Thana Alexa at The Jazz Gallery NYC

2017 and 2016 Downbeat Critic’s Poll Rising Female Vocalist, runner up in the 2014 Made in NY Jazz Competition, winner of the 2011 Jazzon Alpe-Adria International Competition and nominee in the category of Best Jazz Composition for the 2011 PORIN Awards - the Croatian Music Academy’s honor equivalent to the Grammy Awards in America. Thana Alexa released "Ode to Heroes", her  Harmonia Mundi Jazz Village debut in March 2015, an album of original compositions and vocal arrangements, which bring together elements of jazz, pop and world music. The album mainly features her engaging original compositions, along with vibrant takes on jazz standards like Shorter’s “Footprints,” Mingus’ “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat,” and Desmond and Dave Brubeck’s “Take 5.” Most importantly, it spotlights Alexa’s ability to engage in rewarding and illuminating musical conversation with some of the music’s most renowned and forward-thinking players. 

On her upcoming album "ONA" (set for release in June of 2018), Thana explores the feminine and the role women play in our world - a role that makes female influence and strength undeniable, but one that is more often than not overlooked and undervalued. Her music expresses the obligation she feels to make a relevant statement about the times in which we live. Thana takes a microscopic look at the lives of women, the mind, the soul, the sexuality and the fight within the female. The album integrates elements of jazz with soul, electronica, pop and world music to convey a message of strength, female empowerment, and the need to be the change we want to see in the world.

Alexa is an active member of Antonio Sanchez' touring ensemble Migration (Grammy winner for the Birdman film score as well as Pat Metheny’s drummer of 16 years) and has recorded two critically acclaimed albums with the group, New Life and The Meridian Suite, (Seamus Blake, John Escreet, Matt Brewer). Alexa also appears on three of guitarist Gene Ess's albums. The first two records (Fractal Attraction and Eternal Monomyth) - for which Alexa contributed vocals, compositions and lyrics - won the SESAC Jazz Award in 2015 and 2016. The group’s third album Absurdist Theater (Manuel Valera, Yasushi Nakamura, Clarence Penn) – for which Alexa contributed lyrics – was released in September of 2016.

John Ellis and Double Wide at Bar Lunatico (Brooklyn)

"John Ellis and Double-Wide” was formed in 2007, though its history starts long before that. In the mid 90’s John played a memorable gig in New Orleans with David Torkanowsky on keys, Herlin Riley on drums, the legendary Johnny Adams on vocals, and Matt Perrine on sousaphone. The feeling of the music that night, unburdened by stylistic constraints and with the sousaphone holding down the bass, made such an impression on John that he was determined to start a band with this instrumentation.

John has always wanted to be a conduit between the two cities he loves most: New Orleans, where he got his formative training, and New York City, where he’s made his home for the last 20 years. He set out with Double-Wide to do just that, enlisting drummer Jason Marsalis to join Matt Perrineas the New Orleans contingent, and inviting NYC-based organist and accordionist Gary Versace to round out the group. It was with great anticipation that the group met for the first time, when they convened to record their critically acclaimed debut album, Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow. The 4-star review in Downbeat called it “regionally tinctured and laced with a healthy dose of originality and flair.” The New York Times in a glowing review said “Rhythmically it has that New Orleans duality of being full of funk and lighter than air.”

Parlour Game at Bar Lunatico (Brooklyn)

Jenny Scheinman & Allison Miller’s PARLOUR GAME celebrates the popular roots of jazz. It honors the groove, the conversation, the game, and the women that made jazz a social music. It features four musicians that have been at the forefront of American music for nearly 20 years bending genres, creating new ways of playing, mixing it up. Now they get to groove.

Parlour Game was born on tour when Carmen Staaf and Tony Scherr were subbing for the piano and bass player in Allison Miller’s 'Boom Tic Boom'. There was an immediate chemistry. "Even the edgiest material swung,” says Miller, “and we realized that we had found something really special. It felt so good!”
