Jazz Appreciation Month Concert

The Schenectady Musical Union presents its annual free Jazz Appreciation Month Concert

In partnership with the Schenectady County Initiative Program, the concert will feature The Dylan Canterbury Quintet and Keith Pray’s Soul Jazz Revival. Each will demonstrate the art of the “jam session,” an informal gathering of musicians to play improvised or unrehearsed music. Jam sessions have always been at the heart of jazz, with musicians free to experiment with their music, learn from each other and expand the possibilities of jazz as an art form.

Tim Coakley will receive the 2013 JAZZ HERO AWARD for his musicianship in jazz, his dedication to the promotion of jazz as President of A Place for Jazz, the Schenectady Gazette and his weekly Saturday evening jazz show for WAMC 90.3FM. Bill McCann, representing the Jazz Journalist Association, will present the award.

The Dylan Canterbury Quintet: Dylan Canterbury (trumpet), Brian Patneaude (saxophone), Rob Lindquist (piano), Lou Smaldone (bass) and Nat Coyne (drums).

Keith Pray’s Soul Jazz Revival: Keith Pray (saxophone), Scott Bassinson (keyboards), Ed Torgue (bass), Bobby Halek (drums) and Jim Wilson (guitar).

Located in Robb Alley
