Jesse Lynch Jazz 101, a virtuosic, multimedia tour, will be presented at the Conn Center on the Campus of Lee University on Monday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m.
Review for Jazz 101:
Jazz 101 was created by New York jazz artist Jesse Lynch. Pianist, composer, arranger and educator, Lynch has applied his wide-ranging skills to a new multimedia concert production chronicling the history of jazz. Repertoire spans New Orleans classics through Lynch’s own compositions.
Lynch is accompanied by fellow New York jazz aces Joe Michaels (bass) and Matt Smallcomb (drums). Each member has a formidable bio typical of the new wave of jazz instrumentalists - classical training with academic and professional connections to traditional jazz, funk, pop and world music. Lynch has toured nationally with Daniel Rodriguez and “The American Tenors.” The Trio’s first album, “Intuition,” was released in 2009.
Tickets may be purchased at the door for $25.
Bradley Concerts will also present Franc D’Ambrosio, the “World’s Longest-Running Phantom” from Broadway’s “Phantom of the Opera,” on April 7. For more information, call 473-1114 or 715-5662.
