The Bull Run has been a Tavern for centuries and their philosophy is simple: use only the freshest ingredients from area small farms and providers; treat the staff and the talent like gold; support the local events and institutions that truly create community; and bring world-class entertainment to Central Massachusetts.
This April 6th, Brooklyn born pianist-composer and bandleader Randy Weston celebrates his 87th birthday. Described by Piano Jazz luminary Marian McPartland as "one of the world's great visionary pianists and composers", Weston has been an influential voice not only in jazz but also the U.S. civil rights movement and raising awareness to the African diaspora. World renown for his storytelling, Weston released his Autobiography entitled African Rhythms in 2010. Weston's signature percussive rhythmic style reflects his dedication to connecting the American "classical" music with its African roots. Catch Colors of Jazz when the NEA Jazz Master jazz pianist and 2011 Guggenheim Fellow joins Bonnie Johnson to talk about his musical journey, cultural explorations and upcoming April 18th performance at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall in Boston, MA.
