Germantown Performing Arts Center (GPAC) has invited New Memphis and us to attend Jazz in the Box with Joe Alterman on Friday, September 11 at 7 p.m., preceded at 6 p.m. by a private reception with the internationally renowned jazz pianist and composer. Complimentary drinks and light snacks will be served. You can buy a ticket for both the reception and concert at a subsidized rate of $10 here.  
 
About the musician: A pianist and composer, Joe Alterman has performed at venues around the world including the Blue Note Jazz Club in Milan, Blues Alley in Washington, DC, and Preservation Hall in New Orleans. He has led groups at venues in New York City including the Blue Note Jazz Club, the Iridium, the Kitano, 21 Club, Le Cirque, and Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, among others. He also recently performed at the "Marian McPartland Piano Jazz All-Star Celebration" at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, as well as at Jack Kleinsinger Presents "Highlights in Jazz", as a part of the "Next Generation All-Stars," where he performed alongside tenor saxophone great Houston Person. Speaking about Alterman, legendary pianist Ramsey Lewis stated, "When listening to Joe Alterman perform, it is obvious that he has studied the history of jazz piano. However, his own style of playing is appealing, challenging and quite satisfying."
