Lost Jazz Shrines, May 10


Lost Jazz Shrines

Mondays @ Minton’s

Saturday, May 10 Concert  at 7:30PM; $25 smarttix-buy_026


Before the concert, we will present a FREE film screening of THELONIOUS MONK, AMERICAN COMPOSER at 6PM (length 60 min.)


Tribeca Performing Arts Center will celebrate the legacy of the legendary Minton’s Playhouse, mythical birthplace of bebop, or the modern jazz sound, in 2014. Minton’s was significant as after-hours haunt uptown in Harlem where musicians would often come after their gigs elsewhere in the city, to jam with the house rhythm section. In that spirit we will engage drummer Carl Allen as the leader of our “house rhythm section” and leader of an organized jam session, what they used to refer to as the “straw boss” of the jam session, the person who calls the tunes and the person who brings up musicians to jam. One performance only (and it won’t be on a Monday)!
