Ossining, NY - On Saturday, October 7, Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) will continue its highly touted Jazz Masters series with the Gerry Malkin Collective, four renowned jazz artists who have been called a quintessential group that plays top-notch music with pedigrees that run deep in the jazz hierarchy. Led by Malkin on tenor sax, the quartet's post bebop sound interprets music of the classic era of mid-twentieth century jazz, from Miles Davis to John Coltrane. The group will play at WCTs Black Box performance space at 23 Water St. at 7:30pm.
Malkin has performed with internationally known artists ranging from Motown legends The Temptations and The Four Tops, to Tito Puente, Steve Johns, Adam Nussbaum and Dave Weckl. The other musicians, Chris Morrison on guitar; pianist Jeff Pittson; bassist Mike McGuirk, winner of the International Society of Jazz Bass Competition; and drummer Bobby Leonard have also performed with numerous jazz greats including Maynard Ferguson, Kenny Garrett and Ruth Brown.
