Jazz Stories: "All About The Bass!"
Tuesday, May 7, 7:30 pm
This Recurring Event is at Pegasus Books Solano
This First Tuesday (May 7th) it's Jazz Stories: "All About The Bass!" We'll dig deep with songs and stories of Mingus and more.
This show features Maestro Pat Klobas on acoustic bass, Cayce Carnahan (trumpet) David Rokeach (drums) and Rich Leiter on keyboards, vocals and stories.
As you know, Jazz Stories has been very SRO-ish from day one, so come early. Stake out a spot. Grab some cookies. (Still free. Can you believe it?)
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.
