Rapidly rising Guitarist hits the stage at Nighttown! Featuring music from his new CD "Infinite Loop".
Featuring: Brandon Coleman-guitar, Noah Preminger-sax, Matt Wiles-bass, & Jeff Mellott-drums.
Having been called a “wonderful composer” and “sophisticated player” as well as “one of the most unique guitar voices to emerge over the last decade”, Brandon Coleman is rapidly becoming the Midwest’s foremost jazz guitarist.
Coleman performs and composes music that is intricate, personal, and cinematic, inspired by his musical idols and his roots in the Appalachian mountains.
As a jazz musician, Coleman regularly performs with his own groups, The Brandon Coleman Quartet and Trio, the NYC-based Sam Blakeslee Quintet and the Randy Villars Band amongst countless other projects.
Coleman has performed at notable venues including – but not limited to – The Blue Wisp Jazz Club, Bop Stop, BluJazz+, Bar Next Door, 55 Bar, Rudy's Jazz Room, Club Bonafide, and Merriman’s Playhouse. His festival appearances include the Loja Jazz Festival (2012) in Loja, Ecuador, the 2014 CBGB Festival in NYC, and the 2014 and 2016 Columbus Jazz & Rib Fests. He has shared the stage with numerous jazz luminaries, including JD Allen, Noah Preminger, Bucky Pizzarelli and Bill Dobbins.
As a clinician, Coleman has performed masterclasses for universities throughout the Americas including, among others, UNAH-VS (San Pedro Sula, Honduras), UNAH (Tegucigalpa, Honduras), UDLA (Quito, Ecuador), Universidad de Loja (Loja, Ecuador), West Virginia State University, Morehead State University, University of Virginia, and Belmont University.
Noah Preminger, just 30, has recorded numerous critically acclaimed albums and is steadily listed as one of the best tenor saxophonists by critics and readers on the annual Downbeat Poll. Two new recordings were released in 2016, including an all-ballads date on the French vinyl label, Newvelle Records, and a recording inspired by Delta Mississippi Blues musicians, Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground. On Inauguration Day, 2017, Preminger will release his 7th album as a bandleader, Meditations On Freedom, as a musical protest at ominous political developments in America.
Born in 1986, Preminger grew up in Canton, Connecticut. Preminger released his debut album, Dry Bridge Road, just after his 21st birthday and was named Debut of the Year in the Village Voice Critics Poll. Preminger’s second and third albums as a leader came in 2011 and 2013 while signed to the Palmetto Records label. The Boston Globe says ,“Tenor saxophonist Preminger – a master with standards and ballads, as well as an adventurous composer … Preminger lets a little Ornette into his sound to join Coltrane and Rollins.” The saxophonist has performed on key stages from the United States to Europe and Australia, and he has played and/or recorded with the likes of Billy Hart, Dave Holland, John Patitucci, Fred Hersch, Dave Douglas, Rob Garcia, Joe Lovano, Victor Lewis, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Cecil McBee, George Cables, Roscoe Mitchell, and Dr. Eddie Henderson.
