Randy Weston Quartet
Reed College, Kaul Auditorium
For six decades, Randy Weston has remained one of the world’s foremost
pianists and composers. Widely regarded as a musical innovator and
visionary, Weston was named a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz
Master in 2001. Born in New York, he was immersed in a rich musical
culture, counting Cecil Payne, Coleman Hawkins, Duke Ellington, and
Thelonious Monk among his friends and teachers. In 1967, after a tour of
14 African countries, Weston made his home in Morocco, where he lived
for six years, and infused his style with the music of the region.
Today, Weston’s compositions continue to inform and inspire, bringing
American and African musical traditions together. This is a free concert
offered by Reed College in conjunction with Black History Month.
