Sunday, August 26, 5:30-7pm at Rendon Hall, California Jazz Conservatory
Ratatet plays modern electro-acoustic jazz/world music composed by drummer Alan Hall as well as arrangements of modern jazz standards. The band features a unique front line of bassoon, trombone, and vibes that moves between lyrical melodies and muscular grooves. Their music has been described by jazz critics as “scintillatingly different and passionate,” “beautifully textured electro-acoustic music laced with arresting sonorities,” and “a delight for younger, open-eared listeners.” You’ll hear music from their two CDs Heroes, Saints and Clowns and Arctic as well as new pieces.
Alan Hall, drums — Paul Hanson, bassoon and sax — John Gove, trombone — Dillon Vado, vibes and percussion — Greg Sankovich, piano and keys — Jeff Denson, basses and vocals
