With special guest Dave Liebman
LIVE AIRING ON AUGUST 20, 2020 via METROPOLITAN ZOOM
Jazz vocalist John Minnock is thrilled to present his second virtual show on Thursday, August 20th at 7:00 PM. Presented by MetropolitanZoom, this special evening will feature jazz legend and NEA Jazz Master Dave Liebman. John will celebrate the release of his new album Herring Cove (Dot Time). For this special occasion, Minnock will debut a new song by iconic composer David Shire entitled “Simplicity”; a meditation fit for these turbulent times.
The show can be enjoyed in your living room for $18. Tickets are available here. This virtual concert is in partnership with Jazz at Pride, and all proceeds will go toward the Ali Forney Center.
Minnock’s latest recording Herring Cove was released on June 5th on the GRAMMY nominated Dot Time Records. Met with critical acclaim, including a rave review from Broadwayworld’s Stephen Mosher, Herring Cove is a heartfelt exploration of the contemporary gay experience. For this monumental recording, Minnock brought together two indisputable musical masters: NEA Jazz Master saxophonist Dave Liebman, who stepped into the role of executive producer, and decorated composer and songwriter David Shire, who contributed an original new song. Filling out the rest of the set are six original compositions, co-written with Minnock’s friend and lyricist Erick Holmberg, and four stirring cover songs.
John is also joined by Mathis Picard on piano, Carlos Mena on bass and Pablo Eluchans .The show will be performed at Carroll Studios in New York City, and will follow current COVID health and safety precautions.
Like Minnock, Picard also has a new release out. His dynamic EP World Unity was released in May on the New York-based label Outside in Music. Referred to as a fascinating name to follow by All About Jazz, Picard’s debut recording showcases his prowess as a pianist in a variety of styles from stride piano to dance music.
