With an ear toward avant-garde, free & electroacoustic jazz, Chad finds the sweet spot between pushing the musical envelope and paying homage to the great sounds that built jazz. It's a little later at night, so be ready to stretch out on occasion. If you dig it check out Wednesday nights as well (same progressive time, same progressive channel).
From the days of her Spruce Street Forum to the current Fresh Sound series, concert promoter, record label Exec., and San Diegan Bonnie Wright has a passion for exploring and sharing experimental & avant-garde music with her community. Bonnie plays a vital part with keeping the creative-music flame burning here in San Diego by bringing in cutting-edge artists from around the world. Her Fresh Sound series wraps up this month with a performance from the Rez Abbasi Trio, the #2 Rising Star Guitarist winner in a recent Down Beat magazine poll.
I sat down for a Progressive Nights interview with Bonnie where we talked about her passion for music, the local music scene, the upcoming Fresh Sound performance this weekend, and the great line-up of some upcoming concerts too. Enjoy.
