Jazz Discovery Series: Warren Wolf
Friday, December 11th @ 8 PM
Writing for the New York Daily News on October 15, 2011, Greg Thomas said of his CD "Warren Wolf": "To say that Warren Wolf's Mack Avenue debut is auspicious would be an understatement. No doubt, this is one of the best of the year in jazz." His other notable recordings as a leader are “Incredible Jazz Vibes” (2005) (featuring Mulgrew Miller on piano, Vicente Archer on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums), and "Black Wolf" (2009) (featuring Mulgrew Miller on piano, Rodney Whitaker on bass, and Jeff "Tain" Watts on drums).

Jazz Discovery Series: C.C. Sunchild

With the purity and sensibility of one who spends much time basking in the glowing rays of the Sun, Colette Coward, also known as CC Sunchild, embodies everything her name suggests. Musically, she captures a whimsical innocence and simplicity, underscored by a compellingly brilliant complexity. Her diverse training and experience in jazz, classical, gospel, pop, and world music are nestled seamlessly within the intricate weavings of her creative expression. This accomplished musician has traveled all over the world and has performed with several well-known artists such as Patti LaBelle, Bruce Hornsby, Bobby McFerrin, India.Arie, Rueben Studdard, Dionne Farris, Raphael Saadiq, Caron Wheeler, and a host of others. Most recently, Colette performed nightly at Suzhou, China’s Crowne Plaza, where she was the featured artist-in-residence. Prior to that, she traveled to Bali, Indonesia to study Gamelan under the tutelage of Master Nyoman Warsa. Now residing in Atlanta, GA, CC Sunchild is currently working on her debut album, which is scheduled to be release in 2016.
