Info

Performances at 7 and 9 p.m. In jazz today, there is a groundswell of young musicians who are forging new paths into the future, while grounded in the traditions of the past. Contemporary, smooth, and eclectic -- three words that just begin to describe Albert Rivera, "a modern Jazz Messenger" with one of the most exciting and sought-after saxophone sounds in today's jazz scene. Albert Rivera's musical journey began at the prestigious Laguardia High School in New York City and continued during the summers at the Litchfield Jazz Camp. After taking his degree at New School University Jazz and Contemporary music conservatory, he began a career in music that sees him today, a seasoned performer, educator and producer. Gerald Veasley's musical odyssey has taken him to the top of the contemporary music world as a bassist, bandleader, composer, producer, educator, and curator. His performance as a six-string bassist has been top shelf, as his extensive body of work attests. Veasley has recorded or performed with many of the world's top artists in Jazz, R&B and Gospel: Kirk Whalum, Will Downing, Chuck Loeb, Maysa, Nnenna Freelon, Special EFX, Pieces of a Dream, McCoy Tyner, The Jaco Pastorius Big Band, Gerald Levert, Teddy Pendergrass, Philip Bailey, the Dixie Hummingbirds, John Blake, Odean Pope and Pat Martino. Most recently, Veasley has been selected to lead Jazz Philadelphia, a new initiative that seeks to unify Philadelphia's vibrant jazz community, celebrate its rich musical history and position it as an international destination for jazz.
