Presented by Northside Hospital
Special Thanks to Lee J. Howard Entertainment
What better way to wrap up the weekend than an evening under the stars listening to live music with friends!
The Sundays on the River Concert Series returns with 3 live onsite shows for 2021. For this year’s theme of “Jazz for nurturing our heart and soul,” we are bringing magnificent and beloved world-class talent from our own Atlanta backyard.
Atlanta native Joe Alterman expresses a certain upbeat naivete, with a broad smile and bright eyes that make you feel welcome. One would not guess that this is a man hailed by greats; Ramsey Lewis describes his piano playing as ‘a joy to behold’, Les McCann states ‘As a man and musician he is already a giant’. Journalist Nat Hentoff championed three of Alterman’s albums, as well as his writing (Joe wrote liner notes to three Wynton Marsalis/JALC albums), calling one of Joe’s columns “one of the very best pieces on the essence of jazz, the spirit of jazz, that I’ve ever read, and I’m not exaggerating.”
His latest album “The Upside of Down” was released on August 13. Joe is well-known for his joyous performances that keep audiences swinging.
What the critics are saying about Joe Alterman:
“Although much younger than I, Joe Alterman is an inspiration to me! His piano playing, his will to explore, and his ability to swing is a joy to behold.” – Ramsey Lewis
“Festivals from Newport and Monterey to Rio and Nice should try to book Joe while they still can afford him.” – Marc Myers, JazzWax
“Joe Alterman combines outstanding musical technique with an infectious enthusiasm for his work. I’ve seen him fill a room with joy as his skill at the keyboard combines seamlessly with his delightful and appealing onstage personality. Young Alterman is one fine, first-class entertainer.” – Dick Cavett
Live music fills the stage on the second Sunday of the month July through September. Whether it’s a girls’ night out, a date night, or a “you” night, nature will provide the perfect backdrop for the evening. Bring a picnic and blanket and enjoy this night of fun at CNC’s outdoor listening room.
