Jazz ex­pe­ri­ence: Sheila Jor­dan and Alan Pasqua

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Jazz singer Sheila Jor­dan and pi­anist Alan Pasqua lead a combo play­ing at the Uni­tar­ian Univer­sal­ist Con­gre­ga­tion (107 W. Barcelona Road) at 7 p.m. Satur­day, March 25, in a Santa Fe Mu­sic Col­lec­tive con­cert. Over the past four decades or so, Pasqua has worked with Pat Be­natar, Bob Dy­lan, and Car­los San­tana, as well as with jazzmen Tony Wil­liams, Peter Ersk­ine, and Paul Mo­tian. His last solo out­ing was a 2011 CD, Twin Bill, on which he played the mu­sic of Bill Evans on two pi­anos (via over­dub­bing). Jor­dan is a 2012 Na­tional En­dow­ment for the Arts Jazz Master. In her awards speech she paid trib­ute to “my men­tor, Char­lie Parker,” and like the leg­endary be­bop pioneer, Jor­dan is known for her cre­ative mu­si­cal ap­proach. She’s also renowned for her scat singing and for duo record­ings with Arild An­der­sen, Harvie Swartz, and other bass play­ers. She and Pasqua are joined by the vet­eran Pol­ish bassist Darek “Oles” Oleszkiewicz and Santa Fe’s John Trenta­costa on drums. Tick­ets, $30, can be re­served by call­ing 505-983-6820.
