Rocco John Quartet
October 9 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am
Born and raised in the heart of NYC’s Greenwich Village, Rocco is a composer/performer who presents exciting, original music with a twist of structure and a melodic base. He is a strong improviser, whose written works feature improvisation as a compositional device.
Rocco John has studied with Jazz legends, Lee Konitz and Sam Rivers, as well as the direct disciples of Nadia Boulanger. As a result, his original compositions blend that “in” and “out” sensibility seamlesslyand his discography has garnered high praise.
As a long-time teaching Artist, Rocco has years of experience running music residencies, which he thoroughly enjoys. He holds a Bachelors degree and a Masters degree in composition from Hunter College.
