- Jazz for Barb Series: Bill Runge Quintet
February 28, 2019
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Carlo Morena is one of Italy’s foremost jazz pianists and has performed and recorded with such musicians as Dave Liebman, Bob Mintzer, John Abercrombie, and Charlie Mariano. Through connections in jazz education, Morena met Vancouver guitarist, Jared Burrows, three years ago and the two found they share a similar approach to composition and harmony influenced by European composers such as Kenny Wheeler and Enrico Pieranunzi. The group will present compositions by Burrows and Morena, in company with Toronto drummer, Joe Sorbara, and Jared’s long-time collaborator, Montana bass player, Rob Kohler. Expect music focused on melody and an intimate, chamber jazz aesthetic.
This year, the series Jazz for Barb will be happening at Frankie’s Jazz Club (765 Beatty Street, Vancouver). Tickets are $16. For information and tickets, please visit www.coastaljazz.ca or phone 604 688 6368.
