The MARS 4-tet
" . . . .they ain’t your Grandma’s jazz band."

49 West is proud to welcome back eclectic jazz super group, the MARS 4-tet. They move effortlessly from the classic jazz of Horace Silver and Herbie Hancock to the pop hits of Gino Vannelli, Peter Gabriel and Led Zeppelin. Get ready for energy, humor and groove. The band features acclaimed recording and performing artists bassist Max Murray, saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk, drummer Frank Russo and guitarist Donato Soveiro.

As a long time member of Afro Bop Alliance, bassist Max Murray shared a Latin Grammy Award and a Grammy nomination for the 2008 album Caribbean Jazz Project with Dave Samuels. The Boston bred musician is a former U.S. Naval Academy Band member.

Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk has toured many continents since leaving Alberta, Canada and is lauded for his heightened powers on the saxophone. Jazz Times praised his “considerable chops” while MusikReviews.com described his “amazing saxophone playing.” He is a recognized master of modern jazz, hard bop and funk.

Drummer Frank Russo enjoyed a long career with the U.S. Naval Academy Band, and has since won critical praise for his work with many jazz greats. His recordings have gained recognition from Downbeat, Jazz Times and Modern Drummer. He has performed at numerous jazz festivals in North America, Asia, and Europe.

Guitarist Donato Soviero has appeared with numerous groups in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. Like his bandmates, he has performed at all the top Washington, D.C. concert venues. Tom Cole, host of WPFW’S “G Strings” said “Donato's beautiful phrasing and impressive improvising took me aback. He’s one of those real surprises.”

His live shows amaze audiences with his deft fingerstyle instrumentals and his ability to create bass, rhythm and lead parts on one instrument at the same time through digital looping. He enjoys sharing stories behind the eclectic titles of his pieces as well as the various tunings and techniques he uses.

Dan Haas & Bens Bones
8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Ben's Bones, a northeast regional band from Annapolis, Maryland, has been playing their exciting brand of acoustic rock at many of the area's best clubs for over 5 years. They've opened for bands such as the Gin Blossoms, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dick Dale, The Presidents of the United States of America, and The Church. Frontman Dan Haas has recorded with members of the Barenaked Ladies and Guster.

Led by the unique songwriting and vocal abilities of Haas, the band has received heavy Baltimore/Washington and Philadelphia airplay on fine stations like WHFS, WRNR, WXPN, and DC101. In November and December of 2003, they had the number one song on XM radio's Unsigned channel. They've performed all over Maryland and DC, as well as in Virginia, New York, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Atlanta. In the spring of 2003, the band sold out the Ram's Head OnStage in Annapolis, a high capacity venue that hosts national acts. It was the largest crowd the Ram's Head had held in over 18 months. Since then the band has performed to sold out crowds at the Ram's Head OnStage, the Ram's Head Live in Baltimore, and IOTA, the popular original music venue in Arlington, VA.

In October of 2004, the band took 1st place in a national contest, sponsored by Icehouse, for a performance slot on The Rock Boat. On the boat, the band played with a large number of acts including Sister Hazel, Tonic, Cowboy Mouth, Pat McGee Band, Shawn Mullins, Michael Tolcher, David Ryan Harris, Gavin DeGraw, Virginia Coalition, Chuck Carrier, and others.

"Goodbye Moon" was recorded in the winter of 2002 and was named one of the top ten "do it yourself" albums of the year by Performing Songwriter magazine. The band's newest studio album is "Wishful Thinking." Producer Frank Marchand (Jimmie's Chicken Shack, Allmighty Senators) encouraged the band to focus on many of their up tempo numbers for "Wishful Thinking," and the result is an exciting rock based record.

The band's most recent release is "Live at the Ram's Head OnStage," a live recording of a performance at the venue in Annapolis, MD. This album documents much of the new material that the band has been playing at recent shows.

Honorable Mentschen is a jazz trio composed of pianist Harry Appelman, trumpeter Dave Ballou and percussionist Jon Seligman. The group performs a mix of standards and jazz repertoire with some original compositions, bringing a uniquely free and minimalist interpretation to the music by virtue of the ensemble's "non-standard" instrumentation. In the manner of such bass-less groups as the Paul Motian-Bill Frisell-Joe Lovano trio and Lee Konitz' ensembles, the Honorable Mentschen are able to steer well known material into adventurous new directions.

Cold Spring Jazz Quartet
8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

For over a decade Cold Spring Jazz Quartet has appeared regularly in nightclubs, restaurants and concert venues in the Baltimore-Washington area, winning a broad and loyal following. Favorite venues have included The Tremont Hotel, Ixia Restaurant, and the Minoan Room at Meli. Recent private engagements have included Stella Maris’s annual wine-tasting event, concerts at Cylburn Arboretum and at the Greenmount Street Festival.For smaller rooms, the group performs as a drumless trio. But at any size, CSJQ can create a variety of different sounds and moods—from a swing-and-standards combo to a bebop group or blues band—depending upon the audience and venue.CSJQ’s debut CD, Same Place. Different Time, includes passionate performances of classic bop and instrumentals such as Bud Powell’s “Webb City” and Dexter Gordon’s “Cheesecake.” It also features exciting original compositions by Brian Smith and Mark Osteen. Osteen’s vocals, which distinguish CSJQ from most straight-ahead jazz groups, lend songs such as “Doxy” and “The Old Country” a distinctive flavor.The group’s second CD, Urban Pastoral, reflects the group’s versatility and range of influences, showcasing CSJQ’s contemporary polish while paying tribute to the band’s deep roots in bebop and blues. The “City” side opens with Peggy Lee’s “I Love Being Here with You,” and features Osteen’s insouciant vocal. The next five tracks offer a variety of urban sounds, from Latin jazz (Gary Kerner’s smooth samba, “Highpockets,” as well as a smoking rendition of Jobim’s “Favela” ) and bebop (Monk’s “Hackensack,” Horace Silver’s “Tippin’”) to the risque city blues of “Doodlin,’” which spotlights Osteen’s sassy singing.

The “Country” side presents a set of sharp original compositions—Brian Smith’s “Perception,” Osteen’s haunting ballad “Fallow,” and multi-rhythmic “Black Olive,” along with Smith’s driving “The Big ‘C’”—punctuated by two standards: a snappy take on “Is You Is” and a concluding, lyrical duo version of “You Don’t Know What Love Is.”

Urban Pastoral: it’s current. It’s classic. Above all, it’s cool.
