Surel's Place Presents: Boom Tic Boom

Jazz
“Ms. Miller is a drummer, bandleader and composer with an aesthetic of limber poise, drawn at once to brisk maneuvers and deep grooves.” –Nate Chinen, The New York Times Hailed by Downbeat as one of the top 20 jazz drummers, Allison Miller marries her love of composition, drumming, and community in the form of her critically acclaimed band, Boom Tic Boom. Described as cinematic chamber jazz, this leading-edge sextet’s music—featuring Jenny Scheinman on violin, Myra Melford on piano, Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Ben Goldberg on clarinet, Todd Sickafoose on bass, and Miller on drums- is at turns challenging and accessible, teasing and tough, virtuosic but never overbearing, and always grooving. Miller’s compositions reflect her diverse musical upbringing and versatile palette and she aims to, in true collective spirit, highlight each member of the band. This year marks Boom Tic Boom’s 10 year anniversary and they will be celebrating with the release of their 5th album on Royal Potato Family. The band has evolved over the years developing a truly unique sound. The current material is full of surprises and has been described as a celebratory genre-busting organic mash up of Bach, clave, klezmer, and the Jazz Messengers.

Boise Jazz Society present the Emmet Cohen Trio

Jazz
Emmet Cohen with Kyle Poole (drums) and Russell Hall (bass) Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen has emerged as one of his generation's pivotal figures in music and the related arts. A recognized prodigy, Cohen began Suzuki method piano instruction at age three, and his playing quickly became a mature melding of musicality, technique, and concept. Downbeat observed that his "nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary indicate he's above any convoluted technical showmanship." In the same spirit, Cohen himself has noted that playing jazz is "about communicating the deepest levels of humanity and individuality; it's essentially about connections," both among musicians and with audiences. He leads his namesake ensemble, the "Emmet Cohen Trio," is a vibrant solo performer, and is in constant demand as a sideman. Possessing a fluid technique, an innovative tonal palette, and an extensive repertoire, Cohen plays with the command of a seasoned veteran and the passion of an artist fully devoted to his medium. Besides leading the "Emmet Cohen Trio," Cohen has appeared regularly with Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Jimmy Cobb, George Coleman, Jimmy Heath, Tootie Heath, Houston Person, Kurt Elling, Billy Hart, and Brian Lynch, among others. Cohen is also a member of Christian McBride's trio "Tip City," the "Herlin Riley Quartet," and the "Ali Jackson Trio," and serves as pianist and music director for jazz vocalist and television personality Lea DeLaria. His recordings include "Masters Legacy Series featuring Ron Carter" (2018); "Masters Legacy Series featuring Jimmy Cobb" (2017); "New Directions" (2016) with Herlin Riley; "Questioned Answer" (2014), co-produced with Brian Lynch; "Infinity" (2013), featuring his Italian Trio; and his acclaimed debut CD "In the Element" (2011), with bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Rodney Green.
