The Jeremy Wendelin Quartet performs Sunday
August 7, 2010
VAIL, Colorado – If you’re looking to jazz up your Sunday market stroll, then look no further than the Vail Jazz Festival stage on Meadow Drive outside Annie’s, where the Jeremy Wendelin Quartet will share their soulful jazz from noon to 3 p.m. today.
The Quartet is comprised of Jeremy Wendelin (saxophone, flute, clarinet), Bill Morse (piano), Colin Gieg (bass) and Scott Mattson (drums). Playing both classic and contemporary jazz, the Quartet focuses on great, entertaining compositions, with a sound that goes beyond the talents of its soloists
“Our material ranges from classics like Brubeck’s ‘Blue Rondo’ to new tunes like Metheny’s ‘Last Train Home’, and original compositions and arrangements, ” says group leader Wendelin. “We love to swing, groove, and have a good time, but what sets us apart is the variety of rhythms, textures, colors – and the way we use them to capture an audience.”
The Vail Jazz Foundation presents the blues, standards, vocals and straight ahead jazz at the Vail Farmers’ Market from noon to 3:30 p.m. weekly. Next week’s concert features the Max Wagner Quartet.
The Vail Jazz Foundation is nonprofit organization, celebrating 15 years of providing outstanding jazz concerts and jazz education programs in the Vail Valley of Colorado. For more information, visit http://www.vailjazz.org.
