Greg Duncan Quintet Performs Woody Shaw’s STEPPING STONES – LIVE at the VILLAGE VANGUARD at Jazz Record Art Collective. Showcased Art by Yvonne Doll.
Chris Anderson, club manager of the Green Mill Jazz Club, continues alliance with Joe Lanasa, director of the Fulton Street Collective, producing Jazz Record Art Collective, a monthly series providing local musicians and visual artists alike an opportunity to collaborate and pay homage to iconic Jazz artists.
This month, the Greg Duncan Quintet will be performing Woody Shaw’s STEPPING STONES – LIVE at the VILLAGE VANGUARD in its entirety on Wednesday, November 19th at 8:30pm. The evening will also feature a solo exhibit by artist Yvonne Doll, who will do a live painting of the band’s performance.
Woody Shaw is considered by some to be the last of the great
jazz trumpet innovators. The recording "Stepping Stones -- Live at the Village Vanguard" captures Shaw and his band at their peak in August 1978.
Fresh off the success of their first album with Columbia records
"Rosewood", Shaw's group initially tried to record
a second album in the studio, only to have it fall flat. Instead,
they opted for a live recording at the Vanguard and the result was magic.
Shaw and his contemporaries (Victor Lewis, Carter Jefferson, Clint Houston,
and Onaje Allan Gumbs) delivered one of the more memorable performances in
Vanguard history. Since it was only his second recording leading his own band on a major label, this album proved to be a huge stepping stone for Woody Shaw as a jazz musician and bandleader.
Greg Duncan Quintet is:
Greg Duncan – Trumpet, Flugel
Rob Haight – Tenor Sax
Dan Trudel - piano
Larry Kohut - bass
Greg Artry – drums
"The Jazz Record Art Collective," occurs the third Wednesday every month at the Fulton Street Collective, located at 2000 West Fulton Street. Each month, Anderson and Lanasa introduce a new lineup of jazz musicians, painters, and photographers, responding to a different record and musician.
Admission is a suggested donation of $10.
