Victoria Rogers, who came up with the ambitious and successful Tribute Trio series, offers an art and music event, Two Four One, on the afternoon of Sunday, April 10. The Tribute Trio concert series began in May 2010 with pianist John Rangel, drummer Cal Haines, and bassist Michael Glynn taking on the music of Horace Silver. For each of the following 11 months, the trio paid musical tribute to a different jazz pianist, ending with Herbie Hancock in March. A final gig on April 21 at Albuquerque’s Outpost Performance Space (210 Yale Blvd S.E., 505-268-0044, www.outpostspace.org) features new compositions by the trio members and inspired by the series composers.
The trio has a lot of music in store for the Santa Fe audience on April 10, but before it plays, Two Four One begins at 2 p.m. with the opening of an exhibit of Rogers’ landscape photographs and collaborative abstract paintings by Rogers and Haines. The venue is the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Santa Fe, 107 W. Barcelona Road.
The four-part concert begins at 4 p.m. At the top, the Tribute Trio takes the stage with its first-ever guest, woodwinds veteran Arlen Asher, to play selections from Claude Bolling’s Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio. Next, Rangel and company present highlights from the Tribute Trio series, including music by Chick Corea, Oscar Peterson, and Silver. They also debut selections from Dedications, the trio’s new CD, which is available at the Outpost gig. For the third part, Glynn and Haines play a pair of songs in duet form: one a new work by Glynn and the other a Glynn arrangement. The event ends with a drum-solo original by Haines.
The concert is $15 at the door. The artwork hangs at the church (open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and Sundays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) through April 29. For more information, call 989-1088.
