Upcoming Events

January 2018
John Beasley’s MONK’estra
Friday, January 19, 2018 / 8:00 pm
Loeb Playhouse

For the 2018 Purdue Jazz Fest, it is an honor to celebrate jazz legend Thelonius Monk's centennial birthday and his undying influence on the form by welcoming John Beasley's MONK'estra. This group brings jazz full circle, translating Monk's work into the large ensemble format with fresh, buoyant arrangements.

February 2018
Troker
Friday, February 2, 2018 / 8:00 pm
Purdue Memorial Union Ballrooms

If Salvador Dali had ever made a heist movie, Troker would have provided the soundtrack with a style that careens between the sublime and dangerous. Troker burst onto Guadalajara's jazz scene in 2004 and hasn't looked back. Befitting their name—derived from a word for pickup trucks and trailers—Troker does not perform jazz for elevators.

April 2018
Songs of Freedom
Thursday, April 5, 2018 / 7:30 pm
Loeb Playhouse

Songs of Freedom explores three iconic voices of the 1960s—Joni Mitchell, Abbey Lincoln and Nina Simone—and the complex ways in which they call out to each other. Developed for Jazz at Lincoln Center by GRAMMY-winning drummer Ulysses Owens Jr—the performance will include powerful vocal performances by Alicia Olatuja, Joanna Majoko, and Theo Bleckmann.
