Fourth Friday Jazz Series featuring Peter Sprague, Leonard Patton, Tripp Sprague
July 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm$18 – $25
PETER SPRAGUE’S BOOMER JAZZ
The Peter Sprague trio explores the jazz tradition of improvisation but with a slightly different spin — they bring their jazz viewpoint to songs that resonate with the boomers. They start with The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, James Taylor, and Cream, and then for balance they play “Georgia” by Hoagy Carmichael, add in a Cole Porter beauty, and samba on one of Peter’s original compositions. The trio includes Tripp (who is Peter’s brother) on saxophone who also doubles on flute, chromatic harmonica and percussion; Leonard Patton singing up a storm all the while sitting on a cajon (percussion box), and Peter who plays a one of kind double neck guitar along with an array of special pedals on the floor that he adds in as needed. Together they travel to special aural vistas all with the spirit of FUN leading the way — the vibe is contagious, the sound pulls you in, and happily the woes of the world ease up.
