MAC – Multnomah Arts Center Events

An Evening of Jazz

Friday • November 2 • 7pm

Mace Bass

An evening of improvisation by Multnomah Arts Center jazz musicians.

Jazz piano: the homegrown American art form with its roots in particular harmonies and rhythms but its magic based on the excitement of improvisation! The music, emotion and imagination change every time the music is played; they change as the music is played; and they lead to melodies, movement, textures and ideas that have never been heard before and will never be heard again.

Come hear four of our city’s fine jazz musicians perform at Multnomah Arts Center. Aaron Pruitt, Dave Fleschner, James Blackburn and Jack Buddeke – all teachers at the Center – will create an evening of unique music, each in his own style. Along the way they may be joined by some jazz trumpet, bass, mandolin or even a second piano. Where has the lineage of Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Thelonius Monk and others brought us? Where will the new pianists lead us? Listen to these new explorers and get a taste of the answer November 2.
