Classically Jazz Concert No. 2 in Heber Springs

March 3 @ 3:00 pm

Classically Jazz Concert No. 2 coming to Heber Springs, AR. by Pat Ferguson

If you appreciate music, love classical music, get a kick out of jazz, or just need an infusion of great music, then you will want to attend the upcoming Classically Jazz Concert No. 2 on March 3, 2024 at 3 pm. Renew Church, 1099 W. Pine St., Heber Springs.

Gretchen Klanke, classical flautist, joins three great jazzy artists Dr. Tammie Burger, piano, David Higginbotham, string bass, and Patrick Lindsey, drums to present Claude Bolling’s SUITE for FLUTE and JAZZ PIANO TRIO No 2.

Claude Bolling, was a jazz musician and composer. “Among the lessons I learned from Duke Ellington,” Bolling said in 1991, “is that you write specifically for the personality of the instrumental soloists.” So when he wrote the Suite no.1 for Rampal, he did so with his specific personality in mind. “Claude’s music was so vastly appealing,” a flutist who toured with Bolling for 11 seasons, said , “because it distilled attributes of sophisticated classical and esoteric jazz styles into accessible palettes of happiness, excitement, innocence, pathos, playfulness and sincerity.”

Bolling’s Suite No. 1, played by Klanke and Burger in the fall of 2022, was a mix of Baroque elegance with modern swing. It told a musical story of the piano gently “seducing” the flute from prim and proper classical baroque style at the beginning of the Suite to the freedom and wildness of jazz at the end. Come and hear how the music continues…
