Dedicated to the continuation and preservation of jazz, America’s indigenous art form, Jazz Alive was created to bring this great music to audiences and students who have little to no opportunity to hear and learn from the genre’s great practitioners. Jazz Alive is committed to presenting concerts, school assemblies, master classes, and school residencies in underserved communities that may be off jazz touring routes, lack jazz presenters, or have little funding for jazz events.
Jazz Alive presents their 2022 Summer Concert Series at the historic Waterfowl Building located at 40 South Harrison Street in Easton, Maryland. Continuing the club-like setting of the 2021 series, concertgoers can reserve seats at tables set throughout the hall that offer great views of the stage while enjoying a beverage and lite snacks from a candlelit table.
Jazz Alive concludes its 2022 Summer Concert Series with the powerhouse trio of guitarist Shawn Purcell, organist Pat Bianchi, and drummer Jason Tiemann. Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Shawn Purcell is a jazz guitarist, educator, arranger, and composer in the Washington DC region whose credits include performances and tours with Terell Stafford, Nicholas Payton, Tim Warfield, Sean Jones, Brian Charette, Regina Carter, The Chicago Jazz Ensemble, The Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, Jim Pugh, Chip McNeill, Eddie Daniels, Chris Potter, Steve Allee, and many others. Grammy nominated organist, winner of Downbeat Magazine’s 2016 rising star poll and Hot House magazine’s 2019 poll, Pat Bianchi has established himself as one of the premier organists on the international scene today. Jason Tiemann is a New York City based jazz drummer who is quickly forging his musical voice on the New York scene by fusing his depth of historical foundation with crisp technique and propulsive, intuitive swing. With a new recording coming out later this year, you won’t want to miss this great trio!
The Waterfowl Building is at 40 South Harrison Street in Easton, Maryland. Tickets are $48 and available at jazz-alive.org or at the door the day of the event. Students attend free with a Student ID. A cash bar will be available. Proceeds from ticket and concession sales support Jazz Alive’s mission of providing educational support in developing future artists and preserving this great art form through school and community programs.
