Jazz Stories: Talking Trumpet! Louis, Diz, Miles, and Chet

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 - 7:30 pm

This Recurring Event is at Pegasus Books on Solano

Pegasus Books presents the increasingly popular series Jazz Stories! This month, we feature the trumpet.

This month Jazz Stories will be: "Talking Trumpet! Louis, Diz, Miles and Chet."  Featuring Cayce Carnahan channeling your trumpet faves, Blake Richardson on bass, Teerth Gonzalez on drums and Richard Leiter on keys, vocals, stories.  Starts at 7:30, but come early because it always goes SRO. And, though it seems impossible in this day and age...still free! 

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.
