Sad Bastards, Loose Standards
Saturday - November, 16 @ 8:00pm
Area men Chris Klaxton (trumpet) and Mike Effenberger (keys) join forces to plumb the depths of the great American songbook of jazz standards, the lesser American songbook, spirituals, new standards, and the good and bad news of this post-tonal musical world. “To plumb the depths” comes from the concept of lowering a lead weight into the ocean on a long rope to establish the water’s distance downward. To do so one would be required to drop the weight to the very bottom, extending the line entirely until the answer is found. May it be so.
