Jazz Performance and Lecture

On Monday, September 26, 2011 at 7pm, the Tim K. Trio, comprised of Mike Reale on drums, Pete Nobile on acoustic bass and Tim Komonchak will be performing in Kaplan Hall 201.

The program includes a variety of songs (Latin, swing, waltz, ballad) by a number of composers and performers including (but not limited to) Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Richard Rodgers, Horace Silver, Oliver Nelson, Duke Ellington and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

This performance/lecture will illustrate variations on the blues, harmonically different pieces, melodically familiar and not-so-familiar works, and it will offer different platforms for improvisation. The trio will also explain and demonstrate what is meant by the terms “improvisation,” “reading,” “faking,” “chord progressions,” “lead sheets,” “trading fours,” and other tools of the trade.
