Join Josh for a Members Night
Have you heard the latest? Who are the jazz artists people will be talking about? Josh Jackson knows. His passion and understanding for this music grew from his New Orleans roots to the clubs and hot spots of today’s vibrant New York City jazz scene. Lay down fifteen bucks and have a night out hanging with Josh at 92Y Tribeca, November 16, where you’ll meet Lage Lund and Warren Wolf. First in an intimate reception just for WBGO Members, and then in a concert Josh will host and broadcast live on WBGO. This is cool fun.
Lage came from his home town of Skien, Norway and within weeks, he was playing his electric jazz guitar with the likes of Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Seamus Blake and others. He’s the first ever electric guitarist in the history of Juilliard. He’s been a fixture in the jazz clubs since he relocated to New York on a Fulbright. He frequently leads bands and at the same time is a busy sideman working with a variety of well established musicians.
Vibraphonist Warren Wolf is just 31, but he has chops. He’s a vibraphonist. And your ears’ll be ringing with the vibrations that he and his band Wolfpack create. He makes it apparent to jazz fans and insiders alike that he’s the next major voice on his instrument. Joined by his band, Wolf will offer a program that represents his blend of chops, lyric sensibility, encyclopedic knowledge of hardcore jazz vocabulary, groove and musicality.
As a WBGO Member, you’ll get a free gift, refreshments and your choice of the best seats in the house. WBGO Members can join Josh before the show to share a drink and talk with the artists, then sit back with other WBGO friends, new and familiar, and let these emerging artists move you. Singles are welcome. What better way to meet your jazz soul mate than hanging out with Josh and the crowd at 92YTribeca?
