Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. Show time is 7:30.

This Bobby Zankel concert, a birthday celebration for the saxophone maestro himself, promises to be an evening to remember since this acclaimed artist will be appearing with his big band Warriors of the Wonderful Sound. Of Zankel, Jazz Times magazine said He’s headed to status as a prime jazz innovator. He served his apprenticeship with no less an innovator than pianist Cecil Taylor, and since Zankel made Philadelphia his home in 1975, he’s worked with Hank Mobley, Odean Pope’s Saxophone Choir, and has studied with guitar master Dennis Sandole. Zankel’s ground-breaking compositions, which have included three ballets and one opera, have been recorded by Lester Bowie, Marilyn Crispell, and Ralph Peterson Jr., among many others. In 1995, he received the prestigious Pew Fellowship for his writing.

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.
