Alley Resident Acting Company Member
Arnett Cobb Project
Via a grant from the Fox Foundation, Alley Resident Acting Company member Shawn Hamilton is writing his first play. His subject is Arnett Cobb, the internationally acclaimed “wild man of the tenor sax,” a jazz musician who grew up in Houston and lived in the city for much of his career.
Join us for an excerpt from this work in progress. The excerpt will be followed by a discussion of Arnett Cobb and his legacy with Shawn Hamilton; Cobb’s daughter, Lizette Cobb; and Tierney Malone of the Jazz Church of Houston and Houston Jazz Spotlight on KPFT. Audience Q & A to follow.
