Blues on Now Is the Time

Aug 19, 2016

It’s blue and it’s the blues on Now Is the Time, Saturday, August 20th at 9 pm, We pick a Blueberry Rag-A-Muffin to begin the program, one of Linda Robbins Coleman’s many delightful piano rags, and then turn to the second movement of David Amram’s Violin Concerto, called Blues, which also includes an extended saxophone solo.

It's good-bye to summer with a little—and more than a little—jazz on Now Is the Time, Sunday, September 15th at 10 pm. Quartet San Francisco starts off the program with Jeremy Cohen's summery Tango Toscana. Saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa honors his heritage and also the victims of 9/11 in Are There Clouds in India? Bassist John Patitucci works grooves into Scenes for Viola and Percussion, and Linda Robbins Coleman spins out a piano rag in Bill’s Song.
