Friends of Music again presents their popular summer concert series of four concerts, kicking off with the Jason Carder Jazz Trio on Sunday, June 22, at 2 p.m. in the Church. Composed of three charismatic musicians — Jason Carder, Jeff Haskell, and Brice Winston — who have international reputations for their versatility, this trio offers a traditional but inventive approach to the American Songbook and Gospel Standards. Jeff Haskell on keyboard is the harmonic engine behind the group. Brice Winston on saxophone and Jason Carder on trumpet both have their own unique styles of jazz, blues, and pop music. Each of these musicians has a distinguished history of recording and performing throughout the world. The trio format gives the three musicians unencumbered freedom to explore different textural devices and rhythmic avenues. This is a must-see group which, due to the touring demands of each, does not have the opportunity to perform in Tucson on a regular basis. Listen to them here.
Concerts continue through September 7. For more information click here.
The suggested concert admission is $20 per person, or whatever can be afforded. Friends of Music provides support to the music program at St. Philip’s, through sponsoring concerts, special musical events, commissions, scholarships, and community outreach programs.
