JERRY HAHN TRIO CONCERT and CLINIC
(Published: September 09, 2010)
On Friday, September 24 North Central College will present jazz guitar icon Jerry Hahn in concert, with bassist Bob Bowman and drummer Jack Mouse. The concert will begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Wentz Concert Hall, 171 E. Chicago Ave., Naperville. The trio will also present a clinic in the hall at 3:30 pm.
Jerry Hahn has long been recognized as one of jazz's most influential modern jazz guitarists. Born in Nebraska and raised in Kansas, he became a major name in the 1960s and 1970s for his significant contribution to the then-emerging jazz fusion movement. Named one of the "trailblazers of rock-jazz integration" by jazz journalist Joachim Berendt, Hahn has performed, toured and recorded with Gary Burton, Roy Haynes, Steve Swallow, Jack DeJohnette, John Handy, Bennie Wallace and Ginger Baker. He has performed across the U.S., Europe, Canada and Japan, and recorded several albums for Columbia Records, including the critically acclaimed "Live in Monterey." His playing is featured on the movie soundtrack of White Men Can't Jump.
Hahn holds a Doctor of Music degree from Berean Christian College in Long Beach, CA. He established the Jazz Guitar curriculum at both Wichita State University and Portland State University, and has also taught at the Colorado Institute of Art. A longstanding columnist for Guitar Player magazine, he authored the Complete Jerry Hahn Method for Jazz Guitar for Mel Bay Publications.
An innovative and dedicated musician, Hahn is a favorite of a younger generation of guitarists, including Bill Frisell, Larry Coryell, John Abercrombie and Pat Metheny, all of whom have acknowledged his influence.
