Uniting Generations of Jazz Musicians
WDNA’s Jazz Encounters continue on the third Friday of June with
Ira Sullivan’s name is usually preceded by the word “multi-instrumentalist” because he is equally skilled on trumpet, flute, alto, soprano or tenor saxophone, or flugelhorn. He seems incapable of producing an unmusical phrase. That his work crosses over from be-bop to post-bop, from traditional swing to Brazilian only adds to the allure of his playing. He continues to make fresh jazz sounds, respectful of tradition, yet never hidebound to convention.
Jazz Encounters celebrate America’s classical music, create awareness in the importance of music education, provide personal musical encounters between diverse individuals, and expose the audience to the rich talent in the next generation of musicians.
Young musicians are invited to play along some of the best musicians around, in an informal setting and with the common purpose of establishing a relationship around music and its history.
It’s also a lot of fun!
Be good at what you do and be ready to play!
