Concert + Conversation ft. Laurie Anderson + Christian McBride
On Thursday January 31st, RALPHPUCCIhosts its 3rd Annual Jazz Set, “Conversations with Christian,” and intimate conversation and concert with musical pioneer and maverick artist LAURIE ANDERSON and our host, six-time GRAMMY award winning bassist CHRISTIAN McBRIDE.
Last year, together with JAZZ HOUSE KiDS, we brought you ESPERANZA SPALDING and the year before that JOHN PIZZARELLI. This year’s event gives you a behind the scenes look at the genius of the unconventional pairing that captivated audiences at the Newport Jazz Festival this summer, in an intimate and exclusive setting. The music of Anderson and McBride defies convention in the name of innovation, admirable traits echoed in the storied history of RALPHPUCCI .
Join us at the New York gallery on Thursday January 31st for the RALPHPUCCI 3rd Annual Jazz Set.
Seating is limited so get your tickets today!
