Performing: Danny Mixon Quartet featuring Antoinette Montague
Socrates and The Jazz Foundation have presented this beloved live music series since 2016, featuring world-class musicians on each second Thursday throughout the summer. This year’s edition focuses on the work of three profoundly important pianists.
Born in Harlem and based in Brooklyn, pianist Danny Mixon has long been one of NYC’s jazz treasures. His expressive technique and mastery of the blues have been on keen display from his early days with Patti LaBelle and Betty Carter, through engagements with Charles Mingus and Yusef Lateef, and in years-long runs as a leader at uptown institutions like Showman’s and the Lenox Lounge. This concert features his frequent collaborator, the phenomenal vocalist Antoinette Montague of Jazz Woman to the Rescue!
Jazz and Stargazing: Join students and astronomy faculty from the Natural Sciences Department at LaGuardia Community College to view stars and other celestial bodies through their telescope on each night of Jazz at Socrates.
