Kendra Shank and Art Lande

Kendra Shank and Art Lande

September 20 - 23, 2018

New York vocalist Kendra Shank comes to the Denver/Boulder area for a long-awaited collaboration with Grammy-nominated Boulder pianist Art Lande, guitarist Tim Wendel (Fri, Sun) and bassist Mark Simon (Sat).

Kendra Shank on YouTube

Kendra, whom The New Yorker dubbed "imaginative and daring," thrives on the freshness of new musical connections, so expect a musical adventure of excellence covering a broad range of material including re-imagined standards, originals, open improvisations, and songs by Abbey Lincoln, Fred Hersch and other modern composers.

A wide open, mind-bending celebration of the human spirit.

Toledo Blade

This vocalist makes lyrics believable, invents like an instrumentalist, and has an ear second to none for little-known and unknown tunes. ...Shank is that rarity among jazz vocalists, a risk taker who stays in tune. Her voice is dark and haunting, and she prefers subtle variations to overly demonstrative embellishments. She also functions like a true equal with her excellent rhythm section...

Bob Blumenthal, THE BOSTON GLOBE (Top 10 CD - "Reflections")

Kendra Shank sounds like sunlight shining through a stained-glass window, her crystalline tone illuminating each song. Working her voice like a horn, she phrases inventively, whether crisp and sizzling or sensuously smoky. She's definitely an original...

Kendra, Art and Tim Wendel (guitar)

New York vocalist Kendra Shank returns to Dazzle on Sunday, September 23 for the first time since 2008 in a long-awaited collaboration with Grammy-nominated Boulder pianist Art Lande, joined by guitarist Tim Wendel. The trio’s in-the-moment conversational interplay will draw from a broad range of material: re-imagined standards, originals, open improvisations, and songs by Abbey Lincoln, Fred Hersch and other modern composers. Kendra and Art have known each other for many years and their brief musical encounters in New York gave them the desire for this deeper collaboration at Dazzle. Art and Tim are frequent collaborators and Kendra, whom The New Yorker dubbed "imaginative and daring," thrives on the freshness of new musical connections. "A wide open, mind-bending celebration of the human spirit." --Toledo Blade

A Special House Concert in Boulder

Art Lande Mark Miller Duo
A Night of Improvisations

Lande Miller Duo

Art Lande (piano)
Mark Miller (woodwinds)

In the world of inspiring, mind-blowing, astounding, wondrous, symbiotic, spontaneous creativity of meaningful significance (and irrelevance when that's more apropos), the Art Lande Mark Miller Duo reigns in the most luminary status possible.

Weird and wonderful… a mesmerizing spiritual experience.

-San Francisco Examiner

A perfect gem… Why aren’t these guys more famous?

-Cadence Magazine

It has been too long since just the DUO has performed in public. We are all eager to learn what exactly Mary Ellen Figment has been up to? Have Whippets evolved? Will our Prayers for Germs to infect the useless officials and their Obsessions have significant impact in the next couple years? And most importantly, when is that whale gonna free-up the curb-side parking space?

Be they weird, wonderful and more, join Mark Miller and Art Lande in A Night of Improvisations.

Art Lande Master Classes
Fall Semester 2018, CU School of Music

All classes meet on Fridays, 1:00PM - 3:00PM.
in Macky's Jazz Room (basement, west side).

Oct12Poetry/Music Interaction
Since we don’t have a vocal jazz component at CU, I wanted to bring language into our world as an important and vital element in music. Poems, tune lyrics, prose, and word improvisation are some areas that we will create music with. Bring any inspiring material you have or have written. What are the words that express the feeling of the music? What is the music that helps the language come to life?
Oct19Jazz by Ear
I will teach you a variety of tunes by ear, working with melody, root motion, and inner lead lines. What do we listen for, how do we orient, how do we solo on changes without a chart, how do we remember key events? Do you have a tune you love that you would like to teach us?
Nov09Oregonia - with guest artist, saxophonist/composer Paul McCandless
We will explore the music of the group Oregon that has been touring worldwide and recording extensively since the early 1970s. The compositions by Paul and guitarist Ralph Towner exemplify the intersection of American jazz, European melodic – harmonic language and world music rhythms. We’ll do some listening and play the music together. It’s an amazing universe.
There will be an evening concert at the Muse Performance Space w/Paul, Art Lande and John Gunther
