14th Annual Provincetown Jazz Festival
(Published: February 02, 2018)

The 14th Annual, 2018 Provincetown Jazz Festival will be held on August 9, 7:00pm at The Crown & Anchor in Provincetown and on August 13, 7:30pm at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, both located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

For 13 years the Provincetown Jazz Festival has presented jazz musicians from the United States, Canada, Brazil, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. This year we will feature five jazz musicians making their Provincetown Jazz Festival debuts:

• Cassandre McKinley is an Assistant Professor in the Voice Department at the Berklee College of Music and is best known for her voluminous voice, spirited emotional performances and a presence on stage that is exuberant, passionate, yet warm and disarming. Cassandre has shared the stage with Jay Geils (J. Geils Band), Dick Johnson (leader of the Artie Shaw Band), Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, Jerry Portnoy (Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters) and many more. She has toured and performed in venues across the country and her music has been heard on national and international radio stations. Cassandre found worldwide recognition with her jazz album "Til Tomorrow - Remembering Marvin Gaye" and Jazztimes Magazine hailed the work as "a rich and sensual salute." A long-awaited 4th album is due out in 2018. Cassandre will be accompanied by Jason Palmer on trumpet, Fred Boyle on piano, Ron Ormsby on bass, and Bart Weisman on drums.

• Jason Palmer (trumpet) has performed with Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Smith (the organist), Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Ravi Coltrane, Phil Woods, and many more. Jason was a recipient of the 2014 French American Cultural Exchange Jazz Fellowship and was named a 2011 Fellow in Music Composition by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Jason has toured over 30 countries with saxophonists Greg Osby, Grace Kelly, Matana Roberts, and has been a featured guest artist on multiple projects. Jason has released a number of CDs as a leader and is currently an Assistant Professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and a visiting Assistant Professor at Harvard University. Jason has presented master classes in Portugal, France, the UK, Russia, and Mexico. Jason will be accompanied by Fred Boyle on piano, Ron Ormsby on bass, and Bart Weisman on drums.

• Tim Ray Trio. Tim Ray (piano) is best known as long-time pianist for Lyle Lovett and has appeared on over 75 recordings including his just released Trio CD "Windows." Tim has performed with: Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, Gary Burton, Esperanza Spalding, Phil Woods, Scott Hamilton, Boston Pops, and many more. Tim has toured throughout the Americas, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, and this has included performances at Carnegie Hall, the White House, the Kennedy Center and appearances on the "The Tonight Show," "Late Night with David Letterman," "The Conan O'Brien Show," "Austin City Limits," and many other national TV and radio broadcasts. Tim will be accompanied by John Lockwood on bass and making his festival debut, Mark Walker on drums. All three are on the faculty of the Berklee College of Music.

• Daryl Sherman (vocals & piano) was born in Rhode Island but has been part of the New York City jazz scene since the mid 70s. In addition to jazz clubs and her renowned 14 year run at the Waldorf-Astoria where she played Cole Porter's Steinway, Daryl has performed with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Artie Shaw's '80s band with Dick Johnson, and guested frequently on Marian McPartland's NPR Piano Jazz. She tours the UK and has also been doing concerts and master classes in Japan, Berlin and Holland. Daryl has performed and recorded with: Dave McKenna, Bucky & John Pizzarelli, Ruby Braff, Ken Peplowski, Howard Alden, her dad, trombonist/bandleader, Sammy Sherman, and many more. The New York Times says, "Impeccable, delightful, swinging, signature jazz sound, a stylistic compendium of Billie Holiday and Blossom Dearie." Daryl will be accompanied by Bruce Abbott on sax, Ron Ormsby on bass, and Bart Weisman on drums.
