MAM is excited to announce an updated artist roster. There have been some significant developments that we wanted to share with you. As usual, we’ve divided the artists in two categories: Classical and Jazz. Perhaps we’ll stop doing that in the future, since it is such an imperfect way to pigeon-hole the work of these great musicians.
Oh, and don’t forget to join the Directory of Teaching Artists, it’s free!
The Kaleidos Duo released a CD for the second year in a row: Italy’s “Generation of 1880″ and Their Disciples. After their switch to Romeo Records, they are busier than ever with a positive review in The Strad (August 2014). Both Hristov and Valjarevic are university professors with decades of teaching experience and accomplished students worldwide.
We heard about flutist Sarah Robinson and her Helix Collective, through her fascinating doctoral thesis Chamber Music in Alternative Venues in the 21st Century U.S.. She is a co-founder of the LA chapter of the famous movement Classical Revolution. Helix Collective is now available for one-of-a-kind concerts, masterclasses, and lectures.
Marvin Stamm and Claudio Roditi are two esteemed jazz trumpeters, though their musical worlds are distinct and representative of unique moments in the history of Jazz. They do not really need an introduction from us, so feel free to read more about them on the Artist page.
Ralph Lalama is a solid fixture of the New York jazz scene and respected world-wide. With teaching and performing engagements all over the US, his musical expertise and connection with “the Beat” is highly valued by students and their professors.
Yaron Gershovsky is widely recognized as a gifted musician, whose impressive credits demonstrate versatility and excellence as a performer, arranger, composer, and producer. A Summa Cum Laude graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Gershovsky is the long-standing musical director and pianist/keyboardist of the world-renowned vocal group The Manhattan Transfer.
Boling, Brown & Holloway: three brilliant musicians whose award-winning recordings have been deemed to “equal or surpass in many respects those of major labels.” Slowly distilling their very own brand of Tennessean jazz, the members of this “explorative Knoxville jazz group” are Mark Boling (guitar), Keith Brown (drums), and Rusty Holloway (bass).
