Benny Benack III - Wednesday, 1 July 2020

9PM ZURICH, 8PM LONDON, 3PM NEW YORK

JOIN THIS SESSION ON MIXCLOUD


ABOUR BENNY BENACK III

By age 29, trumpeter and singer Benny Benack III has proven to be that rarest of talents: not only a fiery trumpet player with a stirring command of the post bop trumpet vernacular in the vein of Kenny Dorham and Freddie Hubbard, but also a singer with a sly, mature, naturally expressive delivery in the post-Sinatra mold, performing standards and his own astute songs with a thrilling sense of showmanship. His superb intonation and bracing virtuosity enable him to handle astounding feats of originally composed vocalise (complex solos with written lyrics). On top of it all, he’s a highly capable pianist as well.


Benny performs internationally as an Emcee/Host for Postmodern Jukebox, the vintage music collective famed for canny old-school covers of modern pop. In early 2020 he released A Lot of Livin’ to Do, the follow-up to his well-received 2017 debut One of a Kind. This sophomore effort, richly varied in mood and brimming with bop inflection, features bassist extraordinaire and Jazz ambassador Christian McBride (whose Grammy-award winning Big Band frequently calls upon Benny in the trumpet section) and drummer/producer Ulysses Owens, Jr., as well as the radiant Takeshi Ohbayashi on piano and Rhodes.


Alongside his global touring as a straight-ahead/contemporary bandleader, Benny has appeared as a trumpet soloist in more commercial circles alongside Josh Groban, Ben Folds, fashion icon Isaac Mizrahi, Ann Hampton Callaway and more. He’s been featured at Birdland, Jazz @ Lincoln Center, Mezzrow, Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle and other leading New York venues, and has also been a special guest with the Pittsburgh Symphony Pops Orchestra, the Columbus Jazz Orchestra and the Minsk Philharmonic Orchestra. He made his television debut in NBC’s short-lived, SNL-inspired variety show “Maya & Marty” playing in the in-studio band led by acclaimed bassist & Broadway arranger Charlie Rosen.


Third in a generational line of Pittsburgh jazz notables, Benny follows in the footsteps of his trumpeter/bandleader grandfather, Benny Benack, Sr. (1921-86), and his father Benny Benack, Jr., a saxophonist/clarinetist who gave the young Benny his first professional experience. Benny, Sr. hailed from a Pittsburgh lineage that also produced Roy Eldridge, Earl Hines, Art Blakey, Billy Strayhorn and so many more. He recorded the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 1960 theme song “Beat ’Em Bucs” and toured with Tommy Dorsey and Raymond Scott, among others. Benny III returns to Pittsburgh often to perform, saluting his family forebears and the jazz heritage as a whole, nonetheless staking his bold and highly individual artistic claim.

Carol is a regular in and around Ibiza and is frequently Guest DJ on the world-famous Radio Station “Ibiza Global Radio”.

She wants to extend her music style with her new pseudonym Carol Kenzo. Carol Fernandez will be more Pop, Tropical House, commercial Music and Carol Kenzo will be strictly House like Deep House, Tech House, Jackin’ House, Funky and Classic House.

A new EP is planned with the name “Carol Kenzo - My House Is A Soul Thing” with original tracks composed and produced by herself and her father Toney D, delivering on-point, pumping house sounds that look set to turn the clubs on their heads and rousing house beats, guaranteed to turn any event into a joyous riot.

Thanks to her large fan base, Carol’s reputation precedes her. Party organisers book her not just because she plays good music, but also because in her own special way she seems to create an atmosphere as no one else can, spinnin', playing Keyboards and Percussions at the same time.

DJ Cruz - Saturday, 2 May 2020

7PM ZURICH - 6PM LONDON - 1PM NEW YORK, ASMALLWORLD INSTAGRAM LIVE


DJ, Producer and Entrepreneur are three words describing the Swiss-born DJ Cruz. Recognised for his open-format approach as a DJ, he has travelled around the world, performing at some of the world’s most renowned clubs and events. As a producer, he has gained support from many, with a number of the world's most popular DJs incorporating his tracks in their sets and being played on several radio stations.

It all started for DJ Cruz in his teens while he was competing in skateboard contests. Being inspired by the DJ at the event, he decided to pick up the craft himself. After perfecting his craft behind closed doors, he soon landed his first gig at one of Switzerland’s most popular clubs. 

At the age of 19, he left his job at a private bank to fully focus on his DJ career. With his open format approach as a DJ, he soon landed gigs all around the world which led to residencies at clubs in New York, London, Paris, Milan and Dubai. He has DJ’d for some of the world’s biggest brands and supported some of the biggest artists out there.

Alongside his DJ journey, Cruz also developed a taste for producing tracks on the side. Having focussed more on the production of music for the past two years, Cruz has made his entry in the global Hip- Hop industry as an increasingly sought after producer. 

With tracks as Fendi F, No Problems and most recently Get A Bag. He gained the support from New York’s legendary HOT97, it would not be wrong to assume there is much more to expect from DJ Cruz in 2020.

Besides his successful DJ career, Cruz decided to take being a DJ to the next level as an entrepreneur, developing the UNASHAMED brand. Under the UNASHAMED umbrella, DJ Cruz has brought to life his own radio show, a record label and legendary party label. The UNASHAMED brand has already had some great successes, with the radio show being broadcasted monthly on radio stations in Switzerland, Belgium and the USA. 

With his party label, he has hosted luxurious parties that usually sell out immediately. With 2020 still in its early stages, DJ Cruz has laid the foundations to take his career as a DJ and producer to the next level. Not to forget his endeavours as an entrepreneur with UNASHAMED which will be rolled out globally. One thing is for certain - 2020 will be the year we will be hearing a lot more from Swiss DJ Cruz.

CARLTON J. SMITH - WEDNESDAY, 22 April 2020

7PM ZURICH - 6PM LONDON - 1PM NEW YORK, ASMALLWORLD INSTAGRAM LIVE


Carlton Jumel Smith is a singer, songwriter, producer, and actor whose nickname since the 1990s has been "Soul Brother Number New," thanks to his cinematic portrayal of James Brown in Barry Levinson's 1999 film Liberty Heights. With a smooth baritone that is alternately grainy and sweet with a distinctive falsetto, he has been bringing his revue-style shows to stages across the United States, Europe, and Asia since 2002, including several stints in Shanghai, Helsinki, Las Vegas, and London, England. 

He also played a lead role in the Broadway musical Largo written by David Henry Hwang, where he played opposite Cyndi Lauper, Fisher Stephens, and Garth Hudson. He also had a recurring role in the soap opera As the World Turns for a time.

Sextravaganza: Tribal SextraxSmith grew up during the '60s and '70s, and his expressive baritone and ethereal falsetto were deeply influenced by Brown, Al Green, Bobby Womack, and The Temptations. While his 21st-century recordings come right out of soul and funk's golden ages, he began his singing career performing and recording with house and techno producers. 

His first single, 1986's "Excite Me," a 110-bpm dancefloor groover, was co-written with Andre C. Lovell and produced and released by Kevin Calhoun and Yvonne Turner (Loleatta Holloway's manager). In 1994, under the alias Napoleon Soul-O, he was the featured vocalist on Frederick Jorio Presents Sextravaganza on Tribal America. Through the rest of the '90s, he was the frontman for the Thrill Cycle, who issued an EP and an album. Smith's first two solo albums appeared on Exile Records in 2008: The Skinnybone Tree and Diagram of a Relationship. His third album, 1634 Lexington Avenue, was recorded in Finland and released in 2019 on Timmion Records.

Tom Seals - Friday, 10 April 2020

7PM ZURICH - 6PM LONDON - 1PM NEW YORK, ASMALLWORLD INSTAGRAM LIVE


The mantle of UK Piano Man has been dominated by Elton John, Jools Holland and Jamie Cullum over the past five decades and no one else has come remotely close – until now that is!

Fresh from his sold-out gig at Ronnie Scott’s, and live appearances in Las Vegas & Japan, Tom Seals, “quite possibly the future of Jazz/Blues and Pop”, literally has the world at his fingertips. His virtuoso solo-ing, excellent improvisation skills, as well as a distinctive voice have left top industry officials hailing him as one of the UK’s finest Blues/Boogie-Woogie piano/vocalists.

Tom has worked with and supported established artists such as Jools Holland, Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Mo Pleasure, Dame Cleo Laine, Cerys Matthews, and DJ Trevor Nelson.

With recent performances playing ‘four hands’ with legendary pianist Mo Pleasure at the Steinway2 Festival and appearing with Jools Holland at his recent Boogie Woogie and Blues Spectacular, it is perhaps no surprise that Seals' coveted main stage show at Ronnie Scott's sold out 2 months prior to the show.
