The Webster Jazz Faculty opens the 2012-13 Webster Jazz Series with the program “Cool Struttin’; Soulful Sounds from Blue Note Records” on Monday, Sept. 10, at 7:00 p.m. in Winifred Moore Auditorium.
The concert will feature some of the more blues- and groove-oriented hard bop fare recorded on the flagship jazz label in the 1960′s. This type of repertoire proved to be some most popular in the label’s 73-year history.
Pieces to be performed include “The Sidewinder,” “Fat Head,” and “Calling Miss Khadija” by Lee Morgan, “Doodlin’” and “Sister Sadie” by Horace Silver, “Moanin’” and “Dat Dere” by Bobby Timmons, and “Cantaloupe Island” by Herbie Hancock.
The faculty ensemble includes: Debby Lennon on vocals, Keith Moyer on trumpet, Paul DeMarinis on tenor saxophone, Steve Schenkel on guitar, Kim Portnoy on piano, Willem von Hombracht on bass, and Kevin Gianino on drums.
