The Justin Varnes Quartet plays tribute to the music of Wayne Shorter.
As with the entire Legends of Jazz series, Mr. Varnes will guide guests–in engaging, narrative form– through the life of this jazz saxophonist and composer as well as the impact that his life influences had on his musical legacy. In this show, audiences will find out about the extraordinary life of this artist from Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and Weather Report, and how so much of his work has become part of the collection of American jazz standards. It’s like taking in a concert and taking a jazz history class at the same time.
Oh, and they’ll also play their behinds off!
Showtime: ONE SHOW ONLY- 7:00pm. Admission: $25.
