David Watson's Rebirthing The Cool: Bebop N Beyond
Friday, May 24th, 2019
7:45 PM
The Old Church Concert Hall
1422 SW 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97201
Re-Birthing The Cool, will be performing some musics of Gerry Mulligan, Miles Davis & Gil Evans and Dave Pell. Some of what we are playing is the West Coast movement in the period which was around the late 1940s and early 1950s. This music of Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Shorty Rodgers, Shelly Mann and others helped in cooling down for a minute the Hot Jazz played all over the country in the early 1940s and late 30s. This was a great time to live in, the music was changing and players were getting their pens out and putting great ideas down on paper, then forming groups to perform their works. Also in our repertoire for the evening is the music of Thelonious Monk, Charlie Mingus, Curtis Fuller, and other bebop players, plus some present ideas of David Watson, Mary-Sue Tobin, Pete Petersen, Stan Bock, Ed Bennett, Alyssa Schwary- McDonald. Presented by The Old Church
