Don Aliquo, Traditional Jazz Revisited
On Friday, March 8 at 8pm, Don Aliquo returns to the Jazz Cave for a very special concert, "Traditional Jazz Revisited." For this fresh take on traditional jazz, Don will be performing on clarinet and saxophone, joined by multi-instrumentalist Miguel Alvarado, Jamey Simmons (trumpet), Chris Brown (drums), and Roger Spencer (bass).
In describing this concert Don asks "What's the connection between Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet and modern jazz? Come find out as we re-work and re-imagine classic traditional jazz tunes."
Don Aliquo hails from Pittsburgh, where he grew up listening to and learning from the city's jazz legends. Following in the footsteps of his father, a well-respected jazz artist himself, Don spent his formative years performing with many of the regions greats. Fortunately for us, he eventually landed in Tennessee where he is a professor in MTSU's Jazz Studies program, and has a busy schedule teaching, performing, and recording. His 5th solo CD release, Sun and Shield, is a New York-based project featuring veteran jazz masters Rufus Reid (bass), Jim McNeely (piano), and the dynamic drummer Obed Calvaire.
At home in virtually all jazz styles, Don's technical brilliance is matched only by his taste and melodic sense. More at www.donaliquo.com.
