All-star jazz ensemble Sound Prints, featuring Grammy-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano (above, right) and two-time Grammy nominated trumpeter Dave Douglas (above, left) will perform at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at Lafayette College’s Williams Center for the Arts, 317 Hamilton St.
A preconcert talk is scheduled for 7 p.m. in room 108 of the Williams Center for the Arts.
The concert is in memoriam of jazz pianist Mulgrew Miller, who served residencies at Lafayette College, where he received an honorary doctorate of humane letters in 2006 and was part of its Jazz Masters performance series.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling the box office at (610) 330-5009 weekdays between noon to 2 p.m. and 4 to 5 p.m., plus one hour before the performance.
The two instrumentalists conceived the Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas Quintet after their experience as co-leaders of the renowned SFJAZZ Collection in 2008. Sound Prints, their new-age jazz ensemble, includes up-and-coming pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda Oh, and drummer Joey Baron. The band will perform new repertoire as well as brand new Wayne Shorter collections in direct collaboration with living legend Shorter himself.
Sound Prints is presented as the 27th annual Easton Jazz Festival, in partnership with the Easton Boys & Girls Club. The concert is partially funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
WDIY 88.1 FM, Lehigh Valley Community Public Radio, is the College’s media partner for the Jazz Masters series.
