Dave Samuels

Dave Samuels

CroatiaDave Samuels se etablirao kao vrhunski izvođač na udaraljkama s batićima u svojoj generaciji. Prepoznatljiv je po svježem zvuku i kreativnom pristupu vibrafonu i marimbi. Samuels je pokazao svoju svestranost i stekao svjetsko priznanje izvodeći i snimajući sa širokim spektrom umjetnika u rasponu od Gerrya Mulligana, Oscara Petersona, Cheta Bakera, Stana Getza, Carle Bley i Pata Methenya i Yellowjackets, Brucea Hornsbya, Franka Zappe, Fantasy Banda i Spyro Gyra.

Kroz više od deset godina, Samuels je nastupao i snimao sa svojom grupom „The Caribbean Jazz Project“ čiji najnoviji CD „Afro Bop Alliance“  pokazuje da je „The Caribbean Jazz Project“ najinventivniji latino jazz ansambl ovog i svih prošlih vremena. Album je dobio Latin Grammy i bio je također nominiran za Grammy. Prethodni CD-i „Her and Now – Live in Concert“ i „Birds of a Feather“ bili su nominirani za Best Latin Jazz Recording. Njihov snimak „The Gathering“ osvojio je Grammy 2003. godine za najbolji latino jazz snimak. Neki od njegovih ostalih snimaka uključuju „Remembrances“, udaraljkaško djelo koje donosi naručeni marimba koncert za komorni orkestar i solista, skladatelja Jeffa Beala i „Tjaderized – A Tribute to Cal Tjader“ (Verve), djelo kojem su doprinos dali neki Calovi kolege iz sastava: Chick Corea, Eddie Palmieri, Clare Fischer, Ray Barretto, Michael Wolff and Karl Perazzo kao i nastupi Davea Valentina i Davida Sancheza.

Još jedan od Samuelsovih projekata je „Double Image –The vibe-marimba duo“ kojeg su činili Davea Samuels i David Friedman, a proslavili su i tridesetu godišnjicu zajedničkog izvođenja. 1974. su ova dva majstora udaraljki prvi puta stvorili jedinstvenu kombinaciju vibrafona i marimbe. Ono što je nastalo bio je novi zvuk i pristup koji je postao standard za sve udaraljkaše. Njihove snimke su dobile vrlo pohvalne kritike, a izvedbe su opisane kao „očaravajuće“. Double Image predstavlja glazbu koja obuhvaća više stilova – od jazz standarda i originalnih skladbi do skladanih komada i spontane improvizacije.

Samuelsova dugogodišnja povezanost sa Spyro Gyrom trajala je od 1977. do 1994. i uključuje 20 snimki. Tijekom tog vremena, osim što su nominirani za nagradu Grammy, grupa je bila nazvana #1 „Contemporary“ jazz umjetnika i „Contemporary“ jazz grupa 80-ih od strane Billboard magazina. Povrh njegovog umjetničkog djelovanja, Samuels je i cijenjeni pedagog i autor, a neki od njegovih novih radova mogu se naći na MalletWorks.com i JazzBooks.com. Samuels je proglašen “Best Vibes Player” u Jazziz i Modern Drummer magazinima i dobio je brojne Grammy nominacije.

United-KingdomDave Samuels has established himself as the top mallet player of his generation. He is recognized for his fresh new sound and creative approach to both the vibraphone and marimba. Samuels has demonstrated his versatility and gained world wide recognition by performing and recording with a broad scope of artists ranging from Gerry Mulligan, Oscar Peterson, Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Carla Bley and Pat Metheny to the Yellowjackets, Bruce Hornsby, Frank Zappa, The Fantasy Band and Spyro Gyra.

For over a decade, Samuels has been performing and recording with his group The Caribbean Jazz Project whose most recent CD ‘Afro Bop Alliance’ serves notice that the CJP is the most thoroughly inventive Latin Jazz ensembles of this or any era. The album received a Latin Grammy and was also nominated for a Grammy. Previous cd’s ‘Her and Now – Live in Concert’ and ‘Birds of a Feather’ were nominated for “Best Latin Jazz Recording”. Their recording ‘The Gathering’ won the Grammy in 2003 for ‘Best Latin Jazz Recording’. Some of his other recording projects include ‘Remembrances’, a percussion recording that features a commissioned marimba concerto for chamber orchestra and soloist composed by Jeff Beal, and ‘Tjaderized – A Tribute to Cal Tjader’ (Verve) that features contributions from some of Cal’s former bandmates Chick Corea, Eddie Palmieri, Clare Fischer, Ray Barretto, Michael Wolff and Karl Perazzo as well as performances by Dave Valentin and David Sanchez.

Another one of Samuels project’s Double Image—the vibe-marimba duo consisting of Dave Samuels & David Friedman—celebrates thirty years of performing together. It was 1974 when these two masters of mallet percussion first created the unique combination of vibraphone and marimba. What emerged was a totally new sound and approach that has set a new standard for mallet percussionists everywhere.
Their recordings have received critical acclaim and their performances have been described as “spellbinding”. Double Image performs music which spans many styles – from jazz standards and original compositions to through-composed pieces and spontaneous improvisations.

Samuels’ longtime association with Spyro Gyra lasted from 1977 to 1994 and includes 20 recordings. During that time, the Grammy-nominated group was named #1 Contemporary Jazz Artist and Contemporary Jazz Group of the ´80s by Billboard magazine .

In addition to his playing, Samuels is a respected educator and author and some of his new works can be found at MalletWorks.com and JazzBooks.com. Samuels has been voted “Best Vibes Player” in both Jazziz and Modern Drummer magazines and received numerous Grammy nominations.

Dave Samuels is sponsored by Yamaha and Malletech.

OrKestr Percussion

OrKestr Percussion

Ensemble de percussions du Conservatoire de Lyon (France)

 GROUP LEADER: Jean-Luc Rimey-Meille

Croatia

 

Kratka biografija:
OrKestr Percussion
je veliki sastav klavijaturnih udaraljki čiji su članovi studenti viših godina odsjeka za udaraljke Konzervatorija u Lyonu / Francuska.

Osobitost ovog sastava omogućava studentima da sviraju novi udaraljkaški repertoar sastavljen od originalnih djela (Pir od Yana Meresza, Memoari ribe mjesečarke od Jean-Luc Rimey-Meillea..), aranžmana klasične glazbe (Žar-ptica od Igora Stravinskog) kao i djela jazz glazbenika (Pat Metheny) i rocka (Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Gong, Yes, Genesis…).

Odabir glazbala je jako važan za zvuk ovog orkestra jer osim marimbe, vibrafona, ksilofona, glockenspiela i cjevastih zvona konzervatorij iz Lyona posjeduje i mnogo posebnih udaraljki poput kromatskih kompleta tom-toma (boobams), wood blocka, gongova, kravljh zvona (Cencerros) i crotalesa. Sve ovo nadopunjuju i timpani te cjeloviti komplet latinoameričkih udaraljki.

Obzirom na veliki broj izvodjača, jedna od važnih odlika OrKestr Percussion jest i orkestralno načelo da po dvoje ili troje studenata na marimbi i vibrafonu sviraju istu dionicu, poput primjerice članova gudačkog orkestra. To je potpuno novo iskustvo za udaraljkaše koji uglavnom poznaju solističku orkestralnu izvodjačku praksu. Orkestrom ravna zborska i orkestralna dirigentica Muguette Rimey-Meille koja je takodjer i udaraljkašica, što joj omogućuje da bude potpuno upućena u zahtjeve ovakvog sastava.

OrKestr Percussion postoji od 2006. i nastupao je već dvadesetak puta u prelijepim dvoranama: CNSM de Lyon, Théâtre de Macon, Espace Jean Poperen de Meyzieu, Théâtre de la Vignette de Montpellier, Espace Eole de Craponne…  2010./2011. godine, ansambl će nastupati u Théâtre d’Annonay, u Limonest, Saint Lager kao i u Bjelovaru u Hrvatskoj.

Short bio:
Percussion Orchestra is a band of keyboard percussion instruments, whose members are senior students of the percussion section of the Conservatory in Lyon / France.
The peculiarity of this structure allows students to play a new percussion repertoire consists of original works (Festin de Yan Maresz, Les Mémoires d’un Poisson Lune de Jean-Luc Rimey-Meille…), arrangements of classical music (Firebird by Igor Stravinsky) and the works of jazz musicians (Pat Metheny) and rock (Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Gong, Yes, Genesis…).

The choice of instruments is very important for the sound of this orchestra because beside of Marimbas, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Tubular Bells, the Conservatory of Lyon has developed special instruments such as keyboards tom-tom (boobams) Wood Blocks, gongs, cowbells (Cencerros), small cymbals granted (Rattlesnakes) … All this is complemented by the timpani and a complete set of Latin American percussion.

Depending of the project and the number of musicians, an important feature of Orkestr Percussion is the game „pupitres“ of Marimbas & Vibraphones where 2 or 3 students playing exactly the same part as the members of symphony orchestra. The perception is totally new for musicians who have a playing experience more “solo” in a console percussion orchestra.

This unit is under the direction of Muguette Rimey-Meille that combines qualities of choral and orchestral percussionist but also allowing it to be closer to the requirements of such composition.

This formation as existed since 2006 and has already performed many times in in the beautiful concert halls: CNSM de Lyon, Théâtre de Mâcon, Espace Jean de Poperen Meyzieu, Théâtre de la Vignette de Montpellier, Espace de Eole Craponne …

2010/2011. the ensemble will perform at the Théâtre d’Annonay in Limonest, Saint Lager and in Bjelovar, Croatia.
