RJA Upcoming: this week!

Our next show, coming right up this Thursday evening, February 25th at 8 p.m. at the Morris Graves Museum of Art, 636 F Street, Eureka. It's piano-sax duo by two great New
York-based players: veteran pianist Frank Kimbrough and tenor
wunderkind Noah Preminger. This promises to be an intimate acoustic
show that will both smolder and spark. Arrive early to enjoy the
galleries at the Graves--and to enjoy some refreshment before the
show. (One of the many things we like about doing shows at the Graves
is that we're licensed to sell wine and beer there!)

Frank and Noah will also lead a free public workshop on composing,
improvising, and the unique challenges of playing as a duo on Friday
morning, February 26 at 11:00 on the stage of HSU's Fulkerson Recital

More information on both events--as well as streaming audio of Frank
and Noah's music--here.

Thursday's performance isn't your only chance to hear great jazz at
the Graves this week. This afternoon (Sunday, February 21st), our
partner for the Kimbrough-Preminger show, the Humboldt Arts Council,
hosst the Inkling Quartet at the monthly Sunday Jazz Jam from 2:00 to
4:30 p.m. The group, which consists of Suzie Laraine on saxes, Jill
Petricca on flutes, Brian Post on keyboards, and Shao Way Wu on bass,
showcases original writing in a chamber-jazz vein.

Hope to see you more than once this week!
