About

“Michel Gentile, Daniel Kelly and Rob Garcia, aka WORKS, bring their gift for improvisation and a vocabulary that enlarges the conversation with depth, humor and discovery that reminds us of why we are drawn to this music in the first place” (Paul Pines, Lake George Festival). WORKS is the driving force behind the vibrant non-profit organization Connection Works. This group has exploited its unique instrumentation of flute, piano and drums to forge a distinct and powerful musical voice, putting the “focus on the dynamic writing and deep simpatico of the trio itself” (The Village Voice). WORKS performs primarily as a trio, but has also placed itself at the center of several adventurous projects, from performing with classically influenced projects such as chamber orchestra and string quartet; to commissioning big band pieces featuring the trio; to playing with a long line of esteemed guests, such as jazz heavyweights Joe Lovano, Sheila Jordan, Dave Liebman, Joseph Jarman, Scott Colley, Donny McCaslin and many more. Their self-titled CD was named one of the best albums of 2013 by the prestigious Downbeat Magazine.Scott RobinsonOne of today's most wide-ranging instrumentalists, Scott Robinson has been heard on tenor sax with Chet Baker, on trumpet with Lionel Hampton's quintet, on alto clarinet with Paquito D'Rivera's clarinet quartet, and on bass sax with the New York City Opera. On these and other instruments including theremin and ophicleide, he has been heard with a cross-section of jazz's greats representing nearly every imaginable style of the music, from Braff to Braxton. Primarily a tenor saxophonist, Scott once placed directly below the great Sonny Rollins in the DownBeat Readers Poll. Scott has been heard numerous times on film, radio and television, and his discography now includes more than 260 recordings. Scott's collaborators on disc have included Frank Wess, Hank Jones, Joe Lovano, Ron Carter, and Bob Brookmeyer, and he has performed with the Grammy-winning Maria Schneider Orchestra for more than 30 years. His releases as a leader have garnered five-star reviews from Leonard Feather, DownBeat Magazine, Wall Street Journal and other respected sources worldwide, and have appeared in many Best-of-Year lists....

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
