Sean Jones: Inspired by Miles Davis’s Jazz

Friday, April 6, 2018, 8 PM

SeanJones Jazz Monster1Music and spirituality have always intertwined in the artistic vision of trumpeter, composer, educator, and activist Sean Jones. As a child he performed with the church choir in his hometown and switched from the drums to trumpet upon his first exposure to Miles Davis at age ten.

The New York Times describes Sean Jones as “a trumpeter with an incisive tone and a firm grasp of jazz traditions,” and JazzTimes writes, “When Jones solos, soaring with a gentle strength as his band swells behind him, it’s not just a pretty melody… It’s praise.”

Tickets: $40 ($32 Students & Seniors 62+ &active military families)

Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds / Indie Folk

Friday, April 13, 2018, 8 PM

During a solo journey to the Azores Islands in 2011, Dana Louise, a visual artist, taught herself to play guitar. The daughter of Ezra Idlet of the Grammy-nominated Trout Fishing in America, Dana forged the beginnings of her sound, practicing amidst the archipelago’s lava rocks and dragon trees.
Joined by the Glorious Birds — Adams Collins (vibraphone and 5-string banjo), and Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood (Trout Fishing in America/guitar, percussion and bass) — Dana brings her vibrant, melodic vocals and finger picking to a body of complex songs. Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds work to leave their audiences glowing with the magic music can bring: genuine human connection.

The group draws inspiration from all over the world, utilizing Pan-American rhythms including cumbia, bossa nova, rumba, bolero, tango, jazz, and klezmer music. Their unique sounds and the experience of their colorful, passionate performances continues to captivate audiences.
