Joe Alterman -

In a recent feature on Joe Alterman in the Wall Street Journal, legendary writer Nat Hentoff wrote, 'Talk about the joy of jazz!...It's a pleasure to hear this music'You've got it!

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Alterman moved to New York in the fall of 2007 to study music at New York University, where he also earned his Masters Degree in Music. While there, he has studied with greats including Don Friedman, Joe Lovano and John Scofield.

He has performed at venues around the world including the Blue Note Jazz Club in Milan, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and Preservation Hall in New Orleans; he has led groups at venues in New York City including the Blue Note Jazz Club, the Iridium, the Kitano, and Dizzys Club Coca-Cola, among others. He also recently performed at the "Marian McPartland Piano Jazz All-Star Celebration" at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, as well as at Jack Kleinsinger Presents "Highlights in Jazz", as a part of the "Next Generation All-Stars," where he performed alongside tenor saxophone great Houston Person.

He and his trio have performed multiple times at the Blue Note Jazz Club as an opening act for greats including Les McCann, Ramsey Lewis, John Pizzarelli and Hiromi, among others. Alterman's most recent recording, Give Me The Simple Life, garnered much critical praise and reached #4 on the JazzWeek radio charts.



James Cammack -

In a feature article on bassist James Cammack, Bass Player Magazine reviewer Richard Johnston nicknamed James, who was at the time a Chicago resident, Chicago fire, for his hard-driving, creative approach to playing both acoustic and electric bass. At rehearsals of even the most complicated jazz pieces, Cammack just puts a finger on his instrument to find the key, asks for the general feel, and takes off. An extremely sensitive player, Cammack is an excellent sideman and his own solos demonstrate both virtuosity and musicality.

Its no wonder. For the past 28 years, James Cammack has performed continuously with legendary pianist Ahmad Jamal. Cammack has visited more than 30 countries backing Jamal and has also toured with singer Nancy Wilson, tubist Howard Johnson, and singer Vanessa Rubin. He has performed in some of the worlds most famous jazz clubs such as the Village Vanguard in New York City and Yoshis in San Francisco; and major jazz festivals, including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Italys Umbria Jazz Festival, and the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland.

Cammack has several recordings with Ahmad Jamal under his belt, including Rossiter Road (Atlantic), which reached the number-five position on the jazz chart billboard and the last release is Its Magic (Dreyfus). He has also recorded with pianist Chris Neville, Russian actress Natalia Nazorova, and tubist Howard Johnson, to name a few.

A piano and trumpet student in his early years, Cammack is largely self-taught. He became interested in playing the bass through an uncle who was also a professional musician. Later, by the recommendation of a high school teacher, Cammack was accepted into the West Point jazz band following an audition. During his stint in the military, Cammack had ample opportunity to play weddings, shows, and jazz gigs in the New York area and learned his trade. A great music associate, pianist and mentor, the late Frank Richmond, mentioned Cammacks name to Ahmad Jamal, who snapped him up right after West Point.
