TOM LAWTON is a highly respected, gifted, and creative jazz pianist who resides in Montgomery County and teaches and works actively as a freelance musician in the Philadelphia area, New York City, and internationally. He’s had the distinct honor of being the jazz pianist the Philadelphia Orchestra often chooses for its social functions. For about ten years, Tom was the house pianist at the Philadelphia Four Seasons, often with the late great bassist, Al Stauffer. Tom is currently a member of Bobby Zankel’s Warriors of the Wonderful Sound, which has been playing monthly shows at Tritone for ten years. Tonight’s music, commissioned by the American Composers Forum for a Community Partners Grant, is the culmination of Tom’s partnership with the Philadelphia Senior Center at Broad and Lombard Streets. The suite, a prologue and seven movements, is inspired by Tom’s conversations with the seniors who use the center–conversations about their lives in general and their relationships to music, in particular. Joining Tom tonight are two great young musicians–drummer Alex Maio and bassist Josh Machiz. Both are members of the unique jazz/rock/hip-hop band Drake, and Maio also plays with the bands Erronious Krunk and Mi Head Ur Head.
CLASSICAL REVOLUTION: Live chamber music for the people. The Philadelphia chapter of an international movement, the Classical Revolution is a collective of musicians who believe in the relevance of classical music and are bringing it outside of traditional venues. In their own words: “We hope to integrate this music into Philadelphia’s nightlife, giving people who do not otherwise hear it live the opportunity to engage intimately with it and its interpreters. Currently in its inaugural stages, Classical Revolution Philly seeks to create an avenue for music-making which involves passionate professional, emerging, and nonprofessional musicians alike. Our performers include members of the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Pennsylvania Ballet, local professionals, conservatory and non-conservatory students alike. We love chamber music, and we believe that everyone can enjoy the music that we love.”
