It is Mark Shane Day,” to paraphrase Lorenz Hart. 

The extraordinary pianist will be playing a solo concert, TICKLING APERITIF, concentrating on the music of James P. Johnson.

The concert, sponsored by the Tri-State Jazz Society, will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2011, 2-4:30, at the Old Pine Street Church, 412 Pine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106.

What makes that location special is the church’s good acoustics (it’s been used for recording sessions) and the new Steinway piano.

But wait!  There’s more!   Anyone who has not previously attended a Tri-State Jazz Society concert will be admitted for half-price.  High school and college students with IDs and younger children accompanied by a paying adult are admitted FREE.  Regular admission is $20, members $10.  No advance sales or reservations, so get there early!
