Join WRTI’s Jeff Duperon as he broadcasts live from Art After 5 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, tonight starting at 6 pm. The featured performers at the museum are the East Gipsy Band, respected jazz and gypsy musicians from the Hungarian music scene. Integrating traditional Roma music with improvisation and jazz, their music features well-known French, German, Italian, Hungarian, and Roma tunes. Jazz saxophonist and keyboardist Tim Ries performs on their debut album, released in May 2011. Ries is known for his work with Maynard Ferguson, and The Rolling Stones Project.
Jeff Duperon will bring you the great jazz you always hear on WRTI, and will debut music from the East Gipsy Band that has not yet been released in the United States. Jeff will also speak to Tim Ries about the upcoming album from the group.
