Origins of Jazz: The Jazz Piano with Mark Nanni & the Intention

Event Type: All Ages
Date: 10/27/2019
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
Description:
 With its 88 black-and-white keys, the piano is a unique and varied instrument. It can play melody, harmony and bass, making it capable of functioning as both an accompanying as well as a lead instrument. And of course, it is a magnificent solo instrument. As jazz piano music developed, the rhythm possibilities improved enormously, making this instrument sound like a full orchestra. At the library, Mark and his two bandmates drummer Josh Dekaney and bassist Don Martin will perform standards from the Great American Songbook which best represent the conversational piano trio style as pioneered by the trios led by piano-master Bill Evans.

Location: Carman Community Room
