Summer Jazz 2004


STEVE WILSON QUARTET
June 18-19
Up Over Jazz Café, 351 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, 718.398.5413

The saxophonist works one of the greatest shell games in town. What sounds airy and buoyant is actually nuanced and heavy—the kind of deep musicianship that can afford to put an "aw shucks" demeanor up front. MACNIE

    THOMASZ STANKO QUARTET
    June 23
    JVC Jazz Festival, Merkin Concert Hall, 129 West 67th Street, 212.501.3330

    The prolific Polish trumpeter brings his quartet here on the heels of his moody yet lyrical ECM release Suspended Night. His band's an organic entity often deeply reminiscent of mid-'60s Miles Davis units, whose leader Stanko's own glossary of moans, shrieks, and singing tones echoes with personal variations. GEHR


    TIM RIES'S STONES PROJECT
    June 22-24
    Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, 212.576.2232

    Surely there's some jazz ground to be gained with "Moonlight Mile" or "Time Waits for No One," and the saxophonist, who's been part of Mick 'n' Keith's touring camp for a while now, leaps into those waters all the way. It took Sonny Rollins to vivify that "Waiting On a Friend" coda, but I bet Ries gets somewhere with his thesis—especially with a Simon, Genus, Penn rhythm section. MACNIE
