Royal Roost Revival Bebop Series

Jul 6, 2018 - Aug 31, 2018

This is the first volume of an original Nocturne series dedicated to honoring the prodigious art form of bebop. Curated by Colorado based saxophonist/arranger/composer Wil Swindler, the series name is inspired by the iconic Royal Roost jazz club on New York's storied 52nd Street in the late 1940's where bebop was organically brought to life by musicians such as Dexter Gordon, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Tadd Dameron, Fats Navarro, Miles Davis and Max Roach.

Wil Swindler will be joined on the bandstand by a number of special guests including: Jeff Jenkins, Seth Lewis, Dru Heller, Jim White, Matt Smiley, Mark Emmons, Ryan Hayden & Eric Gunnison
