I was a featured artist at the event below. Several very talented  musical theater artists including Christina Aranda, Jennifer Falu, and Stanley Wayne Mathis performed beautifully. I played an Ellington  medley of Satin Doll and Sophisticated Lady in a tribute to former NYC Mayor      David Dinkins. I was accompanied by the Greg Payne Trio and dancer Ms. Jauquette as the Sophisticated Lady. Then Patti LaBelle sang Over The Rainbow and You Are My Friend, backed by the LaGuardia High School Gospel Choir directed by my friend Priscilla Baskerville.  It was completely sold out on a Monday night. No biz like show biz, baby.

Jay Hoggard Quartet,Sistas' Place, Friday March 16th, 2012
http://www.ahmedian.com/blog/
One of the world’s leading vibraphonists, Jay Hoggard, brought his stellar quartet to Sistas’ Place tonight. Band leaders in their own right, the Quartet features James Weidman, piano; Santi Debriano, Bass; and Yoron Israel, drums. Trumpeter, Composer Ahmed Abdullah joins the ensemble in each set. Ahmed was one of the fir...st bandleaders to hire Jay when he returned to New York as a young professional musician in 1977. “We spent many great musical nights performing at the late, great drummer Rashid Ali’s venue Ali’s Alley.”

Jay Hoggard began the set with a song from Guys and Dolls, followed by three of his own compositions each more lyrical and magical than the last. He paused in the middle of the set to explain his presence at Sistas Place in March, traditionally Women’s Month. He then took some time explain his connection to women without whom he observed, we would all be for naught. First , he gave tribute his mother Eva Stanton Hoggard who played piano and grew up with Errol Garner and whose voicings of Errol’s music, Jay absorbed as a youngster. He also paid tribute to two pianists who were also vibraphonists who played with Terry Gibbs, both out of Detroit. One one Alice Mcloud soon to be Alice Coltrane and the other Terrie Pollard, a great vibraphonist now lost in the annals of history. At that point, Ahmed Abdullah who recorded with Jay ” a couple of years ago” aka 1979…. joined Jay on stage to play two songs, the second of which “Life’s Force” pushed the band into a whole other zone.
The second set was equally stunning with Jay experimenting with some new songs and a lively version of Qhude by Ahmed Abdullah.

For those of you who did not make it to Sistas Place on Friday, you have the rare treat of being able to hear this music first hand on Saturday night. For those of you who did , come out again to hear sheer genius at work and to have the opportunity to take home as an exit fee, a touch of that genius on his CD “Solar Power”.

NEW YORK, NY – For Immediate Release 

One of the world’s leading vibraphonists, Jay Hoggard, brings his stellar quartet to Sistas’ Place, 456 Nostrand Avenue in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, on Friday and Saturday, March 16 and 17, at 9:00 pm and 10:30 pm. Band leaders in their own right, the Quartet features James Weidman, piano; Santi Debriano, Bass; and Yoron Israel, drums. Trumpeter, Composer Ahmed Abdullah will  join  the ensemble   in each set . Ahmed was one of the first bandleaders to hire Jay when he returned to New York as a young professional in 1977. “We spent many great musical nights performing at the late, great drummer Rashid Ali's venue Ali's Alley.”  

Sistas’ Place, where “Jazz: A Music of the Spirit Lives and Culture is a Weapon,” is now in its 17th music season. Tickets are $20 with reservations and $25 at the door. For reservations and more information, call (718) 398-1766 or visit www.sistasplace.org.

Hoggard’s music has touched the hearts and souls of listeners around the world for 30 years. The son of a Bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Zion
(AME Zion) Church, he was born in Washington, DC and reared in Mt. Vernon, NY. At age 15, Jay began playing the vibraphone. “One night I had a dream that I was playing the vibes. I asked my father to rent me a set and from the first moment, I knew that this was what I was supposed to do.” Jay majored in the World Music program at Wesleyan University and toured Europe and played at Carnegie Hall during his freshman year. In his junior year, he traveled to Tanzania to study East African xylophone music. After graduation in 1976, Jay returned to New York City where he was proclaimed “the most dazzling new vibraphonist in jazz” by Robert Palmer in the New York Times.

Hoggard draws on traditional and contemporary musical vocabulary to develop new directions for the vibraphone, seamlessly blending jazz and gospel roots with African marimba rhythms. His performance repertoire represents the three B’s of the jazz tradition (Blues, Bop, Ballads) with original innovations. “Solo from Two Sides,” released August 1, 2009 – the latest of his over 20 CDs as a leader and collaborator – is a presentation of 13 compositions performed by the composer on both vibraphone and marimba, by way of digital overdubbing. He has toured the globe to rave reviews, performing throughout the United States, Africa, Europe, South America, the Caribbean and Asia. He led a quintet on an extensive tour sponsored by the US government to North Africa, the Middle East and India.

Jay Hoggard is currently a professor of music at Wesleyan University, where for the past 22 years he has directed the Wesleyan Jazz Orchestra and has taught and mentored hundreds of young musicians including vibraphonists Matt Moran,    Gerry Grosz, Chris Dingman, and Sam Friedman, as well as Mary Halverson,  Steve Lehman, Taylor Ho Bynum, Tyshawn Sorey,Matthew Steckler, and Santigold. 

In addition to the sets at Sistas’ Place, Jay Hoggard will present the World Premiere of Sonic Hieroglyphs from Wood, Metal and Skin at the 11th Annual Wesleyan Jazz Orchestra Weekend at Crowell Concert Hall at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, April 27 - 28 at 8:00 pm.  To perform his compositions, Hoggard will again feature Weidman, Debriano and Israel along with percussionist Kwaku Kwaakye Martin Obeng, woodwindist Marty Ehrlich and harpist Brandee Younger. The multi-part suite is dedicated to the inspiration of Wangari Mathai, the late Nobel Peace Prize recipient from Kenya.  For more information, log on http://www.wesleyan.edu/cfa/events.html.

Mt_Vernon_8-22-10_group.jpg

Remembering Milt Jackson & Cal Tjader                               by Arnie Perez 8/22/2010  

The Bassline was once again the place to be on Sunday August 22nd when VTY Jazz paid tribute to two icons of the vibraphone, Milt Jackson and Cal Tjader. A packed house was on hand to welcome back to Mount Vernon vibraphonist Jay Hoggard, and was he ever up to the task. Surrounding Jay on the Bassline bandstand was bassist Andy Gonzalez, keyboardist Marcus Persiani, drummer Steve Johns and Anthony Carrillo on percussion.

The first tune was a Milt Jackson original that was dedicated to his wife, “Sandra K Jackson”, who by the way, was on hand. You knew immediately that this band was not just going to go through the motions. Not having seen Jay in many years, I was pleasantly surprised to see he hadn’t lost a thing :). The second tune was the classic, “If I were A Bell” written by Frank Loesser. Jay’s sense of harmony was quite evident on this tune. He definitely had that vibraphone sounding as clear as a bell and his interaction with the other members of the band was very reminiscent to this listener of Bobby Hutchinson. When you speak of Bobby you are speaking of Milt. This first set featured so many great tunes that covered a broad spectrum of Jazz and Latin music: Tadd Dameron’s “Lady Bird”, Miles Davis’s “Half Nelson” and “Airegin” (Nigeria spelled backwards) that Sonny Rollins made popular. The band also played Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight”, Mario Bauza’s “Mambo Inn" and the Chano Pozo classic “Manteca”. I loved the medley they did on "Lady Bird" and "Half Nelson" and Anthony and Steve’s playing off one another. You knew the percussion was well taken care of. The first set included seven tunes and each one was worth mentioning, that is why you need to catch this music live and in person. The first set closed with a swinging version of Manteca and they had the fans at the Bassline ready to get up on their feet and start dancing. Just a fabulous set of music played by an equally fabulous group of talented artists.

The second set opened with the Benny Golson original “Whisper Not.” Jay opened up with a beautiful intro and he definitely ran with it from there. His variations on harmonics & rhythm are just so wonderfully used. He is so comfortable on the vibes, you can see the music running through him. After a brief solo by Marcus Persiani, Andy Gonzalez took a solo that I believe was his best of the afternoon. He knows exactly what is needed and his mastery of the bass is something to behold. Jay came back and the group took it out in classic style. They followed “Whisper Not” with the Thelonious Monk composition “Rhythm-A-Ning.” Jay opened with a brief solo followed by Marcus. Anthony Carrillo's solo was a thing of beauty and you could feel he inspired the whole band. Jay and Steve Johns followed that with a very inspired trading of eights before Jay took the Bassline audience on a solo that had him all over the vibraphone.

Then the unexpected happened. Jay called up the beautiful Diva of song, the lovely Ms. Antoinette Montague. She is no stranger to the Bassline audience and is a part of the VTY Jazz family. After her Beyonce entrance, her choice of the Jimmy Van Heusen tune “I Thought About You” was just perfect. Each and every time she hits our stage she is just so inspired and her voice sounds better and better with every appearance. As she once told me after sitting in for the first time at a “Sunday Serenade,” “The bands are so tight I just don’t want to mess things up.” Antoinette Montague tore up “I Thought About You” and I’m sure Jimmy Van Heusen loved her rendition :). The next composition was a medley, one being the Cal Tjader tune “Curacao” and the classical “Ode to Joy.” Once again space will not allow me to give you all the many highlights that were captured during this medley. As the saying goes, “You had to be there.” “Ode To Joy”, as Jay remarked after playing, was learned on the spot by Steve and Jay. Before bringing up the great Puerto Rican trombonist Mr. Papo Vazquez, Jay unbuttoned his shirt to show the audience as well as his band mates the tee shirt he was wearing “Salsa.” Everyone including Jay got a big laugh out of the honorary Puerto Rican of the day “Jay Hoggard” :).

What took place next after bringing up Papo Vazquez was something quite rare. With Andy Gonzalez, Marcus Persiani and Papo Vazquez being on the same stage you had three members of the Manny Oquendo & Libre group. They all collaborated on the Tito Puente composition that was recorded by Cal Tjader, “Picadillo A Lo Puente.” Talk about spontaneous; they all had a ball playing this extended version of “Picadillo A Lo Puente.” Papo being a part of Tito’s band for many years was right at home with this piece. As Jay told me after, “when you have a guy sit in like a Papo Vazquez you are talking about the highest quality of musician that this music has.” That was quite evident with the way they tore Tito’s tune up. They then brought up Steve Johns fourteen year old son Daryl who is quite an amazing talent on bass. Couldn’t help but notice the joy in Andy Gonzalez’s face watching young Daryl on Andy’s bass. They took it out with the Charlie Parker original “Now’s The Time.” Young Daryl met the challenge and his band mates knew this was not your ordinary fourteen year old. He has so much poise for someone his age that it is scary. Papo kept on shaking his head as to what the young man was laying down.     

This tribute to Milt Jackson and Cal Tjader was nothing less than spectacular. To Jay, Andy, Marcus, Steve, Anthony, Papo and Daryl, you sure left something that will be remembered for a lifetime. To the many fans that attended this end of an era concert, we thank you for coming out and making this last Sunday in Mount Vernon so memorable. Great fans deserve great music and we are now headed for East Harlem and we promise you more of the same.
