Lexington Community Education presents: Jazz Guitar Jubliee: An Evening featuring Bucky Pizzarelli, Howard Alden and Jon Wheatley
From "keeping time" in big bands and jazz combos, to the unaccompanied recordings of George Van Eps, Johnny Smith, and Joe Pass, the evolution of the guitar in the Jazz genre has been rapid and remarkable. This winter we are honored to welcome three of the world's finest players to converse both verbally and musically as we celebrate the history and tonality of the beloved “jazz box.”
Bucky Pizzarelli is in the direct lineage of innovators Charlie Christian and Djanjo Reinhart. Through the years he has honored that heritage and aided the evolution of the instrument through both masterful rhythmic playing and chord melody solos on the 7-string guitar.
Regarding Howard Alden, Owen Cordle of JazzTimes writes, "He may be the best of his generation."
Jon Weatley is one of Boston's busiest and best jazz guitarists with a career spanning thirty-three years, he's played with a number of internationally known players.
This performance and discussion will be held at First Parish Church in Lexington. Cost: $10.00

More About First Parish in Lexington Unitarian Universalist
The history of First Parish in Lexington extends back to the late 17th century, when residents of Lexington, then called Cambridge Farms, repeatedly sent petitions to the Massachusetts Legislature asking to establish their own parish. The state finally acquiesced to their petition in 1691 and five years later, the church was finally established - Calvinist in doctrine, congregational in polity. In 1829, the parish voted to become Unitarian.
Today, the church is a self-governing, liberal congregation that works with a professional staff, offering religious education, events and activities.
