The Carlton Kitto Ensemble @ Someplace Else, Kolkata : Monday Jazz Monday Blues 14 March 2011

Calcutta, March 11, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Hosted by the Calcutta Classical Guitar Society and produced Littlei, the popular Monday Jazz Monday Blues Live Program Series at SOMEPLACE ELSE, The Park, Kolkata on March 14, 2011 will feature THE CARLTON KITTO ENSEMBLE performing live from 9:00 pm onwards.

Carlton Kitto says, "The transition from Swing to Bop happened in the late 30s (38 – 39) by a young guitar genius Charlie Christian who died at the age of 22. This however was taken up by a group of highly talented musicians like Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk – Max Roach and others and during the early experimental sessions at the Minton’s in Harlem came to be known as Be Bop Jazz. The most challenging form of music from all angles. Harmonically – technically – lyrically or from any other form. It soon revolutionized the world. Be Bop Jazz still remains authentic in form and this movement is the mainstay of our music which we have been trying to promote for many years mainly through myself and the devoted Nondon Bagchi. We have had many changes in the Carlton Kitto Ensemble and at one point the Carlton Kitto Big Band; we hope to go on keeping Be Bop alive in India and hope all you Jazz lovers will help us in this endeavor."
