Dizzy's Club

Oliver Lake Big Band

Big Band Mondays

Composer, arranger, poet, bandleader, and saxophonist Oliver Lake is a true renaissance man, most widely recognized as a composer and as an explosive, piercing saxophonist. For the first time since 2013 at Dizzy’s Club, he will present his highly acclaimed Oliver Lake Big Band. The ensemble packs in an unusually wide range of music, shifting effortlessly from a traditional, heavily arranged big band sound, to the avant-garde, to Outkast’s “The Whole World,” which DownBeat called “the best-ever jazz cover of a hip-hop track” upon its release. While definitely on the wild, modern side of big band jazz, Lake mostly keeps his music accessible enough for fans of the traditional big band sound as well as those with an affinity for jazz’s more experimental possibilities. It’s a captivating blend, one that reinforces the notion that “all jazz is modern.”


Dizzy's Club

Pianist Rick Germanson returns to Dizzy’s Club for this 7:30pm set.

Tonight will be the NYC album release celebration for Turquoise Twice, out on WJ3 Records.

Dizzy's Club

Buster Williams & Something More

The master bassist Buster Williams, once a sideman renowned for his work with Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Jimmy Heath, Betty Carter, and others, now leads his own groups under the name “Something More.” Of this title, Williams says: “Music should be an experience. It shouldn’t be something that’s understood by mathematics or by categories. The objective is to always give the audience something more.” While the members of Something More rotate from project to project, their individual and collective standards of performance—as well as their long, diverse lists of musical accomplishments and collaborations—never falter.


Rose Theater 2019-2020 season
