Thursday, June 18 – Peter Sprague’s Planet Cole Porter – 7:30 p.m. – live streamed, link below.
Peter Sprague and Rebecca Jade were awarded the 2018 Best Jazz Album by the San Diego Music Awards for their stellar “Planet Cole Porter” release. For this concert Peter and the group take hold of the classic songs of Cole Porter and presents them in a new color of samba, funk, salsa, and jazz. “Just One of Those Things” swinging fast and morphing over to funk, “Love For Sale” taking a trip to Cuba, and “I Get a Kick Out of You” heavily influenced by Eddie Harris’ “Freedom Jazz Dance.” They then intentionally go off course with a new reading of Crosby, Stills &Nash’s amazing “Guinevere” and a sonic visit to the Beatles. It’ll be a great night of music.
The band includes some of the best with Rebecca Jade on vocals, Tripp Sprague on sax and flute, Gunnar Biggs on bass, Duncan Moore on drums, and Peter Sprague on guitar.
