Bio

Extended bio arrow

It’s said (by Lee Metcalf, The Villager) that SHERYL BAILEY can “go from zero to blazing in two beats”, but she is continually praised for never sacrificing melody and lyricism for technique. “She balances superior technical skills with a strong lyrical sense and swinging touch…” continues Metcalf, and Joe Taylor of Soundstage says “Bailey combines an astonishing command of the fingerboard with a seemingly endless flow of melodic invention.”

Her years of dedication and focus won her 3rd place in the Thelonius Monk International Jazz Guitar competition in 1995, and she was chosen as a Jazz Ambassador for the U.S. State Department in 2000 for a South American tour.  She teaches guitar at the Berklee College of Music, further evidence of highly regarded playing and teaching chops.

A partial list of others with whom she has performed and recorded with includes Richard Bona, George Garzone, Lincoln Goines, Kim Plainfield, Bill O’Connell, Mike LeDonne, Irene Cara, Lea Delaria, Jack Wilkins, Howard Alden, Shingo Okudaira, Ingrid Jensen, Dwayne Burno, Tommy Campbell, Simon Woolf, Alex Garnett and Ken Peplowski.

To date, Sheryl has 9 CDs out under her name, and a live DVD, The Sheryl Bailey 3 Live in NYC (Mel Bay). Each successive release has drawn more accolades. Of Live at the Fat Cat, Joe Taylor says, “...this disc proves again that Sheryl Bailey is one of the most gifted and exciting jazz guitarists on the scene”, and that she is a “jazz composer of the first order”.

Though RON OSWANSKI is one of the most prodigious Hammond B3 players on a jazz scene rife with rising organ talent, he’s just starting to introduce himself as a force in his own right. Also an accomplished accordion player, Oswanski has forged a lithe, lyrical and rhythmically charged contemporary sound steeped in the B3’s earthy roots but informed by post-bop developments. With his finely calibrated sense of dynamics and expansive harmonic palette, he can burn with the best of them, and then slow things down for an exquisitely crafted ballad.

Oswanski has been keeping company with formidable musicians for more than two decades. Since entering the jazz big leagues in the early 1990s as a teenager recruited by Maynard Ferguson’s Big Bop Nouveau Band, he’s collaborated with some of jazz’s most creative figures, performing with the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Tim Ries and The Rolling Stones Project, Jack Wilkins and Mike Clark, Milt Hinton, Myron Walden’s Countryfied, Dave Berger and the Sultans of Swing, as well as popular music icons The Temptations, Aretha Franklin and Blood, Sweat and Tears. Vibraphone master Dave Samuels, the driving force behind the Grammy Award-winning Caribbean Jazz Project, launched the Organik Vibe Trio several years ago as a vehicle for collaborating with Oswanski, leading to the enthralling 2010 session Moscow. He also plays widely with Israeli guitarist Oz Noy’s trio with drummer Nate Smith, the Dan Willis Band with percussionist John Hollenbeck, guitarist Sheryl Bailey’s Trio, and Carl Fischer’s (Billy Joel) Groove Project.

A seasoned creative and working musician, IAN FROMAN moved to the US from Ottawa, Canada, where he began playing drums in his early teens, to study Jazz Performance, first at Berklee College of Music (B.M., 1984; selected to attend the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida to study with Elvin Jones), and then with Miroslav Vitous at the New England Conservatory (M.M., 1986). Ian is a faculty member at Berklee College of Music, Drummers Collective, New School University and City College of New York.

Ian lives in New York City, where he has performed and recorded with many of the city’s top artists. His extensive touring in North America, Europe, and Asia has included club, concert, and festival appearances, as well as television and radio broadcasts with such artists as: John Abercrombie, Jerry Bergonzi, Michael Brecker, Gary Burton, Marc Copland, Garry Dial, Mathew Garrison, George Garzone, Larry Goldings, Mick Goodrick, Larry Grenadier, Tim Hagans, Craig Handy, John Hart, Kevin Hayes, Dave Holland, Dave Liebman, Rick Margitza, Cecil McBee, Ron McClure, Ben Monder, George Mraz, Mike Stern, John Taylor, Mirosolav Vitous, and Kenny Wheeler.

He has received two Canadian Juno Awards (1998, 1999), two Jazz Report Magazine awards (1998, 1999), and a West Coast Music Award (1998) for his work with the Canadian group Metalwood. Ian’s discography is also extensive. The range of his work can be appreciated by listening to his contributions to Rick Margitza’s Heart of Hearts, Sheryl Bailey’s Power of 3 CD’s, Wolfgang Schalk’s Quartet CD’s, The Mike Murley/David Braid Quartet, Laszlo Gardony’s The Secret, Manu Pekar’s Passages, Ahmad Mansour’s Penumbra, Episode, Oxiana and Tumbleweed.
