Off Minor Jazz: Way Out West 

When: Tue., March 19, 7-8:30 p.m. 2019
Phone: 412-435-1110
Price: Free
Join us for a concert featuring the powerhouse jazz talents of Eric DeFade, Paul Thompson and Thomas Wendt playing the music from Sonny Rollins’ classic album, Way Out West. Sonny Rollins’ 1957 album Way Out West introduced the technique he called “strolling”, in which he would solo over only bass and drums, without a pianist (the pianist is on a permanent “stroll”). This intimate, pared-down ensemble format would become a Rollins signature, and a new go-to ensemble format for jazz groups to follow.
