world class Jazz in Macc. Now booking
One of the greatest ever jazz tenor saxophonists Jerry
Bergonzi is to perform a special concert at the King's School.
Formerly a member of the Dave Brubeck Five, during a career spanning more than four decades, Jerry has performed in the world's top venues including:
Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, The Royal Festival Hall, Alexandra
Palace, The Lincoln Centre and the Hollywood Bowl as well as the renowned
Monterey and Nice jazz festivals.Now it's Macc's turn.
Jerry is the inaugural headliner in a new series of special concerts, promoted by former pupil and jazz composer Steve Plews and local impresario Steve Darlington.
Steve Plews said: "This is an amazing coup for the local music scene. Jerry is truly a world great. Indeed, when Michael Brecker was asked what it was like to be the world's greatest living saxophonist, he simply replied ?I don't know - ask Jerry Bergonzi.'
Steve added: 'Jerry's playing is characterised by relentless drive, inner fire, total command, awesome technique, elastic lyricism and rich resonance. He is a world-class musical visionary and will be one of the most influential and talented musicians ever to perform in Macclesfield."
