Seung-Hee & Jamie Stewardson Quintet
Seung-Hee, voice/compositions
Jamie Stewardson, guitar/compositions
Tim Ray, piano
John Lockwood, bass
George Schuller, drums

After a series of very successful performances in Boston area, vocalist/composer Seung-Hee and guitarist/composer Jamie Stewardson reunite at Ryles this summer on June 11th, 2014 to co-lead a veteran quintet featuring pianist Tim Ray, bassist John Lockwood and percussionist George Schuller. From South Korea, now residing in NYC, Seung-Hee is calling attention to her unique voice and striking talent with standout compositions, writing and arrangements.

Jamie Stewardson

George Schuller appears on Stewardsons critically acclaimed Fresh Sound recording Jhaptal, which Fred Grand of the Jazz Review (UK) describes as, Echoes of serialism and Indian Classical music occasionally surface, but are never allowed to choke what is first and foremost an improvisers freebop outfit&Stewardsons unique frame of reference and well-chosen instrumentation give this group a refreshing identity.... George Carroll of Ejazznews says, Stewardsons compositional bent is something to be reckoned with. He uses rich, precise melodic and harmonic lines to paint his music&. And David Adler of Jazz Times says, &Jamie Stewardson is a striking player&His guitar has just a touch of distorted bite, recalling early John McLaughlin, or Kevin Eubanks with Dave Holland"

Seung-Hee

Her latest recording 'Sketches on the Sky' was described as; "the purity of a voice as haunting as it is arresting. The wordless adventure turns darker, almost threatening, on 'Winter and Then' before returning to its unbridled whirls through the nine-minute 'Sketch Part II'. Seung-Hee's lyrical explorations prove even more imaginative." ~ Christopher Loudon /Jazz Times

"Seung-Hee possesses the composure of a seasoned chanteuse while demonstrating broader qualities that contain refined arranging skills, classical training, and multilingual singing. The South Korean native represents a soulfully empathetic performer and a composer who's not afraid to take chances as witnessed in Sketches on the Sky". ~ Mark F. Turner /All About Jazz

"As a producer, I look for artists who have a unique point of view... Seung-Hee is such an artist." ~ John McNeil

Sketch Part I, a sweeping exercise that showcases the purity of a voice as haunting as it is arresting. The wordless adventure turns darker, almost threatening, on Winter and Then, before returning to its unbridled whirls through the nine-minute "Sketch, Part II." Seung-Hees lyrical explorations prove even more imaginative. Fitting Korean lyrics to Charlie Hadens Bohm So Ri, she shapes a slow-meling, softly budding answer to Winter and Then and, writing in English, beautifully pairs Bill Evans An Elliptical Note with gently undulating free verse. ~ Christopher Loudon / Jazz Times, March 2013

"Brooklyn-based jazz vocalist Seung-Hee possesses the composure of a seasoned chanteuse while demonstrating broader qualities that contain refined arranging skills, classical training, and multilingual singing. The South Korean native represents a soulfully empathetic performer and a composer who's not afraid to take chances as witnessed in Sketches on the Sky". ~ Mark F. Turner / All About Jazz

"Seung-Hee has a really classic approach  not 50s torch, but that really inventive period of the 70s, when female jazz vocalists were really breaking free  finding new ways to inflect their notes, and often adding their own words too  in ways that made the music even more expressive than before!" ~ DustyGroove.com "Her voice ricochets off the snapping bop beat like light bouncing off of a prism...has folk nuances, like gentle shades allowing sun to gleam through." ~ George Harris / All About Jazz, Bay Area/Chicago

"A unique voice'
~ Richard Dyer / Boston Globe "On the title track, where the singer's voice is a finely tuned instrument, singing a stunning wordless melody followed by verses in Korean, as her quintet performs sumptuous music..." ~ Mark F. Turner / All About Jazz NY

Boubacar Diabate & SambaLolo
Boubacar Diabate with Jeli vocals and guitar leads with sultry grooves made up of an orchestra of guitars, bass, djembes and drums played by masters of the arts. Bolon, mbiras, kora, keyboards and other modern instruments all rendering the traditional songs by today's best musical talents in the tradition of griot songs and instruments of the Mande people.

West African griot singer and traditional multi-instrumentalist, Boubacar Diabate, from Bamako, Mali comes from the Mande lineage. He has combined traditional West African rhythms with modern influences to create his own contemporary Malian griot music.

Songwriter, storyteller, guitarist and vocalist, Boubacar brings his original compositions and arrangements to deliver powerful vocals and distinctive guitar melodies, with a unique sound likened to the Kora, a traditional harp made from hardwood and calabash.

In Bambara and Manding, Boubacar Diabate sings and plays with his group SambaLolo, creating a full spectrum of traditional to contemporary Malian music, fusing Blues, Jazz, Reggae and Bluegrass. He sings of our common experience of love, life and humanity in the age-old tradition of Griot storytelling through song.

Who else performs a Commodores/Santana medley before breaking into the funkiest renditions of Stevie Wonders' biggest hits or soulful versions of Tower of Power classics (along with a sprinkling of Chicago, Blood Sweat And Tears, and CCR)? If you like big brass, funky back beats and screaming guitar licks, then you'll love One Moe Time. With energy as palpable as it is entertaining, this band lays down a groove that will move your soul... and your feet!
