Monday, February 19, 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Join us this Monday, Fenruary 19 from 6pm to 9pm ET for the 2018 return of Deep Focus.
Some musicians seem to emerge fully formed. It’s as if they just show up doing what they do and reliably keep doing it as long as there is breath. Others seem to be on an eternal search for new ways of expressing and identifying themselves; Geri Allen was one of these. Maybe that is part of why the death of this brilliant, soulful, inventive pianist last year at age 60 was so heartbreaking for the music world. She hadn’t finished! There was so much left to say.
Composer/bandleader/reed man Eric Person and host Mitch Goldman will explore the supergroup Geri Allen co-led with drummer Paul Motian and bassist Charlie Haden. Oh, this is the good stuff!
