The ninth season of Maryland Summer Jazz
offers educational opportunities for musicians and jazz lovers. International
jazz artists and professors from many universities will teach and perform in
workshops, jams and public concerts. Headlining this years festival are
artist educators from Brazil, the U.S.A. and Canada: guitarist Steve Rochinski,
trumpeter John Dearth and bassist Leonardo Lucini. The lineup also
includes bassist Amy Shook, pianist Wade Beach, trombonist Jim McFalls and
drummer Harold F. Summey, Jr. Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk is artistic director.
The goal of jazz camp is to encourage amateur and semi-pro students to get
out of the basement and onto the bandstand. The day camp provides a
continuing education opportunity for music teachers and gives H.S. and college
students a place to sharpen their skills in the summer. Older players have the
chance to bring their skill and technique to the level of working musicians.
The campus is located at Saint Mark Presbyterian Church (10701 Old Georgetown
Rd., Rockville, MD 20852). Jazz camp registration continues through June 30.
Military and family discounts are available. Call Jeff Antoniuk at 410-295-5591

Like most accomplished jazz
drummers, Tony Martucci has played with an array of gifted musicians. So
when he gets a chance to lead his own recording session, you can bet he'll be
in excellent company. Martuccis new album, Life in
Hand, his fourth as a bandleader, underscores his knack for being
in the right place at the right time with the right collaborators.

A common thread runs through the music
played by Chuck Redd and his colleagues on this marvelous recording that, in
the words of the accomplished vibraphonist/drummer himself, is sewn into
jazz from the beginning of the art form. To swing, to play melodically,
highlight the beauty of a great song, to infuse the music with a blues feeling
and consistently strive for honesty and excellence are the elements that Redd
feels connects the music that he makes today with all the many great sounds of
jazz that have come before it.
Ron Kearns and Friends Introspective is a
compilation of Ron's originals recorded previously and features Kenny Reed,

piano; Eric Byrd, piano; Mike Jones, piano; James King, bass; Bhagwan Khalsa,
bass; Kent Miller, bass; Allison Miller, drums; Mike Smith, drums and Tim
Collins, vibes. The songs were co-produced by Ronnie Wells and the CD is
dedicated to her memory.
Steve Herberman and his trio stretch out over a set of
favorite modern jazz classics and originals ranging in styles, meters and
moods. The unique arrangements and extended improvisation coupled with subtle
group interplay holds the listeners attention. At the root of Steve's playing
is a love of contrapuntal textures, a harmonic approach to improvising and
rhythmic diversity. "Ideals" consists of four new original compositions
and seven standards with a few surprises.
