An All Star January Jazz Concert with the Elan Mehler Septet


198 in stock


Lexington High alumni Elan Mehler returns to town with an all-star septet of master musicians! Since 2007, pianist Elan Mehler has released eleven albums as a leader, featuring musicians such as Bill Frisell, Dave Douglas, Becca Stevens, Francisco Mela and Tony Scherr. He’s released records on Brownswood Recordings out of London, Challenge Records out of Amsterdam and Newvelle Records in NYC. In 2016, Elan founded Newvelle Records with partner Jean-Christophe Morisseau. He has since produced over 50 records featuring musicians from the pinnacle of the jazz world.

Since 1982, trumpeter Ron Horton has been an integral part of New York’s flourishing jazz scene and he stands out both as an exemplary instrumentalist and as a highly progressive composer and arranger.





Saxophonist Loren Stillman’s impressive portfolio includes collaborations with The Charlie Haden Liberation Music Orchestra, Paul Motian Trio 2000+2, Carla Bley, and John Abercrombie among others.




Saxophonist Andy Zimmerman’s music blurs the lines between classical music and jazz, composition and improvisation. His debut album, Half Light (Newvelle Records) featuring Dave Douglas, Kevin Hays, and Matt Penman, has been met by a great deal of critical acclaim.



Guitarist Ben Monder has performed with Marc Johnson, Lee Konitz, Paul Motain, George Garzone and contributed guitar parts on David Bowie’s last album, “Blackstar”.




Bassist Tony Scherr has worked with Bill Frisell, Willie Nelson, Rickie Lee Jones, Ani DiFranco, Rufus Wainwright, Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, Jesse Harris, Richard Julian, Sasha Dobson, Shawn Colvin, The Abrams Brothers, and Teddy Thompson to name a few.



Francisco Mela is a favorite among jazz’s elite instrumentalists, including McCoy Tyner, Joe Lovano, Kenny Barron, Quincy Jones, John Scofield, Cooper- Moore, William Parker, Ingrid Laubrock, Gary Bartz, Bobby Watson, and Chucho Valdés.
