LIVE FROM DIZZY'S CLUB COCA-COLA
With Konrad Paszkudzki, piano; Hassan Shakur, double bass; and Dag Markhus, drums
“He has a pearly touch, a sense of history, a sense of drama, a love of the blues, and an elegance which is borne of high minded dedication.” – Wynton Marsalis
With a nonchalant grace and a musical conception based on eloquence and sophistication, the Konrad Paszkudzki Trio captivates ardent lovers of the jazz idiom and the Tin Pan Alley tradition. The attitude with which they perform is one of infectious swing and confident passion, as is evident on their recently released debut record. The sound is classic; and influences that can be felt and heard in their music are Frank Sinatra, Nelson Riddle, and the classic trios of Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner and Ahmad Jamal. Featuring Hassan Shakur on bass and Dag Markhus on drums, this performance will be a swingin’ affair.
Live webcast and artist interview with WBGO host Gary Walker will begin at 7:15pm EST on jalc.org/live. WBGO is proud to partner once again with Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola on Monday Nights with WBGO. The series features talented new artists as well as groups from some of the area's great college jazz programs.
