More Info About Concert Here

 

During the summer of 2014, Leo Gadson of Producer's Guild, Adam Feldman of the The Free Library and PJP teamed up to develop a daring, new performance series: Mysterious Traveler Concert Series. The series has featured FREE monthly concerts running from September 2014 through April 2015. It has showcased a diverse array of Jazz performers who are shaping the future sounds of Philadelphia. This series has quietly grown into one of the most exciting musical events in the city. Many audience members have stated that they can’t believe that it’s free.PJP spoke with series co-producer, Leo Gadson about his interest and passion for the music.

 

PJP:  Why Jazz? You could be doing anything with your time… why the music?

Leo Gadson: Why not Jazz? I chose Jazz because... words can't really describe it. I love this music. Jazz to me is raw, real, soul-searching, artistic, soothing to the mind, it gives rest to the soul and it heals the heart of mankind.

 

PJP:  What has the Mysterious Traveler Series been about for you?

Leo Gadson: This Mysterious Traveler Concert Series is all about introducing the general public and particularly, older adult, Jazz fans to the idea that jazz is not DEAD. There are young people, talented, young Jazz musicians who have come up during the hip-hop generation who are keeping the music alive. And they’re doing it with some creativity and improvisation. They are bringing the generations together with a soulful sound that we all can understand.

 

PJP:  Why did you pick these particular musicians for this series?

Leo Gadson: I chose these artists because I found them to be serious musicians who bring a wide range of approaches to Jazz. I also found them to be great composers and arrangers, as well as musicians who bring Jazz with them into other genres of music. That is refreshing to me.

 

PJP:  So, Jazz has a future? Why?

Leo Gadson: Yes. Because of these dedicated young people, Jazz does have a future! It's  also people like myself and PJP that keep sharing our presentations with new/old audiences that help keep Jazz alive as well!

 

Don't miss the fireworks from this, the final concert of the series!!!!

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.
