The San Francisco Jazz Heritage Center presents Best of Bop City: Celebrating 50 Years of Impulse Records, this Saturday, October 15th.
Hosted by KCSM's Sonny Buxton, this evening is part of our the San Francisco Jazz Heritage Center's series Best of Bop City, featuring great music from the high flying days of IMPULSE! Records. Called the "House that 'Trane Built," Impulse was at the forefront of the jazz avant garde and graphic design. Join our quintet of fine musicians as they interpret the great sounds of that immortal time.
Pianist Larry Vuckovich brings tenor saxophonist Noel Jewkes, bassist Jeff Chambers, and upcoming drummer Lorca Hart (son of famed jazz drummer Billy Hart). Jamie Davis will perform the great vocals of Johnny Hartman as heard on Hartman's famous recording collaboration with 'Trane.
This special concert is in conjunction with the San Francisco Jazz Heritage Center's new exhibition that celebrates the 50th anniversary of Impulse with iconic album covers and images of musical history giants captured by the legendary photographer Chuck Stewart. These images tell the label's story as vividly as its music does.
Select music, provided by Amoeba Music, will also be on sale.
