Trumpeter Tivey Blows into Catskill

Bravo to Catskill’s Planet Arts organization for continuing to bring hep jazz events to the Hudson Valley via their ASCAP award-winning one2one series. The next installment of this swinging continuum occurs this Saturday with a performance by trumpeter Rhys Tivey’s quartet.

Currently in its 10th season, one2one showcases “exceptional jazz artists in intimate settings and provides an outlet for musician/composers to present new and adventurous music, as well as innovative interpretations of jazz classics.” In the past, the series has hosted such luminaries as Dave Liebman, Bob Brookmeyer, Rufus Reid, Frank Kimbrough, Greg Osby, Ben Allison, Gary Smulyan, Karl Berger, Joe Magnarelli, and, most recently, Joe Locke. Tivey hails from New York and is the grandson of screen legend Elizabeth Taylor (he played “Amazing Grace” at the late actress’s funeral) and led the resident jazz quartet at Manhattan club Gallagher’s for two years, where he jammed with famed vocalist Jon Hendricks, trumpet king Lou Soloff, and other top players. His newest album, No Voice No More (Independent), features the great pianist Jean-Michel Pilc.

Here’s a clip of Tivey and band recording the album’s “Arjuna” in the studio:

The Rhys Tivey Quartet will perform at the historic Beattie Powers house in Catskill, New York, on May 23 at 5pm. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (518) 945-2669 or visit
