HOPE CLAYTON - SATURDAY AUGUST 30TH - 8PM
The Incredible .... "HOPE
A Superb Listening Experience
Jack Pierson, Piano - Scott Mariash, Drums
Steve Strawley, Trumpet - Fran Corragio, Bass
After having studied classical voice for four years at the music conservatory of Oberlin College and after
having sung with an A Capella chamber group that performed throughout the Washington, D.C. area.. the quest
was on! Studies began! Jazz Vocal techniques with Maria Rodriguez, one D C's best jazz pianist.
With a small combo of Naval Academy Band musicians, Hope Clayton begins her jazz journey. Then
with Charlie Hampton, at the Annapolis Hilton; with Roy Battle and the Altones; with Larry Prascus'
Big Band... Hope Clayton inspired, developed and thrilled audiences as she shared her incredible style and
Hope Clayton's performed in Baltimore, Bethesda, and on Capital Hill. Hear
this exciting Jazz Vocalist as she gives you her "live" take of the collection of favorite songs featured
on her current, outstanding CD!
Saturday Evening, August 30th - 8:00 pm 'til Midnight - $10. Cover 2 Drink
Upright Bass Leads The Way - This Saturday Night August 23rd - 8:00 PM - Live at Jazzland!
Charles Mingus’s audiences never knew quite what they were going to get, and that's what kept them coming.
Mingus was once fired for chasing a trombonist across the stage with an axe. Then there was his reaction
to noisy, inattentive crowds. He'd order his band to read books onstage until there was silence!
Because of Jazzland's first class patronage and their exceptional respect for musicians
... Mike Perez will never have to go that far as he beautifully blurs the boundaries between improvisation and
composition. Just watching Mike's face as he plays leaves you speechless! Sends thrills up your spine! His
solos compares to those of a sultry vocalist ...tearfully at the edge ...on a passionate, personal delivery of
How Exciting! Seldom Seen! Upright Bass as the lead instrument.
Hear the greatness of a fabulous, young jazz musician. Mike delightfully carries the melody like horns or
voice ...on his Bass! Like Mingus... Mike transforms the instrument from a mere time-keeper into an object of attention
in its own right. You'll love the way Mike ignores standard form, uses rapid shifts in mood and tempo.
He might double the tempo, cut it in half, or drop it entirely.... just long enough to make you swoon from an electrifying
sense of expectation and adventure. Listening to him brings his lyric and rhythmic skill to the well deserved front
of Jacksonville's Jazz Scene.

as CAROLE FREEMAN REMEMBERS
- THE THRILL OF ROMANCE
Carole’s unusual material sets her apart as much as her classic noir
styles and luscious delays do. The tunes she’s carefully chosen for this performance are nothing short of wonderful.
Some tunes go back to the 20’s! Carole easily manages those great standards by fine-tuning her pitches and you'll
trace her vocal phrasings back to Sarah, Billie, Ella and Dinah! While Carole uses their examples to
illuminate the possibilities ... she has her own compelling style and keen sense of drama.
You will know how well connected jazz pianist Sean Kirkland, bassist
Mike Perez and drummer Scott Mariash ...are to her sultry style.
This fabulous trio makes every time honored tune, distinctive and brick-solid. Carole makes it all so easy and so much
fun! You get the clear impression they're all having a blast. Age tends to calm folk down so the jazz filled exuberance
Carole Freeman brings to this performance, is well measured to knock you out ...ever so gently!

Bud Powell who was a huge influence of McCoy! I’m submitting that Bud has somehow managed to pass though McCoy

Ryan’s versatility is beautifully displayed through his passionate handling of classic ballads and elevates him

In Recognition of An Outstanding Jazz Musician
Jack Pierson - Master Musician - Jam Session Leader
Jazz piano's Jacksonville legacy wouldn't be what it is today if it weren't for the life, inspiration and
the unique style of Jack Pierson. The Michigan Jazz Festival was dedicated to this outstanding jazz musician in
2004. Jack has performed with Cannonball Adderley, Neil Hefti, Les Elgart! He was the Coordinator of Henry Ford
College Jazz Studies in Detroit and Monteux Switzerland with Donald Byrd, Bunky Green and Nathan Davis!
Like Art Tatum, Jack Pierson is an undeniable inspiration for everyone who
hears his ability to craft unique improvisations while staying true to the original melody and by his swing-inspired
beats. Jack explores elements not typically found in jazz. And like Oscar Peterson, Jack will often spontaneously
introduce the harmonizations of the likes of classical pianist Rachmaninoff into the mix as he creates and controls the
beautiful expansion of his exceptional piano improvisations. A brilliant Jazz Pianist and quite a thrill to hear.
Jack Pierson is an innovator, giving voice to a wordless instrument and composing
with his own technique, re-arranging into new and exciting layouts. He is among the few unique improvisationalist
you can hear with a notable influence on the local jazz evolution. Jack has used unusual scales to his
improvisations, and revolutionized the Jazz Rich .. Jazzland Jacksonville Jam Sessions by his incredible impressions on the
young aspiring jazz musicians who come here and express delight over being able to hear Jack Pierson.

On Saturday, February 1st, The Aaron Lehrian Trio took to Jazzland's stage for what turned out to be one
of the best performances we have ever had the privilege to bring to you! The astonishing part is...these are students! Yet
they played with what Oscar Petersen called the " Five Must Haves".... Touch, Timing, Tone, Talent and Taste, way
beyond their years. They took ONE BREAK!!!! I was reminded of the time I heard Michael Jackson sing ..."Who's Loving
You!" There is no way, I thought...that an eight year old little boy can know how to sing that song with such "understanding"...to
know exactly where to put the "pain and heartache" in a song like that! Well, Aaron Lehrian on Piano - Lamont Kaiser
on Upright Bass and Emily Maddox on Drums returned me to that place! They made my heart and soul sing. They Made Every Struggle,
Every Set-Back, Every Hoop I'm Pushed Through And Every Hurdle I'm Forced To Jump..... Entirely Worthwhile! -Carole Freeman
KINNEY HAROLD JAZZ VIBRAPHONIST - DEBUTS WITH BLUE TOPAZ
Blue Topaz, an outstanding Jazz Ensemble is led by Kinney Harold and features guitarist
Glenn Wallace. Kinney Harold is a fascinating jazz musician. He doesn't always
cling to the dynamic style he's developed. His style is hip, advanced ... he fits in and naturally
embraces any avant garde challenge. Glenn's played for over 48 years with great musicians like: Denis
Fortune, Eddie Simons, Charles Erlend to name a few. He can also be heard on the CD Northbound Jazz Fusion available
Blue Topaz is a perfect blend of creative improvisation, telepathic
responses with intricate and flexible head arrangements. The well constructed tunes utilizes the body of Glenn
Wallace’s guitar as Javion Francis cleverly feeds the chords on the bridge. Glenn solos imaginatively
with Kinney comping sensitively behind him as Ben Adkins on drums, builds a perfect foundation. It's harmonic
sophistication and melodic ingenuity that makes Blue Topaz’ improvisational concept so successful. Kinney Harold, Vibes - Glenn Wallace, Guitar - Javion Francis, Piano - Ben Adkins, Drums

There's Nothing Like It Anywhere Else In Town!
Jazzland is especially proud
of its illustrious All Stars Trio! They are accomplished "All Stars" and distinctively remarkable musicians!
Scott Mariash- Session Leader on Drums is Fabulous! Watching him work is a thrill in itself. - A
prominent drummer on the Chicago jazz scene, many great musicians often sought Scott out as their first choice for a drummer.
This allowed Scott to develop his modern and engaging approach, and apply it to the variety of musical styles to which he
was asked to perform. In 1999 he released his first CD, BREATH" (recorded live to two track at C.E. Mikter Studios).
It is available at CDbaby.com and features Vinson Johnson (reeds), Robert Applebaum (piano), and Michel Cristol (bass). The
"Scott Mariash Trio" performed at various clubs and was the official group for the "Chicago Jazz Club "Delaney
Mike Perez gets everyone's attention
as he plays! He is totally mesmerizing and so good! Even though the bass
is a service instrument, you know what we mean... the word 'base' means support, foundation. If you put up a building,
the foundation must be steady and strong. Can you say Mike Perez??? Mike Perez can identify the chord for everyone
and after that he plays his sweet bippy off! Mike has so much humility. but you won't think of him as
background. The fact of the matter is... he's holding the whole thing together.''
Jazzland welcomes Billy Slais, all the way from Reno, Nevada for a one night performance at
Jazzland …Where The Great Musicians Play!
Billy Slais, a native of Memphis, Tenn. grew musically during the days of STAX/VOLT. Billy is a saxophonist,
songwriter, arranger and keyboardist. He has played with Elvin Bishop, Starship, did session work with Tower of Power
and a member of Cold Blood before moving to Reno. Slais received the Air Force Commendation Medal for entertaining the troops
during his tour of Vietnam. He was formerly the Entertainment Coordinator for the Enoteca Wine Cave at the Siena Casino in
Reno, NV. He tours with Craig Chaquico and performs as the Billy Slais JAZZ Ensemble at select Northern Nevada venues.
“Billy’s got a great ear, which means he can
really hear the music, and that’s why when we played R&B, like when I backed up him and Mick Gillette on trumpet;
it was always real tight.” said Steven “Doc” Kupka. Billy Slais said ".. one thing a
musician’s life will teach you is ... it’s what you’re doing today that counts. In this business, your
credits mean nothing if you can’t play well right now. You’ve got to be on top of your game!” And Billie
Slais is exactly that! A world class professional who is a pleasure to see and hear.
precisely why he's coming to Jazzland... Where The Great Musicians Play!
|THE AMBASSADOR OF JAZZ
Jazzland is proud to pay tribute to the "Ambassador of Jazz!" An exceptional jazz pioneer
and Jacksonville native. We invite you to participate in a splendid evening of jazz honoring this hometown
legend. We are especially proud because Jazzland, like Al Downing, is centered on advancing young jazz
musicians as we channel his great dedication, contributions and achievements to Jazz and remember his remarkable
This Great Jazz Pioneer Belongs To
You, Jacksonville! Alvin “Al” Joseph Downing was born in 1916 in Jacksonville,
Florida. At five his gift for music was evident. By the 9th grade he'd organized his
first band, The Ten Clouds of Joy. What a Legacy! Al Downing played “every instrument.”
Major Al Downing, a Tuskegee Airman, also penned
the Tuskegee Airmen Theme Song. As Special Services Officer at Tuskegee Army Air Field and leader of the 613th
Army Air Forces band, Al Downing also created and directed a military musical extravaganza, “Operation
Happiness” where General “Chappie” James served, as master of ceremonies. Al Downing
was posthumously presented the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor for being one of the Tuskegee
Airmen, the nation's first black combat pilots. His album, “Al Downing And Friends Do
Jazz” and “Angel Eyes” performed by his daughter, Evelyn, demand attention and excitement, to this

"Calvin Newborn" "Internationally acclaimed Jazz and Blues Guitarist"
Keep Watching For The Date Of His Next Performance At Jazzland ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
One of America’s greatest heroes of Blues and Jazz, it is high time you found
out more about Calvin Newborn. Musician, Playwright, Author, Educator. Calvin was Assistant
Director of Jazz Studies at LeMoyne-Owen College. He also taught underprivileged children at the Stax Music Academy and has
written numerous arrangements, compositions, stage plays and operettas. Calvin
Newborn is living history and Jazzland is humbled and proud to turn a page or two …leading you to knowing why Calvin
Newborn is important; why he is worthy of your complete attention.
The Smithsonian Institute has co-opted the photo... "Flying Calvin"
as the logo for their Rock’N’Soul exhibit. Jazzland makes it possible for you to see, hear and feel what the historians will write about Calvin Newborn. Too bad the "King" is gone, otherwise he’d happily tell you himself! That’s right! Elvis Presley worshipped at Calvin’s
feet. It was there he learned the showmanship for which he was so wildly famous. Elvis discovered how to move and dance under the skillful guidance and as a direct result of Calvin Newborn! Calvin is well appreciated for his remarkable achievements in Jazz and Blues. With astonishing clarity, calvin recalls stories about "the glory days" ....the Blues and Jazz sessions with some of the greatest musicians of our time. Mgazines like Living
Blues, Mojo, G.Q., and Cadence have all mined hundreds of tales about his work
with Count Basie, Howlin Wolf and others. Let's hope that from among the listeners…a
new talent will spark! Some young one will emerge to build on this exceptional talent and promise the waiting world its next Calvin Newborn.

Jazzland Is A Fundamental Resource For Women Jazz Instrumentalist - Use Us!
As women, we are caught between the dual problems of invisibility by the “myth of absence”
and by “exclusion from performance opportunities.”
Jazzland is a bridge
to the solution of those problems. One might easily conclude that an offering of a “Women In Jazz Series” every
now and again,
might easily solve the dual problems. Not so! To us, that would simply exacerbate the
unfair practice rather than provide an acceptable form of
embodiment to the women
instrumentalist whose talents are consistently excluded.
To dispel the myth of absence, we submit that women jazz intrumentalist are available and an exceptional
talent pool exists right here in Jacksonville,
from which to draw. Jazzland’s
role is to get you and that talented group believing ...that we are here for women too. Jazzland’s
goal is to book female
and male musicians. We have the local resources in
talent and gender to do exactly that!
Together, we must move beyond gender and call on all jazz musicians and their allies
to move toward a progressive, humanist place where the experiences
talents of all instrumentalists are equally respected and represented. To that end
and if you are or know of women instrumentalist, who play
jazz, please forward this message
on to them or simply let us know who and where they are! Jazzland is currently looking for
and booking women jazz
instrumentalist! We have a place for you and your legacy in
the glorious world of Jazz. We are a fundamental resource. Use us!

FOUR YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE JACKSONVILLE
THANK YOU JACKSONVILLE FOR HELPING
JAZZLAND MAKE HISTORY
In just TWO years, Jazzland's throbbing jazz nightlife has become a magnet for jazz thrill seekers
from way beyond the Jacksonville community. "Jazz is truly ascending" says Carole Freeman, the vibrant manager of
Jazzland. "Everybody’s excited and comes to see and hear the great jazz musicians we’re fortunate enough
to find. They’ve found a place that’s "exotic, safe, colorful, and sensuous; a place of laughing, singing,
and dancing; a place where the night lights up to Live Jam Sessions Every Tuesday Night and Sensational Jazz Every weekend."
University Boulevard rings with jazz music, jam sessions, dance, and happiness. Beautiful
cars line up for blocks under the glittering stars above Jazzland whose doors swallow up and spit out crowds of jazz lovers
on Friday and Saturday night. In all of Jacksonville, Jazzland is
the Only Live Jazz club. On Friday and Saturday nights, when the music begin to play, the whole city wants to
"cross the line" and come to University Blvd North. They call Jazzland "The Place" because you
can find everybody whose anybody there on a Saturday night, clapping and stomping away to the Best Jazz in Town. In fact,
people will tell you this is where the Jazz patrons of Jacksonville have finally found a remarkable haven for exceptional
So what is this groovy place all about?
Why do people come from miles around to have a taste of Jazzland’s nightlife? Put on your Saturday night frocks, and
let's go find out. And by the way...If you're new to Jazz, you might consider spending a few Saturday and Sunday nights listening
to "This Is Jazz" a radio show hosted by Jazz historian Bob Bednar. The show airs
on Public Radio, WJCT 89.9 Midnight on Friday, Saturday 8-10pm & Sundays 9 to 11. Bob is the perfect Intimate
Guide to Jazz.
Now you’re ready to hang out till midnight with great music, a fun crowd and plenty to do. You feel like you’re
in an old movie. The music is absolutely beautiful — soaring choruses played with blinding passion and the high-stepping
music of trumpets and saxophones. Critics love it. The audience is very diverse- a wonderful mixture of Jacksonville’s
many cultures. It's song and dance they're after, and by the time Jazzland lets out, everyone’s exhilarated, full of
love and wildly happy!
I say they call Jazzland "The Place" because you can find everybody whose anybody there on a Saturday night?
That's worth repeating! Inside, the patrons are going from table to table
greeting friends. A couple of men with very expensive suits stand under the glass chandelier chatting. Leaning on the counter
rail, some women in stylish, gleaming dresses are talking away.
Not everyone is rich or prominent. There is a terriffic mix of our beautiful city.
You'll find office workers, car salesmen, maids, teachers, social workers, longshoremen, college professors, students
and just about everything else! But once you're inside, it doesn't matter who you are or how you dress! They Love
You and make you feel oh so special! The stage is black with multi colored lights circling the floor borders. The décor
is a regal burgundy and gold with pictures of yesterday’s Jazz stars covering the walls. The music is jumping and it
seems like everyone’s swaying.
While Jazzland’s style and décor is reminiscent of the New York Jazz clubs of the 30’s & 40’s…
it’s policies are not! Like the days when W.C. Handy, the father of the blues, was turned away from the Cotton Club
while his music was blaring away inside; where the stage was lined with cotton bushes and rickety plantation cabins with
the bare legs of light-skinned black women kicking high to the sound of pulsating horns. Those days are dead and gone. Today,
Jazzland reflects the wonderful cultural blend of a beautifully progressive America. Where musicians and patrons come
together, where both are respected and happily joined by the exquisite beauty of ... and love for America's own
classical music, Jazz!

Soft & Sentimental Saturday Nights at Jazzland.....
"Carole Freeman sang her love songs Saturday night! She took her audience down a personal memory
lane to meet her first love, her lost love, her forbidden love. Carole
love she could never have. Even her transfigured love after having lost her husband and first born son! She talked about being
stalled for a brief time on an elevator
with the late New York Congressman, Adam Clayton Powell,
Jr., when she was just eighteen years old. And, how she fell like an anchor into the shine of his beautiful appearance.
The very sight of Congressman Powell, Carole recalled, erased all thoughts of her first love,
in an instant! The audience was in stiches as she remembered those five minutes in the
As the session progressed, Carole led each tune with a poignant narrative, guiding her listeners through every inch
of every kind of love emotion she's ever known, as she captured her memories in song. It was a wonderfully moving night at
Jazzland. If you missed it, don't despair. Carole's 2014 schedule will post soon. Keep Watching!
