San Diego Jazz Heritage Concert- Celebration of The Gerry Mulligan Sextet at Hoover High School
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: March 21, 2016
KSDS is celebrating San Diego’s rich jazz heritage with some very special concerts! The second one will be TONIGHT at 7:30PM at Hoover High School and it will celebrate the informal beginning of The Gerry Mulligan Sextet. The group only lasted a couple of years but was one of the most unique small groups in jazz history and is often overlooked. Out of all of Mulligan’s ensembles, the sextet was one of his favorites. This is not a re-creation of the original concert, rather a celebration of it! We will be forming a group of world-class jazz musicians to perform the original arrangements and it will be a rare opportunity to hear the music played live. Pete Christlieb will be filling the baritone chair and Harry Allen (tenor) will play the Zoot Sims book. Ron Stout (trumpet), Linda Small (trombone), Jim Hughart (bass). Kendall Kay (drums) and Mike Wofford (piano) are also tapped for this special night. Tickets are only $20 (cash only if you're paying at the door the night of the concert)! Make your reservation NOW by calling 619-388-3743.
