Our Supreme Sonacy Satellite Concert Series continues with a double header at Blue Note Jazz Club on June 8th as part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival. Kicking off June 8th’s double bill are trumpeter Igmar Thomas and pianist Marc Cary, two musicians whose body of work and original voices have been instrumental in shaping today’s flourishing live music forum.

6/08: 'Supreme Sonacy' - Igmar Thomas feat. Marc Cary + Slingbaum's Ravel Re-Imagined

“It started out as an interlude,” Igmar Thomas explains about “Trane Thang,” the opening cut from this summer’s upcoming Blue Note/Revive joint compilation album, Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1. “It was something we did with this band we used to have, and everybody started liking it. And the more we did it, I heard different ways to incorporate it, and I even have other songs that I incorporate it with.” Among the many songs that Thomas has  incorporated with “Trane Thang” is the classic Wayne Shorter cut, “Pinocchio,” which was artfully executed during the recording of Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1.

Following Igmar Thomas’s and Marc Cary’s performance is Slingbaum’s re-imagining of a French composer Maurice Ravel‘s “Jeux d’eau” — translated as “Water Games.” While the composer-producer’s rendition of “Water Games” still maintains its French impressionistic qualities, it easily alternates between elements of jazz, R&B, and hip-hop. In order to tackle the gravity of Ravel’s thick harmonies, Slingbaum has enlisted two maestros on the keyboard — piano prodigy Eldar as well as key-bass wizard BigYuki — a String Quartet and a host of special guests.
