GABRIEL ALEGRIA  AFRO-PERUVIAN JAZZ SEXTET image
Much like the popularity achieved by Brazilian and Afro-Cuban music when it first came to the United States, the Afro-Peruvian sound, complete with cajones and zapateo dancing, is the latest sound to come to the jazz world. 12/8 polyrhythms over 6/4 time and many other fascinating rhythmic formulas are at the core of Afro-Peruvian jazz music and infuse the performances with a vitality and strength unparalleled in contemporary jazz expression.

Gabriel Alegría is a leading figure in the world jazz music scene and his tour is sponsored by AIJP, IAJE and the Peruvian Ministry of Culture.   www.gabrielalegria.com

6:00PM  ARTISTS’ SALON

This is a monthly opportunity for artists associated with the cafe--from every genre and every generation, past, present, and future--to gather informally, schmooze, re-invent the world, and hoist a glass of quelque chose (the only kind of chose to hoist). Our glorious curators are present, you can buttonhole them to find out what's cooking, you can introduce yourself to other toilers in the vineyard, invent projects and discover collaborators. All are welcome.

 Carlo DeRosa Quartet image
After a successful return to leading his own group last November, Carlo DeRosa will be performing at The Cornelia Street Café. This promises to be another great night of music and the stellar ensemble will once again bring the bassist’s original compositions to life. Their collective musical credentials reads like a “Who’s Who of Jazz.”

Performing at many music festivals, clubs and concert halls around the world, Carlo DeRosa collaborates with many great artists and projects including: Dave Allen, Ravi Coltrane, Chembo Corniel and Grupo Chaworo, Tyshawn Sorey, Sam Newsome, Vijay Iyer, Agrazing Maze with Allison Miller and Ingrid Jensen, Justin Flynn, Lucian Ban, Victor Prieto and Rudresh Mahanthappa. He has had the opportunity to work with jazz luminaries such as Ed Thigpen, John Scofield, Nick Brignola, Mickey Roker, Bruce Barth, Warren Bernhardt, Ray Barretto, Bertha Hope, and George Garzone. Proficient, creative, clearly an in demand bassist, Carlo DeRosa is earning a reputation of very high standards.

Mark Shim was an integral part of bands led by jazz legends Betty Carter and Elvin Jones. At the same time he is comfortable exploring the contemporary and modern jazz concepts of Michele Rosewoman and the “New Directions” band with Greg Osby, Stefon Harris and Jason Moran.

Luis Perdomo has displayed his talents as a regular member of groups led by John Benítez, Miguel Zenón, Ray Barretto and Ravi Coltrane. His work with artists such as John Patitucci, Claudia Acuna, Dave Samuels and Butch Morris adds to a list that is notable through its quality and diversity.

Derrek Phillips currently plays with the Charlie Hunter Trio. Having worked regularly with a diverse group of artists including: Ronny Jordan, Greg Osby, Michele Rosewoman, Liberty Ellman, Jason Moran, Sam Newsome and Vijay Iyer among others, he has carved out an exciting musical career.

8:30PM  SKYE STEELE GROUP
Skye Steele, violin;  Christopher Hoffman, cello;  Mike Effenberger, piano;  Mike Savino, bass;  John Hadfield, drums/percussion
Skye Steele Group image
Skye Steele’s group bears the mark of its leader’s strong balance between the eclecticism of his experiences as a side-man and the strident individualism of his approach to the violin. His arrangements bring American popular songs of his own generation crashing head-on with influences ranging from Turkish Gypsy music, to Afro-Brazilian, to French Impressionism, all with a rigorous Modern Jazz aesthetic (he taps Simon and Garfunkle, Sesame Street, Satie, and Willie Wonka). Skye’s own compositions combine driving, angular rhythms and darkly nuanced harmonies with an infectious sense of lyricism. “My goal is always to engage and transport the people with every tune and every solo.”

“Steele makes his instrument sing joyously”
