Young man with a horn: Brian Win­gard Quar­tet

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Jazz both cool and hot hap­pens at the Mu­seum Hill Café (710 Camino Lejo), when the Brian Win­gard Quar­tet takes the stage on Fri­day, Aug. 14, at 7 p.m. Tenor sax­o­phon­ist Win­gard makes mu­sic with Chris Ishee, pi­ano; Andy Zadrozny, bass; and John Trenta­costa, drums. On his web­site, Win­gard, an Ohio na­tive, re­lates how he caught the sax­o­phone bug af­ter see­ing the shiny in­stru­ments filled with levers and but­tons in a pa­rade as an eightyear-old. Three years later, his mother fi­nally gave in and bought him a tenor sax, and he went on to study with alumni of the Duke Elling­ton and Count Basie or­ches­tras and earn a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in jazz stud­ies from Cen­tral State Univer­sity in Wil­ber­force, Ohio. In 2005 he moved to New Mex­ico, where he has worked with trum­pet star Bobby Shew, vet­eran clar­inetist Ed­die Daniels, and many other jazz mu­si­cians. The Aug. 14 con­cert is pre­sented by the Santa Fe Mu­sic Col­lec­tive. Ad­mis­sion is $25. Call 505-983-6820 or see www.santafe­mu­s­ic­col­lec­ — P.W.
