Music of The Tenor Masters

Monday, January 6, 2014 - 6:00pm

Tenor saxophonists have been at the forefront of jazz for most of its history. Visionaries like Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, Coleman Hawkins, and the incomparable John Coltrane have immortalized the instrument. On our stage, three generations of tenor masters, Benny Golson, Bennie Maupin, and Joe Lovano -- pay tribute to this tradition with Coltrane's Peace On Earth, Joe Henderson's Recordame, and originals including Lovano's Big Ben. Wendell Pierce hosts.

JUNIOR BROWN (Country Rock)

After honing his guitar skills in relative anonymity throughout the '70s, Brown became an instructor at the Hank Thompson School of Country Music, an affiliate of Rogers State College in Oklahoma. There, while teaching under the auspices of steel guitar legend Leon McAuliffe, a onetime member of Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys, Brown met "the lovely Miss Tanya Rae," a student whom he would later marry in 1988 and who eventually joined his band as a rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist.

CARRIE RODRIGUEZ (Fiddler, Singer, Songwriter)

At each stage of Carrie Rodriguez’s career—as a fiddler, singer, and songwriter—the Austin, Texas, native has learned the importance of letting go. That was certainly true when it came to recording her fifth solo album, Give Me All You Got, her first of largely original tunes in several years.

Don White, Jackie Damsky and String River opens

There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has survived and thrived for twenty years, bringing his audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page. He is a storyteller-comedian-author-troubadour-folk singer-songwriter. He is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” Best to just sort him under “Don White.”
