Jazz Stories: Broadway on Jazz

Jun 5 2018 - 7:30pm

Tuesday, June 5, 7:30 pm
This Recurring Event is at Pegasus Books Solano

This Tuesday, June 5th: "Broadway on Jazz!" Why did jazz players adore these songs in the 1940's? Why do we still? We'll visit Broadway with Cayce Carnahan (trumpet), Richard Leiter (keys, vocals, stories) and Special Guest Stars (who I'm so looking forward to playing with) Dan Casares (tenor sax) and Ben Lauffer (drums). They're electrifying. If you love Broadway, or Jazz, or Books, or Snacks...be there. Early! It goes SRO fast. Downbeat? 7:30 sharp.

Jazz Stories: Live Jazz. Wonderful Stories.

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.

The first Tuesday of every month at Pegasus Books Solano.
