New Mexico Jazz Workshop’s Jazz Under the Stars concert series presents a soulfully intensive excursion to the land of complex chordal constructions and precise percussive profundity on Saturday, Aug. 9, at 7pm at the Albuquerque Museum Amphitheater (2000 Mountain NW). Pat Malone Quartet, out of Santa Fe, and local jazzsters Arnaldo Acosta Quintet play combinations of traditional and contemporary jazz guaranteed to complement the August evening weather in these parts. Malone's career has demonstrated his proficiency and popularity among varied audiences and other musicians with work as a session player, producer and touring master of mellow. Malone will be joined on stage by Kanoa Kaluhiwa (sax), Colin Deuble (bass) and Diego Arencon (drums). Fat City drummer/local percussion legend Arnaldo Acosta opens the evening with his soul jazz project, an outfit consisting of Stu MacAskie (keys), Colin Deuble (bass) and Phil Arnold (trombone and harmonica). Together, these two dynamic ensembles provide listeners with the opportunity to hear jazz by starlight, influenced by late summer in Burque. Tickets for this all-ages concert are $14-$16. Doors open at 6:30pm, and the music begins at 7pm. (August March)
