James M Gregg Quintet
Wednesday, February 10th, 2010 at 7:30pm
James M. Gregg returns to Tony Starlight's with a new quartet and a new sound. Blending jazz with rock and pop, the show will feature original instrumental and vocal compositions and a handful of "revisited" standards from the Great American Songbook. In a tradition stretching from Miles Davis through Jon Hassell and contemporary artists such as Christian Scott, Cuong Vu, Esperanza Spalding and Sachal Vasandani, James extends the tonal palette of his trumpet and extends the language of jazz with an interesting and inventive set.
The show on February 10 will feature some of Portland's "young lions," including Willie Matheis (sax), Andrew Oliver (piano), Sam Howard (bass) and Stephen Pancarev (drums). Don't miss this exciting and creative evening of contemporary jazz!
