Southport Records Presents-Marshall Vente
Mar 05, 2011 06:30 PM - 09:00 PM
Southport Records Presents
pianist / composer / arranger
Marshall Vente will be playing two roles at Katerina’s for this evening of “Southport Records Presents”: performing solo at the piano, and accompanying vocalist Joanie Pallatto, reprising their critically acclaimed recording, “Two” – Joanie interprets songs from the world song book of great pop and classic standards with Vente on the 9’ Baldwin Grand.
Vente, in everyday life, plays equal roles as Pianist, Bandleader, Composer, Arranger, Radio Host and Contractor. A diverse taste in music aids his survival in the music business. A life in jazz has taken him from touring Europe as a teenager, ‘68; a National Endowment for Arts jazz apprentice with Gil Evans and David Matthews, ’82 – ‘87; NEA & IAC Composer grants; collaborations and CDs with Eldee Young, Billy Harper, Neville York; and as impresario of his annual Jazz Tropicale Cruise aboard the tall ship Windy in mid-July since 1995. His love of Brazilian music brought him to the airwaves as radio host of Jazz Tropicale heard every Sunday on 90.9fm WDCB since 1993 – “It’s a jazz show with a few palm trees!” Vente is currently leading and playing gigs nearly every day!
1920 W. Irving Park Rd.
