Kenny Barron

Friday, June 7, 2013 - 6:00pm

Happy Birthday, Kenny Barron, born June 9, 1943

Understated but amazing, those words fit Kenny Barron’s piano and personal style. By age 20, he had left Philadelphia to work and record with Dizzy Gillespie, then Yusef Lateef, Stan Getz, the Monk-inspired quartet Sphere, and KB’s own groups including Canta Brasil. In 2010 the NEA named him a Jazz Master. We’ll celebrate his birthday with his current duo with bassist Dave Holland at the Kennedy Center, and solo Barron from last summer’s Caramoor Festival.

Inquiry welcomes back COURT CARNEY, Assistant Professor of History at Stephen F. Austin State University.

We also talk about jazz in the early days of film, silents and talkies. If you are interested in the history of jazz, do not miss this show.

Kevin Harris Project

When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonious Monk, Danilo Perez, and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that intersection?

Boston-based jazz pianist Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore such a crossroads.
