The 50th anniversary of his death provides an opportunity to pay tribute to this extraordinary musician. The WP faculty group for this concert includes veteran musicians with a wealth of combined experience: saxophonist and Coltrane scholar David Demsey, trombonist Tim Newman, pianist James Weidman, bassist Steve LaSpina, and longtime special guest drummer Winard Harper.

    STRAIGHT, NO CHASER: THELONIOUS MONK

    07/18/17 03:30 PM - 07/18/17 06:00 PM

    STRAIGHT, NO CHASER: THELONIOUS MONK
    (1988) Directed by Charlotte Zwerin with music composed by Dick Hyman

    Along with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, pianist Thelonious Monk is credited as the pioneering musician of bebop and is the second most recorded jazz composer in the world. This documentary tries to unravel Monk, who was known for having a thorny personality and an aggressive playing technique to match. Interviews with Monk’s son and fellow musicians shed some light and performance footage from a European tour captures his idiosyncratic style.

    Pianist Rossano Sportiello returns to the Summer Jazz Room, this time with a longtime collaborator, tenor saxophonist Harry Allen. Sportiello’s deft and swinging playing follows in the line of virtuoso masters of the instrument. He plays locally and tours extensively in Europe, and has produced numerous recordings. Harry Allen’s playing has been described by critics as “mind blowing” and “both modern and in the grand tradition.” He has wide experience performing worldwide and has released over thirty recordings in his name. This concert promises to be a swinging event where sparks will fly!
