Price | Diehl |Sunkett - Live At Katherine Drexel Library

Price Diehl Sunkett

As part of Jazz Appreciation Month, during April of 2017, PJP collaborated with Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy to present four special concerts in various public spaces around the city. These concerts were presented at facilities under the auspices of the Free Library of Philadelphia and Parks & Recreation.

 

We selected four ensembles who are quite different from each other and demonstrate the broad and diverse possibilities of contemporary Jazz music. This particular concert was captured in audio and we share it with you here now, as a FREE mixtape download.

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.
