Ethnomusicology Professor Tamir Hendelman recording new CD; other summer activities

June 30th, 2011 · 3 Comments

We have received an interesting update from Tamir Hendelman, who also appears to have an exciting summer planned. After another exciting year at UCLA, this June he will be recording his fourth CD with the Jeff Hamilton Trio, a follow-up to last fall?s Symbiosis, which topped the Jazzweek charts.

Also on the summer schedule:

A 4th of July concert with the Trio in Ancona, Italy kicks off a European tour with the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra featuring vocalist/guitarist John Pizzarelli in tribute to Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington. The tour will include stops in Villingen-Schwenningen (July 7), the North Sea Jazz Fest (July 8)- featuring Dutch vocal star Trijntje Oosterhuis, The Gran Canaries Jazz Festival (July 9-10), Cordoba Guitarra Festival (July 11) and the Festival Da Jazz in St. Moritz (July 13.)

On July 24-30 Tamir Hendelman will travel to Port Townsend, Washington?s CENTRUM JAZZ WORKSHOP for a week of workshops and concerts with the Jeff Hamilton Trio and fellow faculty such as Paquito D?Rivera, John Clayton and more.

Tamir returns to Southern California in August for concerts with a quartet led by brilliant guitarist Graham Dechter and the world-class rhythm section of John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton. They will then record Graham?s second CD, which will also feature a half dozen arrangements Tamir collaborated on with Graham.

Finally, Tamir is conducting a series of workshops on the Great American Songbook in Southern California- for musicians, students and music fans- centered around improvisation, accompaniment and arranging.

    Los Angeles is so much richer culturally for the presence of Tamir Hendelman, John Clayton, and other UCLA faculty. These guys have not had their passion dulled by academia one bit. Some of the most relevant jazz today is going on not only in New York, but right in our backyard here in Los Angeles.
