MIDTOWN VANGUARD JAZZ SERIES AT CLARA PRESENTS...


JOE MAZZAFERRO QUINTET w/STRINGS

Originally premiering in 2014, the Joe Mazzaferro with Strings project has only performed on several occasions and will make its Sacramento debut at the Midtown Vanguard Jazz Series at the CLARA Auditorium. But this isn’t just your standard “Insert Famous Jazz Musician’s Name Here” with Strings playing beautiful orchestration of ballads and tunes from the American Songbook (a la Charlie Parker, Clifford Brown, and many others). The ensemble’s repertoire focuses on original compositions and arrangements that combine elements of modern jazz and contemporary classical music, including a 4-movement suite. While each work continues the tradition of Third Stream (a music that exists halfway between classical and jazz as coined by Gunther Schuller), the sociological and philosophical side of the music spreads a message of love, hope, and understanding in today’s world.
