It's hard to believe that our 2009-10 season is almost over. Thanks to
all of you for coming out to hear the music and for being such a great
audience. One of the things that we hear over and over again from the
artists is how much they enjoy playing for you, because you're really
listening and you're so supportive.
We're closing out the season with a bang. When Frank Kimbrough heard
that our last show of the year was Antonio Sanchez and Migration, he
exclaimed, "Oh, that band is KILLIN'!" Antonio Sanchez is probably
best known as the drummer in the Pat Metheny Group since 2002, but
that high-profile gig hasn't kept him from also playing with a host of
other jazz legends in the past decade. Migration also includes tenor
saxophonist Donny McCaslin (who many of you will remember from his own
concert here last season), alto saxophonist David Binney and bassist
Scott Colley. You can read more about the whole band, hear streaming
audio of their music and check out lots of cool links at
The concert is Thursday, April 1 at 8 p.m. in the Kate Buchanan Room.
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE—that's a change from our early publicity and
what's printed on the season tickets. Tickets are $15 general
admission and $10 for students and seniors and can be purchased at the
Works in Arcata and Eureka, Peoples Records and Missing Link Records
in Arcata, online at http://www.redwoodjazzalliance.org/tickets.htm
and at the door.
Antonio Sanchez and Migration will also present a free workshop the
afternoon of the concert, Thursday, April 1 at 5 p.m. in the Studio
Theater at HSU (right next to the Van Duzer Theater.)
We'll see you at the show!
