David Haney and Bernard Purdie Bring New York Jazz Stories to Joe's Pub on April 6
(Published: March 07, 2018)

On April 6, pianist and composer David Haney and legendary drummer Bernard Purdie will bring another performance of New York Stories to Joe's Pub.

New York Jazz Stories combines swinging, electrifying music, featuring Bernard Purdie and company along with some highly entertaining stories retold by David Haney. These are real stories told directly to Haney, transcribed and brought to life with a sound track by "Pretty" Purdie, bassist Adam Lane, Steve Swell on trombone; violinist Jason Kao Hwang, Melanie Dyer on viola, Tomas Ulrich on cello and Hilliard Greene on bass.

The stories that will included in the April 6 performance are "Randy Weston - Early Days in Brooklyn;" "Lester Chambers - Working with Miles Davis;" Marvin Bugalu Smith - "Working with Town Sound Recordings;" and Eddie Gale - "Hats and Mustaches."

This show also features Haney's Birth of a City, a new work composed for string quartet and improvised trio, as well as a performance in words and music by Hilliard Greene which brings to light the significance and beauty of the remarkable songs associated with the Underground Railroad.

BERNARD PURDIE the world's most recorded drummer, was born June 11, 1939 in Elkton, Maryland as the eleventh of fifteen children. Purdie moved to New York in 1960 and soon after recorded his first hit, with King Curtis.

Since then, Purdie has worked with a vast array of artists, such as Paul Butterfield, Larry Coryell, Miles Davis, Hall & Oates, Al Kooper, Herbie Mann, Todd Rundgren and Cat Stevens, as well as regularly producing his own solo albums.
