On April 6, pianist and composer David Haney and legendary drummer Bernard Purdie will bring another performance of New York Jazz Stories to Joe’s Pub.

New York Jazz Stories combines swinging, electrifying music, featuring Bernard Purdie and company along with some highly entertaining stories retold by David Haney. These are real stories told directly to Haney, transcribed and brought to life with a sound track by “Pretty” Purdie, bassist Adam Lane, Steve Swell on trombone; violinist Jason Kao Hwang, Melanie Dyer on viola, Tomas Ulrich on cello and Hilliard Greene on bass.

The stories that will be included in the April 6 performance are “Randy Weston: Early Days in Brooklyn"; “Lester Chambers: Working with Miles Davis"; Marvin Bugalu Smith: “Working with Town Sound Recordings"; and Eddie Gale: “Hats and Mustaches."

This show also features Haney’s “Birth of a City," a new work for composed for string quartet and improvised trio, as well as a performance in words and music by Hilliard Greene which brings to light the significance and beauty of the remarkable songs associated with the Underground Railroad.

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.
