With World Renowned Music Shop Roberto's Winds on May 31
Featured JLP Artists Include
Guitarist Yotam and Alto Saxophonist Sharel Cassity
The first sponsored evening will feature a variety of JLP artists. The first set at 8pm will showcase Israeli guitarist Yotam (full name Yotam Silberstein), who will release Resonance on May 4. A second set at 10pm will feature alto saxophonist Sharel Cassity, performing in support of her recent September release, Relentless.
Trombonist and JLP artist Steve Davis will join Yotam. Davis released Eloquence on the label in September and is also a member of the all-star hard-bop collective One For All, who released Incorrigible on JLP (April 6).
Trumpeter Greg Gisbert and trombonist/JLP artist Michael Dease will perform with Cassity. Dease is gearing up to release his label debut, Grace, in June.
The house rhythm section for the evening will feature pianist Roy Assaf, founder and JLP president, veteran bassist John Lee and drummer Ulysses Owens Jr.
JLP's mission is to fill a jazz void by recording the under documented and undocumented while celebrating jazz heritage and the music's future.
"So many artists who had deals before haven't been re-signed, which means there's important music that's going undocumented," says Lee. "This is a great moment in jazz history, and it would be tragic if that music gets lost."
Other releases for the label include Cyrus Chestnut's Spirit (August 4), the Heath Brother's Endurance (August 4),
JLP will continue their sponsorship of the series on the last Monday of each month, including: June 28, July 26 and August 30.
