Alan Jones Academy of Music and Teutonic Wine Co. present
MAINLINE JAZZ EVERY WEDNESDAY
featuring Mike Horsfall’s tribute to Cal Tjader
Cal Tjader was undoubtedly the most famous non-Latino leader of Latin jazz bands, an extraordinary distinction. From the 1950s until his death, he was practically the point man between the worlds of Latin jazz and mainstream bop; his light, rhythmic, joyous vibraphone manner could comfortably embrace both styles.
Mike Horsfall is in demand as a composer, arranger, recording artist, concert soloist and educator on both vibraphone and piano. He has performed with Chuck Redd, Leroy Vinegar, Rebecca Kilgore and Gary Hobbs, and has recorded with Pink Martini, the Nu Shooz Orchestra and with Tall Jazz, a trio he co-founded in 1989 which was voted into the Jazz Society of Oregon’s 2010 Hall of Fame. Mike serves on the music faculty at Willamette University and Mt. Hood Community College.
Accompanying Mike will be Cheryl Alex (flute & vocals), Dan Gaynor (piano), Bill Athens (bass), Charlie Doggett (drums), Bobby Torres (congas).
Music starts at 7:30 pm. We offer a small plate menu available 5 to 9 pm. There will be a $5 cover charge at the door. 21+ only.
