Jazz Stories: "The Trumpet! Louis, Diz, Miles and Chet."

Tuesday, July 2, 7:30 pm
This Recurring Event is at Pegasus Books Solano

Greetings fun-loving, jazz sophisticate!

Tuesday night! Jazz Stories: "The Trumpet! Louis, Diz, Miles and Chet." One of my most beloved players, Cayce Carnahan, will be channeling your trumpet faves. Plus!: the amazing Dr. Greg Johnson (Really. A Doctor of Jazz. Don't miss this.) on sax, the equally thrilling (I'm not exaggerating) David Rokeach on drums, and me (Rich Leiter) on keys/vocals/stories.

Remember: Tuesday - JULY 2ND!. 7:30. But come early because it always goes SRO. And, though it seems impossible in this day and age...still free! (Oh, yeah. Snacks!)

This one is close to my heart. Definitely be there, and bring friends.

They'll thank you big time.


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.
