Performing: The T.K. Blue Quintet, honoring Dr. Randy Weston
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.
When Dr. Randy Weston passed on in September 2018, he left behind a unique legacy as not just a jazz giant, but one of the world’s great cultural ambassadors. Tonight we celebrate this legacy with longtime members of his touring group, helmed by its musical director, the renowned saxophonist and flautist T.K. Blue, and featuring Alex Blake (bass), Neil Clarke (percussion), Vince Ector (drums), and Sharp Radway (piano).
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.
