The Greg Millar Quintet Re-Creating The Classic Album Bags Meets Wes

Friday, April 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

The Greg Millar Quintet will Re-Create the Classic Riverside Records album Bags Meets Wes that featured two of the greatest jazz artists in the history of music: Milt Jackson was affectionately known as “Bags”; and John L. Montgomery, known more popularly as “Wes”. These artists combined their talents in December of 1961, along with the great rhythm-section team of Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones, to create a swinging session of standards and originals.

The Millar Quintet will present the recorded material, along with extra compositions associated with Mr. Jackson and Mr. Montgomery to round out an evening guaranteed to please any jazz audience.
