Polyrhythms Third Sunday Jazz

POLYRHYTHMS Third Sunday Jazz Workshop & Matinee Series brings the transcendent Pippi and Daniel Music to Becherer Hall, at Rivermont Collegiate.

Pippi Ardennia, a song stylist-songwriter composing jazz, blues, gospel, and soul, originally from Chicago, and after some seasoning in the St. Paul, MN area, makes her home in Galesburg, IL. She is a nationally-recognized jazz-blues artist who has performed in upscale venues throughout the country. Her roots are jazz-based, but she applies her voice to many different musical styles. Reviewers have compared her to Dinah Washington and Ella Fitzgerald and have said: “Pippi’s shows are like a religious experience.” Pippi’s intent with music is to unite families, communities, cultures, and countries. Pippi’s voice will touch you…It’s all About Love.

Pianist composer Daniel Leahy began playing music at the early age of 4 when his family discovered he could play the exact song note for note that he heard the organist play at church that morning. While performing at numerous jazz festivals, Daniel has played with the great Louie Belson, Clark (Mumbles) Terry, Hampton Hawes, and James Morrison and studied with Benny Green and Tamir Hendelman. Classic jazz artists have been his biggest stylistic influences; Oscar Peterson, Hank Jones, Nat Cole, and Joe Sample. With these influences, he has molded his own versatile yet unique style. He combines his clarity of notes with his distinct love for harmonies.

Together they are Pippi and Daniel Music and joined by Edgar Crockett – trumpet & flugelhorn, John Miller – guitar, Manuel Lopez III – drums, Zoe Rose – vocals, and Carol Maloney – vocals.

Polyrhythms Third Sunday Jazz Series is made possible with major support of the SCRA, the RDA, the Singh Family Foundation, Visionary Arts Photography & Media Center, as well as Bowman Accounting, Peeples Heating & Air Conditioning, Cribbs Landscaping, Davis Entertainment Network, Radio station KALA, and DJ Mixxin Mel
