Hello dear listeners!
Set your clocks forward and join us on Sunday, March 11th, at 3pm *. Due to unforseen circumstances Hush Point will not be performing, but we will welcome Jeremey Udden and his Trio/Quartet to the parlor. These awesome jazz explorers will take us on a musical journey of improvised collaboration.
“With his beautiful, round soprano tone, the saxophonist Udden lends a haunting sheen to tunes spanning the soothingly melodic to the jaggedly free.”
– MODERN DRUMMER
“although he’s a super jazz saxophonist, [Udden] openly embraces the rock, folk, and country sounds he heard in his youth… More often than not, Udden’s music opts for a more gentle, almost pastoral quality–although it retains a muscle and grit to balance the lyric softness. The more difficult Udden’s music becomes to classify, the better it seems to get.”
Please join us as The Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet bring their musical genius to the Parlor for an outstanding afternoon of inspiration.
Sunday 11 March, Jeremy Udden Trio/Quartet
Doors at 2:30 PM, concert begins at 3:00 PM* sharp.
*Remember to set you clocks forward for Daylight Saving TIme!!
Please join our mailing list for more information. RSVPs are required.
