Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media - — P.W.

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.
