Brian McCarthy Nonet: “The Better Angels of Our Nature”

Jazz Room Series<br>Brian McCarthy Nonet: “The Better Angels of Our Nature”


WP undergrad and graduate alumnus Brian McCarthy has created a nine-piece work that has been called by Down Beat magazine “a jazz album that makes a cavernous impression for its arresting beauty and conceptual brilliance” for its work in chronicling the years of reconciliation after the Civil War which gave birth to, among many other things, the jazz art form. This project started as an arts grant in McCarthy’s home state of Vermont, and features a number of great soloists who are alumni of William Paterson’s Jazz Program. Its title is taken directly from the final line of an Abraham Lincoln speech.

Admission: General Public $15 • WP faculty, staff, alumni, and senior citizens $12 • Non-William Paterson students $8
WP students are admitted free. • All tickets are an additional $3 on show day.

Each Jazz Room concert is preceded by a “Sittin’ In” meet-the-artist session one hour prior to performance. Free to all ticket holders. Audience members have a chance to meet and interact with that day’s artist in a question-answer format.
