Richard Galliano & Friends: MAY 1- 3


Sign in to view read count
Phenomenal accordionist Richard Galliano, who regularly plays to enthusiastic European audiences, will make a rare New York appearance with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Clarence Penn. Galliano is one of the most influential composers of modern works for accordion performing today. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 1, 2 & 3, 2003 at 8pm in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, Galliano will present a revitalized musical tradition of European folk with a jazz sensibility. He succeeds in expanding the emotional range of this folk music to reflect modern sentiments, opening it up to improvisation informed by American jazz. Tickets at $45 are available at the Alice Tully Hall box office, by calling CenterCharge at (212) 721-6500, or via www.jazzatlincolncenter.org.

All Jazz at the Penthouse concerts take place in the intimate, club-like setting of the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, where the audience enjoys candlelight, spectacular views of the city, and complimentary wine (for patrons age 21 and over).

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.
