Wednesday, November 14, 7:30 pm, Rendon Hall at California Jazz Conservatory
OoN – with its unlikely combination of six string tapped bass and bassoon – creates beautiful melodic Chamber Jazz. Sometimes peaceful and meditative, at other times passionate, raging or groovy, the musical bandwidth these two instrumentalists cover on their respective ‘tools’ is surprising. Utilizing virtuosic and unusual playing techniques as well as effects and harmonizers, the musicians put musicality front and center. Paul Hanson’s credits as an improvising bassoonist include Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Billy Cobham, Wayne Shorter, Peter Erskine, Cirque Du Soleil, David Binney, Dennis Chambers, Brian Blade. Ariane Cap’s credits include Muriel Anderson, Tempest, Nick Phillips, The Sippy Cups.
Jazz in the Neighborhood presents its Wednesday night series at CJC with financial support from AFM Musicians Union Local 6.
