Uptown Jazz Society Presents Marc Cary November 8 2012 in NYC

From a media release:

THE RIVERSIDE THEATRE PRESENTS
UPTOWN JAZZ SOCIETY!
MARC CARY AND FRIENDS: A TRIBUTE TO ART TAYLOR

HARLEM - NEW YORK CITY -
The Riverside Theatre, in conjunction with The Uptown Jazz Society, will host the brilliant and multi Grammy nominee, jazz pianist Marc Cary and friends, for an evening jazz concert paying tribute to Art Taylor, American drummer and founder of The Wailers.  The concert premiers on Thursday, November 8 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Assembly Hall at The Riverside Church, 91 Claremont Ave. (bet. 120th & 122nd Sts., Morningside Heights.)

The event marks the first offering from the Uptown Jazz Society! and will feature jazz pianist Marc Cary, who was hailed by Down Beat as one of the most, “multi-dimensional keyboard players on the scene today.”  Cary was also among the pioneers of Washington, D.C.’s infamous "GO-GO" rhythms that defined that musical scene and are continuously being referenced in hip-hop and jazz.

Marc Cary, one of the most "multi-dimensional keyboard players on the scene today," honors Art Taylor, American jazz drummer, founder of The Wailers, and collaborator of Miles Davis and John Coltrane, with an evening of jazz. Uptown Jazz Society seeks to honor a true American musical art form through presentations of local and national artists. In addition to founding The Wailers, Art Taylor toured and performed with many jazz legends, including Donald Byrd, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk

Tickets to the event start at $20 and can be purchased in-person at the Riverside Box Office, by phone at 212-870-6784 or online.
