Jazz Brunch This Sunday
Looking for something to take your parents to on that awkward, hungover Sunday morning before they leave? Look no further. The Jazz Brunch will be held from 9am-noon in the Terrace Room on the 2nd floor of the ELC.
Performers will include Phil Haynes and Steve Rudolph, local professional jazz musicians who worked the New York City circuit back in the day. Student performers will include Alex Horowitz '16 (and CV writer), Greg Chaimson '17, and Nicole Bakeman '16.
Percussionist and composer Phil Haynes began performing in 1983 in New York and is featured on more than 50 LP and CD releases by numerous American and European record labels. The Paul Smoker Trio’s QB with Anthony Braxton, was named the #1 recording of 1985 by esteemed critic Kevin Whitehead. The international media have compared his drumming to masters Jack DeJohnette, Roy Haynes and Elvin Jones, and his compositions to Duke Ellington, Charles Ives, Charles Mingus and the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
Steve Rudolph has been working as a jazz pianist and composer for over 40 years. Jazz Improv magazine described him as, “ a savvy, swinging, glimmering heavyweight… ...simply outstanding.” He won the Jazziz Magazine Piano Competition at the Seven Springs Jazz Festival in 2000 and was also awarded two Jazz Composition Fellowships from the PA Council on the Arts. He's lead eleven acclaimed CDs, in addition to serving as a producer, arranger and performer on many recordings including CDs with Johnny Coles, Bill Goodwin, Ali Ryerson, Matt Wilson and Vinny Valentino.
