Joanne Brackeen and Greg Osby Duo
Oct 18, 2013 08:00 AM
Pianist Joanne Brackeen was the very first Jazz Room artist, over 35 years ago in April 1978. Her adventurous spirit and landmark career serve as a model for William Paterson’s programming and its students. She was the first and only female member of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, and performed extensively with saxophonists Joe Henderson and Stan Getz in the seventies. Since that time, she continues to have a stellar solo career, leading her own trios, composing over 300 pieces, and maintaining her original solo voice. In this concert, she collaborated with groundbreaking saxophonist Greg Osby, who is a veteran of bands led by Jack DeJohnette, Andrew Hill, Herbie Hancock, Steve Coleman and many others. His innovative approach and truly unique saxophone voice make this duo partnership a memorable concert event.
