Siskiyou Music Project kicks off its 18th season with a collaboration featuring pianist Patti Moran McCoy and SMP artistic director Ed Dunsavage on guitar. This will be their second performance at the Old Siskiyou Barn and they will be exploring music from the Great American Songbook, featuring the music of composers such as George Gershwin, Victor Young, Bill Evans and Miles Davis.
Patti began her career as a concert pianist, but after hearing Oscar Peterson performing, decided that jazz was the music she wanted to play. She worked with legendary bassist Scott LaFaro before he began working with pianist Bill Evans. She also performed with Mel Tormé, Oscar Pettiford, and the Terry Gibbs Dream Band from 1959 through 1961. One of the highlights of her career was playing at the Hickory House in New York City. ”It was pretty amazing to be playing to an audience consisting of many jazz greats like Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Erroll Garner, Cannonball Adderley (he always called me ‘Miss Moran’}—and anyone who was anybody was playing in the city at that time.”
This is a very rare opportunity to hear Patti McCoy in such an intimate setting as the Old Siskiyou Barn on the 9 foot Mason & Hamlin Grand Piano. Make your reservations early as this show will sell out!
