BERKS BOP NIGHT
featuring JEFF LORBER, GERALD ALBRIGHT, RICK BRAUN, BRIAN BROMBERG, EVERETTE HARP, ERIC MARIENTHAL, CHUCK LOEB
Tickets: $40 (General Admission)
Bop is a style of jazz characterized by fast tempos, often dissonant triadic and chromatic chords, eccentric rhythms, intricate melodic lines punctuated by pop-tune phrases. instrumental virtuosity, and improvisation based on the combination of harmonic structure and sometimes references to the melody.
It is a jazz style that emphasizes the inventiveness of the musicians.
Which is precisely why Berks Bop Night should be an incandescent listening experience, especially with Gerald Albright on sax, Rick Braun on trumpet, Brian Bromberg on bass, Marcus Finnie on drums, Everette Harp on sax, Eric Marienthal on sax, Chuck Loeb on guitar and Jeff Lorber on keyboards.
