton Street Collective, located at 1821 W.
