JAZZ | Spontaneous Duos


The Institute for Creative Music is all about promoting the glory of jazz, so to celebrate International Jazz Day, the IfCM is hosting the third annual Spontaneous Duos. Musicians include some of Rochester's best players: Doug Stone, saxophone; Mike Kaupa, trumpet; Alexa Tarantino, saxophone (pictured); Chris Teal, drums; Kyle Vock, bass; and many more. In the spirit of improvisation, one player will solo for five minutes, then another musician will join in. After another five minutes, musician No. 1 will drop out and musician No. 3 will join musician No. 2. New players will enter every five minutes, and nobody knows where this musical journey will lead.

Spontaneous Duos takes place Saturday, April 30, at The Eastman School of Music's Messinger Hall One (northeast corner of Gibbs Street and East Avenue). 4 p.m. Free. 274-1100;
