COMING ATTRACTIONS IN AUGUST
August 22nd– 7:30PM
Genius of DUKE PEARSON:Thanks Uncle Duke
Enjoy an evening of classic jazz and vocals paying homage to the great Duke Pearson, who produced some of jazz’s greatest albums and had a major impact on hard bop compositions and arrangements for big band and large ensembles. The evening’s featured pianist is jazz veteran, Bobby West and five of LA’s best musicians.
Introducing guest vocalists Mechelle LaChaux & Pat Sligh
Duke Pearson played a big part in shaping the Blue Note label’s hard bop direction in the 1960s as a producer. He will probably be best remembered for writing several attractive, catchy pieces, the most memorable being the moody “Cristo Redentor” for Donald Byrd, “Sweet Honey Bee” for himself, and Lee Morgan, “Fancy Free” and “Jeannine,” which has become a much-covered jazz standard, among many others up until early1970.
