The Checkout Live at Berklee: Jaleel Shaw

Event Date: 
Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 8:00pm

New York's WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM and NPRmusic proudly present year two of The Checkout Live at Berklee. Critically acclaimed, New York-based performers return to their Berklee roots and perform for the world from Boston's Cafe 939. Tonight's concert features Jaleel Shaw with Lawrence Fields, Boris Kozlov, and Johnathan Blake.

Alto and soprano saxophonist Jaleel Shaw is presently a member of the Roy Haynes Quartet and the Mingus Big Band and has performed with Christian McBride, Jason Moran, Stefon Harris, Roy Hargrove, Dave Holland, Jimmy Cobb, and more. He picked up the alto saxophone when he was nine and joined a youth jazz band directed by jazz educator Lovette Hines about a year later. In addition to performing with Hines’s band for nearly six years, Shaw also immersed himself in Philly’s local jazz scene, studying and performing with some of the talented musicians that city has historically produced.

In 2008, Shaw started his own record label, Changu Records, on which he released his second CD, Optimism. That same year, he won another ASCAP Young Composer Award for the composition “The Flipside,” which is heard on Optimism. He was also nominated for "Up and Coming" by the Jazz Journalists Association later that year. Shaw has recently been mentioned in Jazztimes Magazine’s 2011 Readers Poll for Alto Saxophonist of the Year, along with Phil Woods, Lee Konitz, Bunky Green, and Kenny Garrett.

Admission: $10, $5 with Berklee ID
