AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
Seasons Greetings jazz lovers.
Through out the year, Savoy has brought you the best in live jazz each Monday Night. I would like to encourage you not to miss our last 3 Mondays before the New Year. They are sure to make your Holiday Season sparkle extra bright.
We start with the legendary jazz guitarist, Mr. Jimmy Ponder on December 3rd, followed by an amazing Pittsburgh favorite, Michele Bensen on December 10th. And for the last Savoy Monday Night Jazz before the new year, we've put together a very special concert for everyone who cares about this iconic music we call jazz, and its rich connection to the city of Pittsburgh.
On December 17th, the Savoy presents Pittsburgh's own contribution to the next generation of "soon to be" historic jazz artists, the quintet called "ELEVATIONS". These young musicians have been mentored by some of Pittsburgh's finest; legends like Roger Humphries and the world renowned bassist, Dwayne Dolphin. The excitement these young cats generate is absolutely amazing, you won't believe your ears. They range in age for about 20 to 23 years old and many have had early training at Pittsburgh Creative And Performing Arts school (CAPA). This formidable young group recently won awards at the Next Generation Jazz Festival in Monterey, California and went on to be featured at the Monterey Jazz Festival in September of 2012. They are the "real deal"!
This will be a hugh event at Savoy on December 17th; a great way to finish up a year of great jazz. Make arrangements to get there early; it will be packed!
Once again, Happy Holidays, See you at Savoy!
