JAZZforum: Herbie Nichols Wednesday, September 16, 2015 7:00 p.m. Jazz researcher Bertrand Uberall discusses the life and music of pianist Herbie Nichols, who labored in complete obscurity in his lifetime but whose highly original music was finally recognized long after his death (in 1963) by artists such as Roswell Rudd, Misha Mengelberg, Buell Neidlinger, Frank Kimbrough, Ben Allison and Ron Horton. The presentation will include elements of Herbie's biography, as well as an update on Bertrand's ongoing project to create a complete inventory of all of Nichols' known compositions. In addition, saxophonist Brad Linde and other musicians will discuss the challenges of arranging Herbie's music, and what makes his compositions so unique. This presentation is in conjunction with upcoming concerts of Nichols' music by Brad Linde at Bohemian Caverns and the U.S. Army Blues Big Band (with arrangements by Mike Kramer and Dan Roberts) at the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Take 5! series. Recital Hall (Performing Arts Bldg. 46-West).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
