Sponsored by: Ken & Nancy Kranzberg

Hailing from America, Canada, Israel, Chile and Japan: ARTEMIS is an international all-star group featuring six of the top performers on the jazz scene today: pianist and musical director RENEE ROSNES, trumpeter INGRID JENSEN, clarinetist ANAT COHEN, tenor saxophonist MELISSA ALDANA, bassist NORIKO UEDA and drummer ALLISON MILLER. Forget about gender! This is a significant and serious band that plays with passion, power and sensitivity. They will bring their collective artistry to the world, throughout 2020, with unforgettable performances of high-wire interplay and pure joy.


"One of Sunday’s clear highlights was a set by the super-group Artemis, a collective whose members — pianist Renee Rosnes, saxophonist Melissa Aldana, clarinetist Anat Cohen, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, bassist Noriko Ueda and drummer Allison Miller — can all regularly be heard leading their own bands. Their set played like an expertly crafted mixtape, moving from a knotty version of Thelonious Monk’s “Brilliant Corners” to a surprisingly dramatic arrangement of the Beatles’ ‘Fool on the Hill.’"

"Two all-female ensembles scored high marks with festival-goers on Sunday. At the Fort Stage it was Artemis, the all-star sextet named for the Greek goddess of wilderness and the hunt. With a powerhouse frontline of trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana and clarinetist Cohen, and a solid rhythm section of pianist Renee Rosnes, bassist Noriko Ueda and drummer Allison Miller, they turned in a swinging rendition of Monk’s “Brilliant Corners” and delivered a twist on the Beatles’ ‘Fool On The Hill.'"

THIS EVENT IS A PART OF OUR WHITAKER JAZZ SPEAKES, PERFORMANCE AND AUTHOR SERIES

Jazz saxophonist, Benny Golson, is one of the last remaining legends of the music. Of the 57 jazz musicians pictured in the iconic “A Great Day in Harlem” photograph, he is one of only two still living and at age 90, his playing is as fresh as ever. In this special event, Dr. Gerald Early interviews saxophone legend Benny Golson about his nearly 8-decade career, followed by a performance from the man that brought you jazz standards like Killer Joe, Whisper Not, and I Remember Clifford.
