Gerry Malkin Jazz Collective Perform ‘Post Bebop’ Sound at Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) Saturday, September 10
Ossining, NY – On Saturday, September 10 at 7:30 pm, Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) will continue its highly touted Music in the Box series with the Gerry Malkin Jazz Collective, renowned artists who have been called a “quintessential… group that plays top-notch music” with pedigrees that “run deep in the jazz hierarchy.” Led by Malkin on tenor sax, the distinctive post bebop sound of the Collective interprets music of the classic era of mid-twentieth century jazz from Miles Davis to John Coltrane. The group will play at WCT’s Black Box at 23 Water St.
Malkin has performed with internationally known artists ranging from Motown legends The Temptations and The Four Tops, to Tito Puente, Steve Johns, Adam Nussbaum and Dave Weckl. The other musicians in the band, including Dave Childs on piano; Chris Morrison on guitar; Mike McGuirk on bass; and drummer Bobby Leonard, have also performed with such jazz greats as Lew Soloff, John Abercrombie, Woody Herman and Dave Liebman.
Tickets, $25, can be purchased online at:
(Limited seating available; advance purchase is strongly recommended.) Refreshments will be available.
