 Olivia Foschi with

John Ehlis Quartet
John Ehlis-guitar
Craig Yaremko-woodwinds
Marc Harris-  bass
Luis Manuel – percussion

“Foschi is today’s vocalist, blazing the trail for a new style of jazz vocals, not adhering to traditional sounds or rhythms, but appealing to a new generation of listeners, while still honoring jazz as a tradition. She is truly original and far from the norm as a composer and as a vocalist.” (H. Allen Williams, JazzTimes)

Since 2012, Foschi and Ehlis have performed together with a variety of creative musicians and artists including esteemed artists, bassist Chris White, and saxophonist Joseph Jarman. This special appearance showcase their individual and collective artistry with songs and compositions of their own own song, as well as arrangements of standards from the jazz repertoire.

Olivia Foschi was born in San Francisco and grew up in Italy. Although she always loved to sing, she discovered her passion for jazz while studying guitar and Theory of Music with Roy Zimmerman in high school. Her stylistic approach to singing shifted in 2001 when she was given the opportunity to study classical Nepali voice with established singer and composer Aavaas in Katmandu. This experience brought immense musical inspiration and left her eager to explore her voice paying particular attention to color and rhythm. After earning her B.A. in English Literature Cum Laude (John Cabot University, Rome, Italy, 2004), Olivia moved on to study jazz voice with Cecilia Izzi and nonverbal communication with Italian singer/songwriter Grazia DiMichele at the University of Music in Rome. She subsequently pursued undergraduate studies in jazz performance at the Music Academy in Bologna, 2006-2009.

Olivia was awarded first place at the vocal competition at the “Jazz Women in Blues Festival” (Naima Club, Forlì, Italy, 2009) obtaining a full scholarship to the Venice Voice Academy in L.A. for the 2010 summer-session. She moved to New York in the Autumn of 2010, studying mixed meter and polyrhythm with Marc Mommaas and voice with Fay Victor and Jeremiah Abiah.

Released this year, “Fleeting Windows” features Gil Goldstein, Alex Sipiagin, Yotam Silberstein, Billy Test, Daniel Dickinson, Joseph Doubleday, Marco Panascia, and Ulysses Owens, Jr. Her debut album entitled “Perennial Dreamer” was released in 2013 and produced by Ulysses Owens Jr. and features harmonica wizard Gregoire Maret.

Olivia has performed throughout the US and Europe, and has been featured on NPR in 2016-2018 on WPPB’s live broadcast: The Jam Session Radio Hour hosted by John Landes and Claes Brondal. Olivia teaches at the New York Jazz Workshop and continues to study classical Indian Konnakkol with Ganesh Kumar. She has recorded and shared the stage with Gil Goldstein, Chris White, Warren Smith, Joseph Jarman, Thurman Barker, Ulysses Owens Jr., Gregoire Maret, Alex Sipiagin, Mauricio Zottarelli, Helio Alves, Greg Skaff, Lou Caputo, Erik Lawrence, Stacy Dillard, and Yotam Silberstein among many others.

Montclair based guitarist John Ehlis is drawn to traditional and folk music from around the world, and has performed with artists ranging from saxophonists Oliver Lake and John Tchicai, to vocalists Marie Afonso, Loire Cotler, frame drum master Glen Velez, Argentine guitarists Juan Falu, Quique Sinesi, singer/songwriter Scott E. Moore, Basque musicians Kepa Junkera, Tapia and Leturria, Danish drummer Kresten Osgood, Finnish saxophonist Mikko Innanen and many others.

A dynamic performer on all saxophones, flutes and clarinets Craig Yaremko is a broad-minded-and-talented musician. He has performed alongside jazz artists Geri Allen, Helio Alves, Jerry Bergonzi, Don Braden, Paulo Braga, Randy Brecker, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Candido, Jimmy Cobb, Paquito D’Rivera, and Ray Vega, as well as with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, New York City Symphony, and has backed-up such artists as Clay Aiken, Frankie Avalon, Aretha Franklin, Johnny Mathis and Frankie Valli.

New York area bassist Marc Harris has been playing bass professionally since the early 1970’s. Through the 70’s & 80’s he toured North America, Europe and Japan playing with R&B, Caribbean and African music groups. Marc is also a master shipwright, having spent most of the 1990’s in the shipyards of Seattle. He spent the following decade in Hawaii where he played over 250 nights a year with various Hawaiian bands.

An avid percussionist, Luis Manuel has performed with the acclaimed Portuguese traditional band Companhia das Músicas, with the world music band Mary Sarah and the Elements of Return, and the Middle Eastern troupe Anka Kusu. He accompanies belly dancing classes and performances, and has worked with Manhattan Tribal, Touche, Audie, Dena, Gia and Trinity.

The Mike Kaplan Nonet’s music is an irresistible mix of big band bravado and small ensemble adventurousness. At their burly, boisterous best, the Mike Kaplan Nonet has the excitement and drive of the bands that Charles Mingus recorded with.–George Kanzler/Newark Star-Ledger

 Saxophonist/composer Mike Kaplan has been arranging and performing music for jazz nonet since the ’80s.

The Mike Kaplan Nonet combines the strength, cohesion and varied tonal colors of a big band with the spontaneity and flexibility of a small group.  The Nonet features 6 horns out front, an intuitive rhythm and plays original arrangements in a variety of styles and genres all filtered through the 21st century Jazz sensibilities of the leader and band members.  In addition to featuring its own original compositions, the band also re-examines and re-works deserving compositions of others including Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Cedar Walton, Herbie Nichols, Wayne Shorter, George Adams and many more.  The Nonet’s book comprises over 150 arrangements and a set from the Nonet can run the gamut from Postbop burning to Latin Jazz to Ellingtonian swing to gutbucket Funk.  The Nonet’s cd, “How’s That?” has received airplay on over 150 radio stations worldwide.

“….. one of New Jersey’s unsung treasures.  Their music is an irresistible mix of big band bravado and small ensemble adventurousness.  At their burly, boisterous best, The Nonet has the drive and excitement of the mid-size bands that Charles Mingus recorded with”.

Dawn Jones-singer

Wallace Roney earned the admiration and respect of his colleagues and his elders since age 16. He has been an integral part of the band with Tony Williams, Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Walter Davis Jr., Herbie Hancock, Jay McShann, David Murray, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Curtis Fuller, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Dizzy Gillespie to name a few. He was one of the few musicians in his generation who learned and perfected his craft directly from alliances with Jazz Masters. But his most important and meaningful relationship was with Miles Davis.

Wallace was mentored by Miles Davis after Miles heard him in 1983 at his birthday gala performance in Carnegie Hall. Their association peaked when Miles chose Wallace to share the stage at his historic performance in Montreux in 1991. After Davis died, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Tony Williams and Roney banded together and toured the world in tribute.

My goal is to make the best music I can. I enjoy, listen and can play ALL types of music I filter my expression through the jazz experience.
