Mysterious Traveler Mixtape

cover

In early 2014, Leo Gadson of Producers Guild, Adam Feldman of the Free Library of Philadelphia and Homer Jackson of the Philadelphia Jazz Project met to discuss a new concert series. It was called the Mysterious Traveler Concert Series. From Sept 2014 to May of 2015, the series presented monthly concerts, showcasing young and not so young, Philadelphia Jazz artists. The name of the series emphasized the need for these highly talented artists and the general public to get acquainted, making these strangers no longer mysterious, but friends and fans. Probably most important, these concerts were be free to the general public. You didn't have to be a hipster or a Jazz expert to attend. You just had to show up and enjoy yourself.

 

If you attended one, or all of them, or were unable to attend any of these events, but need a refresher, this mixtape is a document of some of the magic that occurred on those special evenings. Five performances by five ensembles led by some remarkable musicians. All concerts were recorded at the Montgomery Auditorium, in the Central Library of the Free Library of Philadelphia. Enjoy and hope to see you at the next concert coming sometime this month.

 

Special thanks to Adam Feldman of the Free Library of Philadelphia. His tireless dedication to this project has truly been a humbling experience.
