Downbeat Magazine's Scott Yanow has called Young "An innovative arranger... an adventurous, hard swinging soloist, and a sensitive accompanist."
Internationally acclaimed jazz pianist and composer Bradley Young makes his New York City debut at Café Noctambulo at 8 pm on October 27th with a special tribute to the prolific trumpet genius and icon, Chet Baker. Presented by Lampkin Music Group and Christoper Gines, I Remember Chet: Reflections on the Legacy and Music of Chet Baker, also features trumpet and flugelhorn great Randy Brecker and renowned jazz singer, Martha Lorin. Also sharing the stage are Steve LaSpina on bass and Jon DiFiore on drums.

Young, who met Baker in Chicago in 1981, shared a personal and musical friendship with the singing trumpet master, which lasted until Baker's untimely death in 1988. I Remember Chet is Young's spoken, sung and played tribute to Baker, with whom he produced the album Chet in Chicago. According to Young, the show will be “a romantic and nostalgic look back at Baker's life and legacy." The group will perform songs from some of Chet's most admired recordings, including many of his favorite standards from the Great American Songbook, including “My Funny Valentine," “Old Devil Moon," “How Deep is the Ocean" and more.

Young is currently based in Los Angeles, playing piano at top-shelf venues such as The Pilsner Room, The Aldabella Winery, The Port, Cook's Chapel, and the world- famous Lighthouse Café. Downbeat magazine's Scott Yanow has called Young “An innovative arranger..an adventurous, hard swinging soloist, and a sensitive accompanist."

Multiple Grammy Award-winner jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker has been a musical force for more than four decades, playing trumpet and flugelhorn on hundreds of albums with a wide range of A-list performers.

Based in the New York Metropolitan area, international jazz singer Martha Lorin continues her close collaborations with the best musicians in the business, garnering praise for the beauty of her voice and her exceptional way with a lyric.

With a rhythm section that includes bassist Steve LaSpina and drummer Jon DiFiori, I Remember Chet will be a cool evening.

I Remember Chet: Reflections on the Legacy and Music of Chet Baker plays at 8 pm on Thursday, October 27th at Café Noctambulo at Pangea, New York's hot supper club, located at 178 2nd Ave. at 12th Street. There's $20 music charge and $20 food/drink minimum. Call 212- 955-0900 to make reservations.

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!
