The monthly jazz-happenings at The Space Upstairs are back!
November features the collaborating artists of The Pillow Project joined by special guest jazz legend (and frequent Parisian guest host of Second Saturdays) Moe Seager!
Moe Seager will lead a big band and jazz with The Pillow Project, joined by Tony Campbell and Roby Edwards on sax, Dave Pellow on bass, Ronnie Burrage on Drums, and Craig Davis on keys.
The SECOND SATURDAYS jazz-happenings are an original creation for igniting a new movement of live, physical-jazz in Pittsburgh... sharing dance, light and music together in a truly unique jazz-lounge/performance-gallery atmosphere.
Every second Saturday of the month features an evening open to the public of ongoing improvisational performances, live multimedia experimentations and honest, spontaneous, jazzed expressions of the moment.
Paris legend, East Liberty native and collaborator with The Pillow Project, Moe Seager has been working with Pearlann Porter and company both abroad and in Pittsburgh on collaborating his live poetry and the company's physical jazz and creating an artistic connection between Paris and Pittsburgh. Moe is a writer and musician known for his provocative poetry and crowd pleasing jazz performances, and has published 3 books of poetry, several short stories and some 20 stage plays produced in the U.S. and France. A Golden Quill award winner for journalism (1988) and a human rights award recipient (1989), Moe's career led him to Paris in 1991 when the French Ministry of Culture published his epic length poem, "Rio Escondido". Moe is also a commentator for RT TV, Paris.
