Jazz Duo Monroe and Miceli
Diane Monroe is more than simply a fine performer. She is a violinist whose versatility and expressive artistry consistently bring audiences to their feet. Her visibility as a jazz artist began with her long-standing membership as first violinist of the Uptown String Quartet (with Lesa Terry, Maxine Roach and Eileen Folson) and the Max Roach Double Quartet. With those ensembles, she performed with Cecil Bridgewater, Trumpeter; Odean Pope, Saxophonist and Tyrone Brown, bassist, and has recorded on the Soul Note, Philips/Polygram, and Mesa/Bluemoon labels.
Internally renowned vibraphonist Tony Miceli has been performing steadily on the jazz scene since 1980. In All About Jazz, Vic Schermer describes him as ... “a vibraphonist of astonishing virtuosity, musical resilience, and inventiveness. His vibes playing is nothing short of phenomenal.”
Tony Miceli is the consummate versatile musician who is involved in a number of musical projects and recordings. An artist who performs throughout the world, Tony has played in countless jazz festivals, percussion festivals, jazz clubs, colleges, and even prisons. He is a performer, educator and innovator, not just as a musician, but also as the creator of www.vibesworkshop.com, his vibraphone online school of music with over 3,000 members. Traveling around the world, he has recently performed in such countries as Spain, Ireland, South Korea, Australia, Canada, Belgium and Patagonia. Based in Philadelphia, he performs and leads vibraphone workshops throughout the USA including Colorado, North Dakota, Delaware, Idaho, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Tony plays with the highest caliber musicians. As a group leader, sideman, and recording artist, he has performed with numerous top musicians including David Liebman, Jimmy Bruno, Ken Peplowski, John Blake, Diane Monroe, John Swana, Joe Magnarelli, Steve Slagle, Larry McKenna, and many others. He is the proud originator of The Jōst Project, a band of jazz artists who reach new generations for jazz by playing the music they recognize -- classic rock. He is also proud to play with the Irish musicians who bring back the music of the Modern Jazz Quartet. Playing vibe improvisations with singer Joanna Pascal, they performed in a concert called “Mozart Reloaded” at Philadelphia’s prestigious Kimmel Center, Joanna Pascal’s rendition of a Mozart opera aria. With crossover violinist, Diane Monroe, he is now working on a project using jazz, folk, and classical influences.
