All Jazzed Up and Someplace to Go
Take a musical journey from the 20th century roots of Jazz to the diverse sounds of the present with Fort Worth Library’s annual Third Thursday Jazz Series. Featuring an outstanding list of nationally and locally known talent, the monthly lineup offers everything from swing jazz to the blues. All concerts are FREE and open to the public and run now through September.
June’s Third Thursday Jazz Series Features the Pamela York Quartet | Thursday, June 19 ~ 6:30PM
Pianist Pamela York and her quartet explore the jazz possibilities of timeless, traditional spiritual music at the June 19th series performance. The quartet will feature saxophonist Shelley Carrol.
Sheldon Nunn of JazzReview.com describes Pamela York as “…the ultimate pianist. Her performance set a precedent for what was to become one of the finest displays of pure jazz…Pamela has a subtle style about her, yet she is able to draw her audiences in with each melodic note. Her touch on the keys is light and effortless, yet she is able to convey her message with a voice and style that is uniquely hers. While playing tunes made famous by some of the legendary masters, Pamela York makes her own statement without being a pretender.”
