Randy Weston Quartet
Reed College, Kaul Auditorium
FREE

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.
