Jazz at the Hall
An afternoon for learning about jazz. An evening for grooving to it.Stan Strickland

The Stan Strickland Quartet

Old Town Hall Jazz workshop 3:00
October 15, 2005 Evening concert 7:30

For the first time ever, Jazz at the Hall presents an afternoon concert and workshop for all ages to learn more about America's greatest indigenous art form.

Vocalist, saxophonist, flutist, dancer and actor.  Teacher at Berklee College of Music, Tufts University and the Longy School of Music.  Leader of Stan Strickland and Ascension and the Stan Strickland Trio.  Member of the Bob Moses–Stan Strickland Duo and the Phil Argyris Quintet.  Performances with the Boston Pops, Take Six, Herbie Mann, Marlena Shaw, Pharaoh Sanders, Danilo Perez and Usef Lateef.  And a legacy of recording.  Stan Strickland has done it all.

Long a fixture of the Boston jazz scene, Stan is admired as much by his peers as by the public.  In 1991 the City of Boston awarded him the Martin Luther King Music Achievement Award and, in 1994, Stan received the Cambridge Favorite Musician Award. 

No other musician has displayed more versatility or garnered broader appeal.  Stan calls it Afro-Asian jazz and blues.  We say it comes in all shapes and sizes and it all sounds out of this world.


Family Jazz Workshop: $5 suggested donation
Evening concert: $25 ($20 for students & seniors)

Tickets are available at Memorial Hall Library and the Andover Bookstore.

Seating is limited to 170.  All previous concerts sold out.  Don't wait!
