Myra Melford’s cutting-edge Snowy Egret quintet has drawn critical and audience adoration since it first soared onto the scene in 2012. The group is a perfect musical vehicle for Melford’s diverse musical concepts, blending her strong and distinctive writing with the bold individualism of the band members. Just a year after their public debut, Snowy Egret’s premiere performance of Melford’s multisensory Language of Dreams earned her a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship. After releasing their debut record in 2015, the band toured extensively—including a coveted weeklong engagement at the Village Vanguard—and was named the Best Mid-Size Ensemble of 2016 by the Jazz Journalists Association. Originally performed on November 7, 2018 this set features Snowy Egret’s material from their album The Other Side of Air.
Deemed stunningly good by the New York Times, Jonathan Thomas has been captivating jazz enthusiast with his soulful and ardent approach to the art-form. A graduate of The Juilliard School, Thomas has opened for Benny Golson, and has performed with Charles Toliver, Bruce Williams, Richie Goods, Jazzmeia Horn, and the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, among many others. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, he benefited from the city’s wide range of jazz veterans and swing-rooted tradition. Sonically, his sound harkens to the creative influences he’s adopted. Influences such as Kenny Kirkland, Wynton Kelly, and Mulgrew Miller are apparent muses and thus lend their sound to his style. I hope you all enjoy this set featuring his trio live from his home in Cleveland, OH.
