ADRIAN MARTIN SEXTET, Sat, Mar 30th, Artichoke Music Cafe, SE Portland, $15 Cover
Hi Jazz Fans,
I’ll be presenting a sextet at the first ever Artichoke Jazz Nite on March 30. The Artichoke Music Café is one of the best listening rooms in Portland. It’s been the home of acoustic music for decades because of the wonderful atmosphere. The good folks at Artichoke have asked me to help diversify the music presented in this historical venue. For the first time ever there will be some swinging jazz boppin’ the hallowed halls of the coolest café in town (not mention sultry ballads and exciting Latin jazz from Brazil). Wine, beer, coffee and tea are available as well as light snacks. Turn off those cell phones and turn on the groovin’ sounds.
The Adrian Martin Sextet features Mike Horsfall on Vibraphone and piano, Tim Jensen on Sax, Clarinet and Flute, Kevin Deitz on upright bass, Gene Ermell on drums and very special guest-Susan Sandal on vocals. I’ll be playing guitar and singing a couple of tunes. We will explore the gamut of America’s true art-form from Benny Goodman, Miles Davis, Chick Corea and more. Featuring selections from the songbooks of Billy Holiday, Diana Krall and Frank Sinatra (we might even sneak in some Beatles). This will be great fun. To learn more about the great players I’m lucky enough to play with, please look at the attached flyer.
