The Jazz at Bucknell fall 2018 series will welcome bassist, composer and arranger Ben Allison and his quartet, Think Free, for a free, public performance on Monday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Bucknell Hall.
In a career that spans nearly 30 years, Allison has developed his own identifiable sound, solidifying an international reputation as one of the leading voices of his generation. Known for his inspired arrangements, inventive grooves and hummable melodies, he draws from the jazz tradition and a range of influences from rock and folk to 20th century classical and world music, seamlessly blending them into a cinematic, cohesive whole.
Jazz at Bucknell has several events lined up for their fall 2018 series. Visit here for more information about the acts coming soon to campus.
