The company’s work aims to honor tap dance’s uniquely beautiful history in a new\, dynamic\, and compelling context not by stripping the form of its tradition\, but by pushing it rhythmically\, aesthetically and conceptually. The company’s inaugural performance garnered a Bessie Award for “blasting open out notions of tap\,” and continues its passionate commitment to expanding the audience of tap dance. Street\, club and experimental dance forms – all of which are American dreams – awake to the sound of furious rhythms and find their boundaries missing. \n  \n\n\nSponsors\nDance Series Presenting Sponsors \nBetty Hum and Alan Yudell\nKaren and John Voris\nSignature Partner \n \n  URL:https://scottsdaleperformingarts.org/event/dorrance-dance-2/ LOCATION:Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts | Virginia G.

Both within their music and outside of the clubs and concert halls\, they wielded their exceptional talents to combat racial prejudice\, sexism\, and poverty. Whether powerfully and playfully claiming her autonomy and sexuality (Bessie Smith)\, forcing America to acknowledge the racism pervasive in the American South and beyond (Billie Holiday)\, or giving voice to the Civil Rights movement with stirring protest anthems (Nina Simone)\, these trailblazing singers spoke to and for the disenfranchised as women\, African-Americans\, and artists. All three women defied social norms\, embracing self-empowerment through their art. \nProduced by Grammy-winning Eli Wolf (Norah Jones\, Cassandra Wilson)\, and with arrangements by pianist and musical director Carmen Staff (Dee Dee Bridgewater)\, BESSIE\, BILLIE\, & NINA: PIONEERING WOMEN IN JAZZ features three dynamic vocalists\, each a rising star in her own right: Charenée Wade and Camille Thurman (both regular performers with Jazz at Lincoln Center) and Tahira Clayton (co-leader\, WIJO\, Women in Jazz Organization). Presented in affiliation with WIJO and backed by an all-female band\, Wade\, Thurman\, and Clayton celebrate the enduring legacies of these iconic women and artists with performances of their classic songs\, including Bessie Smith’s “Downhearted Blues\,” Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit\,” and Nina Simone’s “Mississippi Goddam.” \nThe musical and social legacies of Bessie Smith\, Billie Holiday\, and Nina Simone remain as relevant as ever. Their contributions resonate with today’s artists across many genres\, as well as with ongoing movements toward progress and equality for women\, African-Americans\, and the LGBTQ community. BESSIE\, BILLIE\, & NINA will entertain\, inspire\, and empower audiences during this pivotal time in our own history. \n  URL:https://scottsdaleperformingarts.org/event/pioneering-women-in-jazz/ LOCATION:Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts | Virginia G.

Cohn combines the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. His music is grounded in the richness of American rhythm and blues\, soul\, and gospel\, and his lyrics flow from a deft storyteller’s pen.   \nCohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the ’90s\, at which point TIME magazine called him “one of the honest\, emotional voices we need in this decade” and Bonnie Raitt declared\, “Marc is one of the most soulful\, talented artists I know. I love his songs\, he’s an incredible singer\, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for.”   \nCohn revisited another corner of American music’s rich heritage with gospel legends Blind Boys of Alabama on the Grammy®-nominated song “Let My Mother Live\,” and he worked with David Crosby on the album Lighthouse. In 2019\, Cohn released a collaborative record with The Blind Boys of Alabama\, titled Work to Do. Cohn continues to do what he does best: infuse American music with both a fresh perspective and a reverence for its deep roots.  \nChelsea Williams  \nWith a vocal-coach mother and that Joni Mitchell-inspired name\, it’s hardly surprising that Chelsea Williams embraced music early on. By 12\, she was writing songs and hitting open-mic nights. At 14\, she joined a band of blues players closer in age to the grandfather she never knew. At 21\, she started busking at Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade. Finally\, with comparisons to Sheryl Crow and a couple of record deals\, Williams was eventually able to make a living playing her dreamy pop.  \nThe release of Beautiful and Strange\, Williams’s second album for L.A. independent label Blue Élan Records\, brings even more attention for Williams’ musical charms. Her airy\, elegantly nuanced vocals carry reminders of Sixpence None the Richer’s Leigh Anne Nash and the Sundays’ Harriet Wheeler. There are also tangential comparisons to jazz chanteuse Kat Edmonson and the recent work of genre-fluid Hymn for Her singer Lucy Tight. If those references seem esoteric\, that’s a good thing\, because having to stretch for comparisons reinforces the unique allure of Williams’ delivery.  \n“If I had to define my style\, it would be Americana with a bit of modern pop\, topped off by a healthy dose of reckless abandon\,” Williams says. “I never want to confine myself creatively\, and I apply these categories very loosely.”  URL:https://scottsdaleperformingarts.org/event/marc-cohn/ LOCATION:Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts | Virginia G.

She has been playing professionally for more than 20 years\, leading her bands Jazz Con Alma and Nova Mundo. Lederman’s music is melodic\, fun\, fluid\, passionate\, innovative\, heartfelt\, eclectic\, honest\, artistic\, humorous\, and spontaneous.  \nHolly Pyle cut her teeth as an impressive straight-ahead jazz singer. Over time\, Pyle integrated a handful of other genres and is now best known as the vocal-looping frontwoman of progressive soul outfit House of Stairs. Voted best vocalist of 2019 by Phoenix New Times\, and now a resident of California\, Pyle returns for this special performance celebrating female composers.  URL:https://scottsdaleperformingarts.org/event/she-hers-ours/ LOCATION:Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts | Stage 2\, 7380 E 2nd St\, Scottsdale\, 85251\, United States CATEGORIES:Jazz ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://scottsdaleperformingarts.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/She-Hers-Ours_300x300_01.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Phoenix:20220415T130000 DTEND;TZID=America/Phoenix:20220415T143000 DTSTAMP:20220322T181609 CREATED:20220308T203437Z LAST-MODIFIED:20220308T203437Z UID:12967-1650027600-1650033000@scottsdaleperformingarts.org SUMMARY:Memory Lounge | Journal-making with Mary Strawn DESCRIPTION:About the Event\nJoin us in creating your own personal journal.

Deemed “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by The New York Times\, she has released three critically-acclaimed and boundary-blurring solo albums including In the Magic Hour\, which Rolling Stone hailed for its “Impressionistic\, atmospheric songs [that] relay their narratives against gorgeous pastoral backdrops.”   \nA savvy and generous collaborator\, O’Donovan is one third of the group I’m With Her with bandmates Sara Watkins and Sarah Jarosz. The trio’s debut album\, See You Around\, was hailed as “willfully open-hearted” by NPR Music and earned the group a Grammy® in 2020 for Best American Roots Song. O’Donovan spent the preceding decade as cofounder and frontwoman of the string band Crooked Still and is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions with Yo-Yo Ma\, Stuart Duncan\, Edgar Meyer\, and Chris Thile.   \nO’Donovan spent the winter and spring of 2021 in the studio with acclaimed producer Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt\, Rhiannon Giddens) recording her third full-length solo album titled Age of Apathy\, just released in January 2022. This show will feature O’Donovan and her band playing selections from this new album. \nOf the new album\, Pitchfork writes: “On Age of Apathy\, she taps into the propulsion of prime Joni Mitchell: a restless mind bouncing against the blur of one’s surroundings. She has that same actor’s sense—when to go big\, when to bring it backwards.” \nPopMatters also reviewed Age of Apathy\, writing: “The final results are lushly layered and sophisticated. O’Donovan is often considered a singer-songwriter and folkie\, but this release finds her music hard to pigeonhole as its connections to contemporary jazz and even classical music are clearly evident.”  \nTaylor Ashton  \nRaised in Vancouver\, Canada\, Taylor Ashton now lives in Brooklyn\, and recently released his first solo album\, The Romantic—an ode to the devastating\, ecstatic\, gritty\, sexy decade of his 20s\, woven together through his five-string banjo with the help of 18 different musicians from the Brooklyn music scene and all across the United States and Canada.  \nAshton’s career began in Vancouver as frontman and songwriter for Fish & Bird. The Vancouver Folk Fest called the group “Canada’s most unique folk-rock ensemble\,” with reviewers taking note of Ashton’s “off-kilter lyrical excursions” (The Georgia Straight) and his “rich\, compelling voice” (Exclaim!). From 2006 to 2014\, Fish & Bird recorded four albums and exhaustively made the rounds of the festival and touring circuit of Canada\, the United States\, and the United Kingdom.  \nThe 12 new songs on Ashton’s solo debut chronicle leaving a relationship\, a band\, and Canada. He moved from Toronto to New York City\, ready to take a break from the heavy touring schedule of Fish & Bird and to find himself in a new setting. He survived by singing and playing clawhammer banjo in the subway\, turning heads with covers that leaned more Motown than hoedown. Over the years he also made a living as an illustrator\, an audio book narrator\, a songwriting teacher\, and an occasional sideman for British country-soul singer Yola. He was even hired by The New York Times to write a song about the debt-ridden subway system. Fueled by $1 pizza slices and the intoxicating creative energy of his new hometown\, he wrote more than 400 songs. “A lot of them were pretty dumb\,” he said. “But some that I thought were dumb turned out to be good.”  \nWhile making The Romantic\, Ashton also teamed up with fellow songwriter Courtney Hartman to record a spare duo album\, 2018’s Been On Your Side\, which was nominated for an Independent Music Award and earned praise in Rolling Stone\, saying it “packs a punch in today’s mainstream.”  URL:https://scottsdaleperformingarts.org/event/aoife-odonovan/ LOCATION:Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts | Virginia G.

Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity and depth\, his performances are a perpetual source of awe. “He has everything and more … tenderness and also the demonic element\,” marveled pianist Martha Argerich. “I never heard anything like that.” With Transcendental\, the Liszt collection that marked his third title as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist\, Trifonov won the 2018 Grammy® for Best Instrumental Solo Album. As The Times of London notes\, he is “without question the most astounding pianist of our age.”  \nIn October 2021\, Trifonov released Bach: The Art of Life on Deutsche Grammophon\, including The Art of Fugue with the pianist’s own completion of the final contrapunctus\, selections from the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach\, music by four of Johann Sebastian’s sons\, two pieces known to have been Bach family favorites\, and more. He is touring a recital program during the 2021–22 season centered on The Art of Fugue in Europe\, and a second program in the United States of Prokofiev\, Szymanowski\, Debussy\, and Brahms. Brahms’s First Piano Concerto serves as the vehicle for appearances with the Dallas Symphony led by Fabio Luisi and Philharmonia Zurich under the direction of Gianandrea Noseda\, and with Rome’s Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia led by Antonio Pappano he performs Mozart’s Ninth Jeunehomme Piano Concerto on a European tour. He also performs all five of Beethoven’s piano concertos in various combinations with eight different orchestras: the New York Philharmonic\, Cincinnati Symphony\, New Jersey Symphony\, Munich Philharmonic\, Mariinsky Orchestra\, Orchestre des Champs-Élysées\, Budapest Festival Orchestra\, and Toronto Symphony. Balancing out these staples of the repertoire\, Trifonov gives the world premiere performances of Mason Bates’s new Piano Concerto\, composed for him during the pandemic\, with the co-commissioning Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin\, before reprising the piece in the spring with the New Jersey Symphony\, Israel Philharmonic\, and the other co-commissioner\, the San Francisco Symphony.   \nHighlights of recent seasons include a multi-faceted\, season-long tenure as 2019–20 Artist-in-Residence of the New York Philharmonic under Jaap van Zweden\, featuring the New York premiere of Trifonov’s own Piano Quintet\, and a seven-concert\, season-long Carnegie Hall “Perspectives” series\, crowned by a performance of the pianist’s own Piano Concerto with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra. Trifonov played Tchaikovsky’s First under Riccardo Muti in the historic gala finale of the Chicago Symphony’s 125th-anniversary celebrations; launched the New York Philharmonic’s 2018–19 season; headlined complete Rachmaninoff concerto cycles at the New York Philharmonic’s Rachmaninoff Festival and with London’s Philharmonia Orchestra and the Munich Philharmonic; undertook season-long residencies with the Berlin Philharmonic and at Vienna’s Musikverein\, where he appeared with the Vienna Philharmonic and gave the Austrian premiere of his own Piano Concerto; and headlined the Berlin Philharmonic’s famous New Year’s Eve concert under Sir Simon Rattle. Since making solo recital debuts at Carnegie Hall\, London’s Wigmore Hall\, Vienna’s Musikverein\, Japan’s Suntory Hall\, and Paris’s Salle Pleyel in 2012–13\, Trifonov has given solo recitals at venues including the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.; Boston’s Celebrity Series; London’s Barbican\, Royal Festival and Queen Elizabeth Halls; Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw (Master Piano Series); Berlin’s Philharmonie; Munich’s Herkulessaal; Bavaria’s Schloss Elmau; Zurich’s Tonhalle; the Lucerne Piano Festival; the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels; the Théâtre des Champs Élysées and Auditorium du Louvre in Paris; Barcelona’s Palau de la Música; Tokyo’s Opera City; the Seoul Arts Center; and Melbourne’s Recital Centre.  \nFall 2020 brought the release of Silver Age\, an album of Russian solo and orchestral piano music by Scriabin\, Prokofiev\, and Stravinsky\, recorded with Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra. This followed 2019’s Destination Rachmaninov: Arrival\, for which Trifonov received a 2021 Grammy® nomination. Presenting the composer’s First and Third Concertos\, Arrival represents the third volume of the Deutsche Grammophon series he recorded with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Nézet-Séguin\, following Destination Rachmaninov: Departure\, named BBC Music’s 2019 Concerto Recording of the Year\, and Rachmaninov: Variations\, a 2015 Grammy® nominee. Deutsche Grammophon has also issued Chopin Evocations\, which pairs the composer’s works with those by the 20th-century composers he influenced\, and Trifonov: The Carnegie Recital\, the pianist’s first recording as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist\, which captured Trifonov’s sold-out 2013 Carnegie Hall recital debut live and scored him his first Grammy® nomination.  \nIt was during the 2010–11 season that Trifonov won medals at three of the music world’s most prestigious competitions\, taking Third Prize in Warsaw’s Chopin Competition\, First Prize in Tel Aviv’s Rubinstein Competition\, and both First Prize and Grand Prix—an additional honor bestowed on the best overall competitor in any category—in Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Competition. In 2013 he was awarded the prestigious Franco Abbiati Prize for Best Instrumental Soloist by Italy’s foremost music critics\, and in 2016 he was named Gramophone’s Artist of the Year.  \nBorn in Nizhny Novgorod in 1991\, Trifonov began his musical training at the age of 5 and went on to attend Moscow’s Gnessin School of Music as a student of Tatiana Zelikman\, before pursuing his piano studies with Sergei Babayan at the Cleveland Institute of Music. He has also studied composition and continues to write for piano\, chamber ensemble\, and orchestra. When he premiered his own Piano Concerto\, the Cleveland Plain Dealer marveled: “Even having seen it\, one cannot quite believe it. Such is the artistry of pianist-composer Daniil Trifonov.”  \n  \nSponsors \nWorld Class Partner \n \nVirginia G.

A 12-time Grammy® nominee\, he’s a four-time winner in the Best Contemporary Blues Album category\, and his 2019 release\, Oklahoma\, was named Best Americana Album.  \nArtists who have recorded his songs include B.B. King\, Buddy Guy\, The Chicks\, Joe Cocker\, Robert Palmer\, Tom Jones\, Melissa Manchester\, Solomon Burke\, and the Zac Brown Band to name a few. The list of artist collaborations comprises a who’s who in the music industry and includes Bonnie Raitt\, Taj Mahal\, Vince Gill\, Amy Grant\, Jackson Browne\, Natalie Cole\, Lyle Lovett\, India Arie\, James Cotton\, Bobby Rush\, Timothy B. Schmit\, Marcus Miller\, and many more. His guitar playing has garnered him two invites to Eric Clapton’s acclaimed Crossroads Festival and has inspired Gibson Brands to issue the Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster and Bluesmaster Royale acoustic guitars and Martin Guitars to issue the HD-28KM Keb’ Mo’ Limited Edition Signature model.  \nThe talented artist has also been awarded 14 Blues Foundation Awards and 6 BMI Awards for his work in television and film. In addition to acting\, he has written music for Martha Stewart Living\, Mike & Molly\, and Memphis Beat. He played his iconic version of “America the Beautiful” in the series finale of Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing\, as well as at the actual White House for President Barack Obama. A long-time supporter of the Playing For Change Foundation\, which creates positive change through music education\, he is also a mentor at The Johnson School of Excellence in Chicago\, Illinois\, as part of the Kennedy Center’s Turnaround Arts program.  \nAnthony D’Amato  \nAnthony D’Amato first emerged to international acclaim with the 2014 release of The Shipwreck From The Shore\, his New West Records debut. Inspired in part by time spent studying with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon\, the album garnered rave reviews on both sides of the pond\, with NPR inviting D’Amato for a Tiny Desk Concert and lauding that “he writes in the tradition of Bruce Springsteen or Josh Ritter” and Uncut proclaiming that his songwriting “echoes with early Bob Dylan.” D’Amato followed it up in 2016 with the Mike Mogis-produced Cold Snap\, which featured contributions from an all-star cast of Omaha musicians\, including Conor Oberst and members of Bright Eyes\, Cursive\, and The Faint. The record landed D’Amato his first national TV appearance along with an “Artist You Need To Know” nod from Rolling Stone\, which hailed his writing as “folk music raised on New Jersey grit.” \nIn response to mounting humanitarian crises overseas and at our own southern border\, D’Amato returned the following year with a collaborative charity EP titled Won’t You Be My Neighbor\, which has raised more than $10\,000 for refugee aid to date. Songs from D’Amato’s solo albums\, meanwhile\, have racked up more than 10 million streams on Spotify alone and landed him headline and festival performances in the United States\, Europe\, and Australia\, as well as support dates with Ben Folds\, Valerie June\, Shovels & Rope\, The Old 97’s\, American Aquarium\, The Felice Brothers\, Tyler Childers\, Langhorne Slim\, and more. \nD’Amato’s latest collection is Five Songs From New Orleans\, a stripped-down\, acoustic EP recorded in the living room of a historic 1860s Garden District home. Praised as “stunning” by Billboard\, the collection is a raw\, unfiltered affair that draws on an eclectic array of New Orleans sounds\, from Cajun fiddle and traditional jazz to classic country and fingerpicked folk.  URL:https://scottsdaleperformingarts.org/event/keb-mo-2/ LOCATION:Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts | Virginia G.
