JAZZ | Spontaneous Duos

by

comment

Rochester musicians will celebrate International Jazz Day in a most appropriate way: making it up as they go along. Here's how it works: Musician one plays solo for five minutes and then is joined by improvising musician two. After five minutes musician one leaves and musician three enters, picking up the music with musician two. Players will enter and leave at five-minute intervals until everyone has played. Among the adventurers are pianist Dariusz Terefenko, saxophonist Bill Tiberio, percussionist John Beck, vibraphonist Kristen Shiner McGuire, bassist Jeff Campbell, trumpeter Mike Kaupa and many more.

Spontaneous Duos takes place Wednesday, April 30, 7:30 p.m. at The Eastman School of Music's Messenger 1, NE corner of Gibbs St. and East Ave. The event is free. 274-1100.
