Tenor Madness: A Panel Discussion
August 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
IN PERSON AT STAGE DOOR THEATER OR VIA LIVESTREAM
One of the most iconic instruments in jazz, the saxophone’s voice-like tone pushed it to a leading position. As a featured addition to this month’s fan-favorite JAZZ ROOM, our quartet of Tenor Saxophonists join us to discuss the impact of the Jazz greats that made the tenor saxophone include Coleman Hawkins, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins, and Chris Potter. We’ll also have the opportunity to get to know a bit about each of these featured musicians.
Thank you to the program supporters, who each bring jazz alive in Charlotte: Infusion Fund, Knight Foundation, Doris Duke Foundation, South Arts, North Carolina Arts Council, Arts and Science Council, and O’s Place Jazz.
