Saturday, November 14, 2020 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm$15
Van Gelder Studio, the legendary recording studio home to hundreds of jazz icons from John Coltrane to Herbie Hancock, has announced the launch of “Live from Van Gelder Studio,” a new virtual music series that will stream live from VanGelder.live.
The series will debut on Saturday, November 14th at 9 PM EST and will feature an all-star quartet who will pay tribute to jazz great Hank Mobley, whose most beloved recordings turn 60 this year. Performers include bassist Ron Carter, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, pianist Isaiah J. Thompson, and drummer Kenny Washington, along with surprise guest performers.
Carter is a music legend recognized as the most recorded jazz bassist according to Guinness World Records. He has been recording in the Van Gelder Studio for over 60 years and is the anchor to this first-ever live event from the studio.
“Live from Van Gelder Studio” is expected to continue through 2021 with a 10-show immersive and interactive program. The series will feature talent from original seminal recordings joined by multi-generational artists who will pay tribute to important records that were originally put to tape within the four walls of the studio. Tickets can be purchased directly on the site for $15. 2021 shows will be announced in the near future.
Performances will be live-streamed using a new technology built from the ground up that is true to the Rudy Van Gelder sound. It will allow audiences to fully experience the unique studio and its sound in their homes. Upcoming experiences will be crafted to make the audience and musicians feel like they are at an actual live performance.
