The monthly series of Jazz at the Athenaeum STREAMING LIVE! continues with four concerts this spring, each featuring longtime favorite artists from the Athenaeum Jazz series. The series continues on April 12 with another special duo performance featuring pianist Eric Reed and bassist John Clayton. Through more than a quarter-century as a first-call artist on the jazz scene, Reed has articulated this inclusive conception as a leader of numerous ensembles, solo performer, composer, producer, educator, and sideman with numerous artists, including extended stints with Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Buster Williams, and Wynton Marsalis. A master interpreter of the music of Thelonious Monk as well as the jazz standards, Eric is also an accomplished composer of originals and maintains a strong connection to his roots in gospel music.
Tickets for each event are $15 for Athenaeum members, $20 for the general public. Performances are streamed live at 7:00 p.m. and are also available to ticket holders for viewing for 48 hours after each event.
