John Ehlis Trio with special guests Loire Cotler(voice) & Glen Velez (frame drums)
John Ehlis guitar
Lori Cotler-rhythm vocalist
Glen Velez-frame drums
Scott Hogan- 5 string electric fretless bass
Guitarist John Ehlis with special guests Loire Cotler (rhythm vocalist) and Glen Velez (frame drums), featuring Craig Yaremko (woodwinds) and Scott Hogan (5-string fretless bass).
Guitarist and multi-instrumentalist John Ehlis combines creative forces with the finest musicians to convey the spirit and energy of music made and played in the moment.
This performance showcases the mesmerizing artistry of Loire and Glen Velez, who are forging new ground within the very ancient pairing of voice and drums.
Guitarist, mandolinist and multi-instrumentalist John Ehlis is a prolific composer and atypical bandleader. His musical ventures and collaborations transcend the boundaries of any single style of music, while his collective offerings showcase the creative artistry and talents of each person on the stage. His ideas converge through the inspiration drawn from a diverse field of innovative artists and ideas, which also encompasses traditional and folk music from around the world.
Described by the New Yorker as “using her voice in mystically percussive ways,” Loire, (aka Lori Cotler), is quickly gaining an international reputation as one of the most captivating and original vocalists of our time. She combines World Music, Jazz and Pop with scat improvisations and her original reworking of the sophisticated art of Konnakol, the vocal drum language of South Indian origins.
A legendary figure amongst musicians and audiences world-wide, Glen Velez is the first percussionist to gain international recognition as a successful solo artist with frame drums. His extensive array of frame drum innovations and sounds have inspired collaborations with an epic and eclectic list of renowned artists, including Steve Reich, the Paul Winter Consort, Suzanne Vega, Maya Beiser, Tan Dun and Pat Metheny.
Bassist Scott Hogan held the groove with the Bernie Worrell Orchestra for several years and began touring with the pop group Hanson while still a student in high school. Hogan studied with jazz bassists John Patitucci and Mike Richmond, and has a voice all his own on the five-string electric fretless bass.
It is a sheer delight to witness the mesmerizing artistry of Loire Cotler and Glen Velez.
Separately their talents can leave one breathless, while together they are forging new ground in this ageless pairing of voice and drums.
This evening’s collaboration with the John Ehlis Trio provides a rare opportunity to hear these master artists stretch out in a different kind of setting.
