New Worlds of Jazz Series: Anne Sajdera
Unique mix of gypsy jazz, original works & music of American jazz masters, Hancock & Kirkland
New Worlds of Jazz Series to the Throckmorton stage, Jazz Destinations, offers a listening experience unlike anything else ever presented before in Marin County.
* Friday, January 13, 7:30 pm
Gypsy culture has long been known for exceptional music and musicians. World music audiences are well-acquainted with the musical prowess of flamenco artists in Spain, “gypsy jazz” in France and Balkan gypsy virtuosity.
However, a lesser-known but no less exceptional culture of gypsy musical art has been flourishing all along in Central Europe, one that actively embraces jazz and with tremendous creativity pulls traditional gypsy and other regional folk songs into our present musical moment, creating new works along the way.
For this final concert of the series, pianist/composer Anne Sajdera will be performing a unique mix of music from this dynamic confluence, as well as original works and music of American jazz masters, such as Herbie Hancock and Kenny Kirkland.
As a pianist and composer, Anne Sajdera is a creative force whose music encompasses an unusually far-flung array of traditions. With musical roots spanning the globe, she melds American and Brazilian jazz to her training in European and Hindustani classical music, creating an utterly personal sound that’s melodically verdant, harmonically sophisticated and rhythmically compelling.
Anne Sajdera – Piano
Eytan Schillinger-Hyman – Bass
Deszon Claiborne – Drums
TBA – Saxophone
Jazz Destinations is curated by Ian Dogole, Marin County recording artist/percussionist/educator and Mario Guarneri, trumpeter and founder of the Fairfax-based nonprofit organization Jazz in the Neighborhood.
