 The George Colligan Trio – CD release for “More Powerful” 

 

 “Mr. Colligan favors an earthy, assertive style, putting him in a lineage that includes McCoy Tyner, John Hicks and Mulgrew Miller.​”– New York Times

 “Colligan is an equally deserving torch-carrier of the piano trio tradition….” John Kelman, All About Jazz

 

 “As a creative artist, he’s really up there…. In terms of technique, knowledge of music and improvisational creativity, there aren’t a whole lot of cats from his generation that are any better than him. As a matter of fact, I can’t think of any.”– Don Braden in a blindfold test for Jazz Times

 

Renowned pianist and composer George Colligan, returns to Jazzway for the Baltimore CD release of his latest CD on the Whirlwind label “More Powerful”.  Colligan is not only one of the great jazz pianists of his generation, but an artist who has earned an international reputation as a multi-instrumentalist (drums, trumpet, organ, keyboards), composer, accompanist, teacher, and bandleader. “More Powerful” is his 28th album as a leader and features some of New York’s finest talents in the great Linda Oh on Bass, Rudy Royston on drums, and Nicole Glover on tenor saxophone. and soprano saxophone. The Jazzway concert features Colligan on piano, Matthew Parrish on bass and local jazz virtuoso, Lee Pearson on drums.

 

Colligan is the winner of the 2015 DownBeat Magazine Critics Poll (Keyboard), and has had a long association as a member of the legendary Jack DeJohnette’s ensemble. With over 130 albums to date as an accompanist, Colligan has worked with a long list of luminaries, including Buster Williams, Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Ravi Coltrane, and many others. His musical style incorporates everything from showtunes to funk, from free improvisation to 20th century classical music. His performances include dazzling technique as well as mature restraint. Colligan was on the faculty of the Juilliard School for two years and is currently a Professor at Portland State University.

"Ms. Clarks sound evokes not [Billie] Holiday but Drather a less operatic Sarah Vaughan fused with the more animated side of Shirley Horn, a singer who also liked to take her time. Ms. Clarks voice is rich, her phrasing unfussy, her jazz embellishments minimal. -- Stephen Holden, New York Times

 

 

Like [Sarah Vaughan], her natural sound is almost operatic in its richness, but pure jazz in its improvisational sassiness. But when she brings her remarkable instrument to bear on those pop hits of the post-nuclear age, which she clearly loves, she creates something new and amazing. . . All of which begs an additional question: Why has Sharon Clark been so overlooked, particularly in New York, for all this time? That is surely going to change." Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal

 

 

"A revelation . . . I never thought I'd hear a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah at her best, but now I have." JazzTimes

 

Biography

 Washington, D.C. standout Sharón Clark has brought festival and concert audiences to their feet across the U.S. and Europe. Her New York run drew raves from the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal, and she won New York’s Bistro Award for Best Vocalist.

 

Ms. Clark has made multiple international tours in recent years, making her debut in Israel and returning to Russia, where she has developed a major following. Her most recent release, “Do it Again — My Tribute to Shirley Horn,” is on its third printing, and she grabs top honors wherever she goes.

 

Ms. Clark won the Gold Medal and $10,000 top prize at the Savannah Music Festival's American Traditions Competition. She then took first place in the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition, which offers a $2,500 prize along with a featured appearance with the Baltimore Symphony.

 

Ms. Clark appears regularly in DC at Blues Alley and Loews Madison Hotel. A featured soloist with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, the Richmond Symphony, and the Baltimore Symphony, Clark has headlined the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, the Cape May Jazz Festival and the Savannah Music Festival. Both the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and The Ludacris Foundation chose Ms. Clark to perform for their separate tributes to Quincy Jones.
