Celebrating Purim: Cal Haines’ quartet
Cal Haines’ Flora Purim Project featuring Jackie Zamora takes the stage on the Plaza at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 21, as part of the free Santa Fe Bandstand concert series. Haines has a long and deep love for jazz. The Ohio native began drum lessons 60 years ago, and by the age of twelve, he had decided that jazz was his favored domain. Over the years he has performed with Charlie Rich, Clark Terry, Aaron Copland, Bobby Shew, and John Proulx, among many others. Two Santa Fe projects, both initiated in 2010, are the Tribute Trio — with pianist John Rangel and bassist Michael Glynn — and the SuperSax New Mexico nonet. Singing with Haines’ new group is Peru native Zamora, who is known locally as a member of the Albuquerque band Baracutanga. The quartet — also with saxophonist Kanoa Kaluhiwa, keyboardist Jim Ahrend, and bassist Colin Deuble — plays “Light as a Feather,” “500 Miles High,” “You’re Everything,” and other tunes by the BrazilianAmerican singer Flora Purim. The concert is presented by the 10th annual New Mexico Jazz Festival. Visit www.santafebandstand.org. — P.W.
