THE Jazz Club
THE Jazz Club Continues on November 7, 2019 with Anton Schwartz
On Thursday, November 7, the Cloverdale Arts Alliance will continue THE Jazz Club season with winners of the 2016 Northwest Acoustic Jazz Ensemble of the Year, the Anton Schwartz Sextet.
Jazz’s greatest improvisers create music that packs an emotional punch. It’s a lesson that tenor saxophonist Anton Schwartz learned well. His quintet’s latest album, Flash Mob, spent eight weeks in jazz radio’s Top 10 and earned a four-star review in Down Beat magazine, reinforcing Schwartz’s reputation as a passionate but poised improviser and smart purveyor of captivating melodies.
Schwartz has performed at jazz’s most prestigious clubs and festivals, including the Blue Note and Dizzy’s (NYC), Blues Alley (DC), Yoshi’s (Oakland), Jazz Alley (Seattle), and the Monterey Jazz Festival. Recent engagements include sold-out shows at Jazz at Lincoln Center and a feature as soloist with the Boston Pops in Boston Symphony Hall. He is a longtime faculty member at the California Jazz Conservatory and has taught extensively at the Stanford Jazz Workshop and the Brubeck Institute. Schwartz is also the author of a popular blog about jazz, improvisation and harmony.
Playing with Schwartz are sextet members Joel Behrman on trumpet, John Grove on trombone, Josh Nelson on piano, Jeff Denson on bass, and drummer, Lorca Hart.
The Cloverdale Arts Alliance Gallery is located at 204 N. Cloverdale Blvd. Tickets are $15 for Cloverdale Arts Alliance members and $20 for non-members. Doors open at 7:00 pm; music begins at 7:30 pm. THE Jazz Club takes place the first Thursday of each month from October through May. The wine sponsor for THE Jazz Club is Rodney Strong Vineyards.
