JOHN BEASLEY & DWIGHT TRIBLE (8:00pm)
Dwight Trible – voice
John Beasley – piano

DWIGHT TRIBLE is a singer who combines the best of vocal virtuosity with musicianship and improvisational skills to the delight of audiences and musicians alike. In addition to performing with his group, The Dwight Trible Ensemble, Dwight is the vocalist with the Pharoah Sanders Quartet and the vocal director for the Horace Tapscott Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra.

The Los Angeles Times has aptly summarized the essence of the pianist in one sentence: “JOHN BEASLEY, the one-time keyboardist for Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis, whose playing reflects a variety of generational influences, incorporating the emphatic chordal clusters of Herbie Hancock, the rhythmic quirkiness of Monk and the lush intelligence of Art Tatum into a highly refined personal voice.”


YOUN SUN NAH with ULF WAKENIUS (9:00pm)
Youn Sun Nah – vocals
Ulf Wakenius – guitar

Youn Sun Nah is well regarded for her remarkable vocal prowess. The Korean jazz vocalist’s ability to present each song in her own unique style filled with emotion and passion has consistently captured her audience in attentive silence, ending with roaring appreciation. Her artistry traverses the vocal spectrum effortlessly to the extent where she’s not just another vocalist, she’s a musical instrument.

In 2005, French magazine “Le Monde” described her as “A UFO touching the universe of jazz with a magnificent voice and passionate originality”. Growing up in a musical family where her father was a conductor and her mother a musical actress, music has always been in her life. YSN eventually began her own musical journey and made her first debut at the tender age of 23 at a joint concert collaborating with the Korean Symphony Orchestra. The performance was her stepping-stone into the Korean music scene.

Though YSN was making waves in the Korean music scene, she decided to move to Paris in 1995 to study jazz and chanson. Striving for only the best, she enrolled herself into the CIM Jazz School, one of the oldest jazz schools in Europe. She also studied at the National Music Institute of Beauvais as well as the Nadia and Lili Boulanger Conservatory. At the turn of the millennium, she founded her first Parisian quintet, while it has won a special jury prize at the national jazz competition of the Festival de la Défense. The first of a long list (Jazz Vocal Award from the Académie du Jazz in France, Korean Music Award, Echo Award in Germany …) to one that will be even decorated in 2009 with the insignia of “Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres” by the French Ministry of Culture.

In 2013, the Korean government awarded her with a special prize for her contribution to popular culture and the arts. She also gives lessons and master classes at universities and high schools throughout the United States - including NYU, UMASS Amherst, Jazz Camp West, University of Alaska, Elon University, University of Southern Florida, West Virginia University, Berkeley Jazz School, University of the Pacific, UC Berkeley and the University of Maryland. She has been featured in DRUM magazine, Downbeat, Jazz Times, Modern Drummer, Drummer UK, Jazziz, Yamaha All Access 360, TomTom Magazine, Traps, All About Jazz NY, and Female Musician magazine.

This concert is presented by The Jazz Bakery.
