A New Concert Series From Pianist Phil DeGreg

Sep 2, 2016

Local jazz pianist Phil DeGreg is organizing a series of seven intimate concerts featuring a wide range of themes from Brazilian music to The Beatles to the late Kenny Poole.

You just know that jazz expert Oscar Treadwell is smiling on Cincinnati.

Ten years after his death, his adopted hometown provides the background for a major motion picture about jazz icon Miles Davis, Don Cheadle’s new "Miles Ahead."

Treadwell, who died on April 1, 2006, at age 79, was the jazz voice and conscience for Cincinnati for 46 years.  

If a Miles Davis tune was heard on radio here, most likely it was on Treadwell's shows on WVXU-FM, WNOP-AM, WGUC-FM, WVAE-FM or WZIP-AM. In fact, "O.T." is such an institution that his shows are still on the air here at WVXU-FM 10 p.m.-midnight Sunday.

Phil DeGreg's concert tonight at CCM has been postponed (email from him a few minutes ago):

I am really sorry to have to make this notification and to intrude into your email inbox, but due to the fact that the University of Cincinnati has officially closed today through midnight because of inclement weather, my retirement celebration concert at Patricia Corbett Theatre this evening has been cancelled. I hope that I will have the opportunity to reschedule it some time, and certainly will send out word.   Thanks for your support.   Phil DeGreg
