More Jazz, More Stars

Burque's fixation with the bright and shiny continues when a certain storied musical concert series called Jazz Under the Stars hosted by the New Mexico Jazz Workshop, continues to thrill with top talent mixed thoroughly with local flava. On Saturday, June 16, gather at the Albuquerque Museum Amphitheater for a good old gig featuring ace guitarist Tony Cesarano. This graceful axe-handling magician will be backed by a band that includes Bonnie Schmader on flute, Pat Rhoads playing piano, Mark Tatum handling bass, Doug Cardwell on drums and percussionist Joey Trujillo. That sextet equals hot jazz, folks! The tuning up starts at 7pm and tickets range from $15 to $18, so get thee out to this all ages show, dig? (August March)

Each year, the New Mexico Jazz Workshop presents a concert called “Women’s Voices” in which the jazz tradition in Burque is explored, extrapolated upon and ultimately driven toward an ecstatic response by local musicians whose gift with this sublime American art form is both expected and evocative. It’s expected because these are some of the best vocalists in town; in its presentation the yearly series evokes a set of actions and reactions that contain wonder, wisdom and a wide-ranging musicality that enchants. The offering for 2018 is entitled Sing the Town Red. Curated by long-time local jazzer Wendy Beach, this year’s event occurs at the Albuquerque Museum Amphitheater (2000 Mountain Rd. NW) and besides Beach, includes jazz scene luminaries like vocalists Abby Maxwell, Christine Fawson, Marietta Benevento and Toni Morgan. The band on the side sorta rocks too. I mean it includes bad-ass players such as Jim Ahrend on piano, Dimi Disanti playing the guitar, Colin Deuble blistering the bass, John Bartlit handling the sticks, percussionist Ricky Carrido, saxman Lee Taylor and trumpeter Christine Fawson. If you’re not there, it’s because you’re totally el siete. 7pm • $15 to $18 • All-ages.
