Mt. Bachelor Riverhouse Jazz: Double BIll
Fri, Dec 22 - Sat, Dec 23
Bend has emerged as a hub of jazz in Oregon. Mt. Bachelor Riverhouse Jazz features two shows (Friday & Saturday) on one weekend each month, from October to April. Our shows feature some of the world’s greatest musicians from jazz, blues, soul and R&B.
A unique format, featuring two quartets on the same bill, separately led by Portland-based pianists Darrell Grant (Tony Williams, Brian Blade) and David Goldblatt (The Chevy Chase Show, Diana Ross, Dizzy Gillespie). New Zealand¹s Evening Post wrote about Grant, ³I didn¹t know piano could be this good,² Goldblatt is well known as a composter and arranger for numerous films and TV shows, who moved to Portland several years ago after a long career as a major player in the LA music scene, Each quartet will be backed by Chris Brown on drums, Dave Captein on bass, and guest appearances by saxophonist John Nastos. This is an amazing opportunity to hear contrasting styles and sensitivities.
