Sean Baker: George Shearing Tribute

When: Wed., April 13, 7-10 p.m. 2016

Rather than do a standard tribute show, where the student tries to reproduce an artist’s popular repertoire, Mr. Baker, also an accomplished arranger, has decided to educate listeners to the versatility of the “Shearing Touch” by bringing this classic sound to, not only some standards with plenty of improv to satisfy the most discerning jazz listener, but many “contemporary” tunes from post “standard” decades. The Beatles, the Carpenters, Phil Collins, Roberta Flack, Gloria Gaynor, Katy Perry, the Violent Femmes, even Shaggy (to name a few) are not exempt from being treated to the legitimate Shearing school of interpretation. This will be inspiring, educational, and most importantly: fun-in the most chill way!

Price: $10
