Jazz Goes to College: The Music of Dave Brubeck
February 3 @ 7:30 pm
We have a very special 50th anniversary concert in Brookes Chapel on Monday, February 3rd, at 7:30pm.
Shorter University is hosting a mini-tour of a jazz program called ‘Jazz Goes to College’, featuring the entire Dave Brubeck ‘Time Out’ album (including Take Five and Blue Rondo a la Turk) plus other hits of the cool jazz genre. This historic album, released in 1959, was the first jazz album to sell over a million copies, and was largely responsible for earning a new respect for the jazz genre and for reaching a new and much wider audience—including colleges and universities. The program features a quartet (piano, saxophone, bass, drums) of the best jazz players in the region.
Admission is free.
