Four For The City

30 Days of Jazz ConcertsMuch like Philly's own saxophone colossus, Archie Shepp's classic album, "Four For Trane;" a musical celebration honoring John Coltrare, PJP is presenting four, special concerts for the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy. These concerts are produced in collaboration with the Free Library of Philadelphia and Parks & Recreation, during Jazz Appreciation Month 2017 and occur in various communities around the city.

 

We've selected four ensembles who are quite different from each and demonstrate the broad and diverse possibilities of contemporary Jazz music. So, come out and be drenched in Soul, Funk, Fusion, Blues, Swing, Bop and the Beyond.

Philly Jazz Quotes

On my first record with him, I used no notes, just sound... I never played as powerfully as I did with Sunny Murray... he plays pulse, not beats.
