Lost Jazz Shrines Mondays at Minton’s

Lost Jazz Shrines Mondays at Minton's Saturday, May 10 at 7:30PM; Featuring Carl Allen – drums, Eddie Allen -trumpet, Rodney Jones – guitar, Helen Sung – piano, Yasushi Nakamura – bass, Antonio Hart – alto saxophone

Tribeca Performing Arts Center will celebrate the legacy of the legendary Minton's Playhouse, mythical birthplace of bebop, or the modern jazz sound, in 2014. Minton's was significant as after-hours haunt uptown in Harlem where musicians would often come after their gigs elsewhere in the city, to jam with the house rhythm section. In that spirit we will engage drummer Carl Allen as the leader of our "house rhythm section" and leader of an organized jam session, what they used to refer to as the "straw boss" of the jam session, the person who calls the tunes and the person who brings up musicians to jam. One performance only (and it won't be on a Monday)!
