24th annual Pitt jazz seminars and concert set Nov. 2-5

Grover Washington Jr., Clark Terry, Johnny Griffin and Pitt's own Nathan Davis will be among the internationally known jazz musicians appearing at this year's Pitt jazz seminars and concert set for Nov. 2 – 5.

Also slated to take part in the seminars and concert for the first time are trumpeter Wallace Roney, drummer Thelonious Monk Jr. and pianist Geri Allen.

A Pitt graduate, Allen has been making a big splash on the New York jazz scene. While she has participated in the seminars and concert in the past as a student, this will be her first appearance as a professional.

Allen will be one of two women taking part in the seminars. Helen Keane, a longtime record producer and artist manager, will speak on her experiences as one of the first female jazz producers and agents in America.

Swedish journalist Hans Fridlund also will present a seminar on the business of jazz and the state of jazz in Europe.

All seminars are free and open to the public. A finalized list of seminar dates, times and locations will be published in the Oct. 27 issue of the University Times.

The week will culminate with a concert featuring the seminar participants on Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. in the Carnegie Music Hall. Tickets are available at the William Pitt Union box office or by calling Choice Seat at 333-SEAT. Tickets are $16 for adults and $8 for seniors and students with a validated ID.
