The Hewitt Pantaleoni Memorial Concert Series at the State University College at Oneonta will continue Tuesday with a concert by the area jazz trio The Old Masters, featuring Tim Iverson on piano and vocals, Dan Martin on trombone and drums, and Tom Ives playing acoustic bass.
The program at 7:30 p.m. in the college’s Sanford Auditorium, known on-campus as IRC No. 3. It is free and open to all, with neither tickets nor reservations required.
The Old Masters Ensemble, which was formed more than a year ago, concentrates on jazz compositions and standards from the American Song Book. The three members of the group have had longstanding relationships as music teachers in Otsego County and as professional musicians performing with a variety of ensembles throughout state.
Their program will include jazz compositions by Sonny Rollins, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Charlie, Parker, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Frank Rosolino, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Horace Silver, along with jazz treatments of standards by Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and Hoagy Carmichael.
The Pantaleoni Series, now in its 16th year, is presented as a gift to the community by the Catskill Conservatory, in association with SUNY Oneonta, and with the assistance of a coalition of donors. It honors the spirit of Dr. Hewitt Pantaleoni, who taught music at the college for more than 25 years before his death, in 1988.
