Begin the Beguine
Do you fancy a sort of jazz music that features clarinets and saxophones buoyed by a wide-bodied, flat-wound string guitar making with the rhythm as two well-seasoned woodwind players wind themselves around all that? If you answered yes to that tangled up, somewhat purple question, then we have got the show for you. The Anderson Trio (identical twin brothers Peter and Will on horns and guitarist Félix Lemerle making with the strumming and plucking) perform as part of the Placitas Artists Series on Saturday, April 14 at 3pm at Las Placitas Presbyterian Church. This youngish set of next-gen jazzers and Juilliard graduates has been lauded by the music critics over at Gray Lady as well as those residing at Vanity Fair and Jazz Times. That's reasonable. Their debut record Correspondence cooks the brain with its hot and fresh perspectives on standards and their performances—filled with gems written by the likes of Cole Porter and Horace Silver—puts you into a jazz trance both potent and refreshing. Tickets for this all-ages recital are priced between $15 and $25. (August March)
