Jazz Stories: "The Joy of Sax!"

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016 - 7:30 pm

This Recurring Event is at Pegasus Books on Solano

Pegasus Books presents the increasingly popular series Jazz Stories! This evening, we'll feature the sounds and songs of the tenor saxophone.

This month's Jazz Stories: "The Joy of Sax!"  We'll be talking about the tenor sax and tenor heroes like Sonny Rollins, Coltrane and Stan Getz. Featuring wonderful reed player,  Andy Dudnick, with Cayce Carnahan on trumpet, Teerth Gonzalez on drums and Richard Leiter on keys, vocals and stories.  Free admission, free cookies, all good reasons to get there early because it's always SRO. 

People love hearing jazz...and hearing about it. Musicians like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Buddy Rich were original, colorful characters artists who said and did astonishing things. Fortunately their colleagues cared enough to document these moments in stories and pictures and we now have a rich repository of photos and anecdotes about these artists, and about the American songwriters and composers who created the raw material of jazz. 

Jazz Stories is a performance of the songs of jazz from its most creative periods intensified with illuminating, funny and touching true stories of the time.

Come hear music and jazz stories you probably have never heard...but will never forget. Hosted by Richard Leiter.
