Making the scene: Second Nature CD release
Second Nature is the title of a new CD that explores the trio format: bassist Andy Zadrozny and drummer David Brady taking turns with pianists Brian Bennett, Rick Bowman, Bert Dalton, and John Rangel. The repertoire is culled from the keyboardists’ favorite jazz standards by Lerner and Loewe, Mel Tormé, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Sérgio Mendes, George Gershwin, and other stars of the genre. A CD release party is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at El Mesón (213 Washington Ave., 505-983-6756). Proceeds from album sales will be used to produce a second disc like
Second Nature, designed to “promote local jazz artists to new audiences, new venues, and attract tourists to Santa Fe as a jazz scene,” according to album materials. There is no cover charge.
