“Why the hell are we here? Surely not to live in pain and fear â. October 9 would have been John Lennon’s 81st birthday, so in addition to the regular fare, plan to hear music and conversations from and about him.
And, yes, that will include Yoko, you enemies. Radio Free Athens shines.
Jazz patterns with Art Cromwell
This Saturday’s “Excursions” will feature an anniversary celebration of the music of Thelonious Sphere Monk, one of the founding figures of modern American music known as Bebop.
Monk’s work – some seventy compositions – has provided a framework, challenge and direction to jazz artists for more than seven decades.
Reasons for excursions:
-Various interpretations of Monk.
-The four tenors of Monk.
-Large ensemble works.
-Brief record survey.
