Bill Ware & the Upstate All Stars at Senate Garage July 14
July 14 @ 8:00 pm
Jazzstock presents Bill Ware & the Upstate All Stars.
The lineup of musicians include Bill Ware (vibes), Matt King (piano), John Menegon (bass), Jeff Siegel (drums) and special guest Teri Roiger (voice).
Vibraphonist, composer, bassist and producer Ware studied at Montclair State University and the Harlem Jazzmobile Workshop with Barry Harris. Ware was an innovator of the burgeoning acid jazz scene as an original member of Groove Collective, the band dominating the Giant Steps scene in New York City. While with Groove Collective, he was ‘discovered’ by renowned producer Gary Katz who introduced Ware to Steely Dan and from 1993-95, Ware toured with the Dan for its first live dates in a generation, recording the album Alive in America along the way.
Beyond performance, Ware has made important inroads as a composer in both contemporary classical music and film scoring. He orchestrated the Deborah Harry–Jazz Passengers songbook for performances with orchestra and has also composed three classical symphonies, multiple concerti, numerous soundtracks and other works.
Tickets are $25 and available at Jazzstock.com and Rhino Records at 6 North Front Street in Kingston
