12/28/2014: 3 p.m.-6 p.m. 2nd annual Mike Kaplan Nonet Salutes Cedar Walton with special guest Vinnie Cutro – trumpet

3 p.m. - 6 p.m.
$10 pp music charge   $8 pp minimum

We hope to see you at Trumpets on Sunday afternoon December 28th at 4pm…. To celebrate the Holidays and the late great Cedar Walton.

The Cedar Walton Trio at The Village Vanguard was a Holiday Tradition.  For over 25 years, Mr Walton’s Trio played at the storied New York club for the last 2 weeks every year… for Christmas & New Year’s.

The legendary pianist/composer (who also played with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, JJ Johnson, the Jazztet and many other greats) passed on earlier this year at the age of 89.

The Mike Kaplan Nonet will celebrate Mr Walton’s legacy by performing new large group arrangements (for six horns & rhythm section) of some of his unique and memorable compositions.  Many will be familiar to jazz connoisseurs…. and some are not as well known, but certainly deserving of wider recognition.  In addition to Kaplan’s arrangements, there will be premieres of arrangements of Cedar Walton compositions by Grammy award nominated arranger/trombonist/vocalist Pete McGuinness, bassist Mike Karn of the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra veteran saxophonist Ed Xiques and ex-George Russell Orchestra saxophonist/composer/arranger Bob Hanlon.

Mike Kaplan – tenor sax/arranger

Vinnie Cutro-special guest, trumpet

Rob Henke & Bill Mobley – trumpet/flugelhorn

Pete McGuinness – trombone

Anton Denner – alto sax, clarinet and flute

Ed Xiques – baritone sax, bass clarinet
