Thursday July 23rd at 8pm:
The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present Geof Bradfield and Ryan Cohan performing Stan Getz and Kenny Barron's "People Time", released in 1992. The evening will also feature live painting by visual artist, Alex Puryear!
"Stan Getz's final recording, a two-CD live set of duets with pianist Kenny Barron that was cut just three months before his death, finds the great tenor in surprisingly creative form despite an occasional shortness of breath. Getz's tone is as beautiful as ever and he does not spare himself on this often exquisite set. His version of Charlie Haden's "First Song" is a highlight but none of the 14 performances are less than great. A brilliant farewell recording by a masterful jazzman."
This month we're excited to showcase a special series created by saxophonist, composer and bandleader Geof Bradfield. Geof has chosen to recreate albums that stretch across genres and eras of jazz, which will be performed by different groups he has assembled on Wednesday evenings at The Fulton Street Collective.
At the end of August we are excited to celebrate our 6th anniversary of the Jazz Record Art Collective series
with performances taking place during this year's annual Chicago Jazz Festival.
