Renee Rosnes, Ingrid Jensen, Nicole Glover, Alexa Tarantino, Noriko Ueda, Allison Miller
ARTEMIS is an international all-star group featuring six of the top performers on the jazz scene today: pianist Renee Rosnes, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, alto saxophonist/flutist Alexa Tarantino, tenor saxophonist Nicole Glover, bassist Noriko Ueda and drummer Allison Miller. Forget about gender – this is a significant and serious band that performs with passion, power and sensitivity. Their collective artistry creates unforgettable music-making of high-wire interplay and pure joy.
Their set played like an expertly crafted mixtape, moving from a knotty version of Thelonious Monk’s “Brilliant Corners” to a surprisingly dramatic arrangement of the Beatles’ “Fool on the Hill.”
