Tampa Jazz Club Presents ART BLAKEY CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION to Open Monday Night Series Season



October 14, at USF Concert Hall

The opening concert of the Monday Night Jazz Series at the USF Concert Hall will be a Centennial Celebration of one of the jazz greats, Art Blakey, featuring special guest drummer Jason Tiemann and the USF Faculty Jazz Ensemble. Blakey led the incomparable Jazz Messengers, an incubator of talented young musicians, for more than three decades, from the mid-1950’s until his passing in 1990, and is renowned as a founder of the ‘Hard Bop’ sound. The concert, on October 14, at 7:30 p.m., is sponsored by the USF School of Music and the Tampa Jazz Club.

The New York-based drummer Jason Tiemann is in constant demand, having worked with Benny Golson, Slide Hampton, and Eric Alexander among many others, and is a highly regarded educator and clinician, teaching at the famed Jamey Aebersold Workshops for the past two decades. He’ll be joined by the great players from USF’s faculty: saxophonist Jack Wilkins, trumpeter James Suggs, guitarist LaRue Nickelson, pianist Chris Rottmayer, and bassist Mark Neuenschwander, in this celebration of Art Blakey’s music and legacy.

Blakey, a force of nature, once described jazz as “the eighth wonder of the world.” And in turn one of his Messengers alumni, Wynton Marsalis, said “On the eighth day, God created Art Blakey.” In fact, the USF School of Music presented Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in the USF Theater in the late 1980’s, in his final years.

Monday Night Jazz is one of the jewels in the crown of the Bay Area arts scene.  We hope to see you as the new season opens on October 14, celebrating Hard Bop and Art Blakey at the USF Concert Hall!
