Dorothy Donegan / Phil Woods

"Awe-struck" seems to be the word that immediately cornes to mind when critics endeavour to describe audience reaction to the pyrotechnics of Dorothy Donegan, acclaimed in one New York Times review as "the most brilliant jazz pianist playing today". With a high sense of theatrics, fearless technique, and an aggressive style that blends elements of gospel, boogie-woogie and the classics, Donegan literally takes her listeners by storm. Festival-goers will be reassured to hear that the "Grande Dame of the piano", who also has a reputation for eating musicians up with her whirlwind tempos, will be accompanied by the incomparable alto saxophonist and clarinetist Phil Woods, a free jazz veteran and consistent perpetuator of the classical jazz tradition who's a powerhouse in his own right. Interestingly enough, the Saxophone Journal recently wrote that "you have to be completely awestruck upon your first exposure to the playing of Phil Woods'. This concert is going to be ... well, awesome!
