Dal Carver on piano, Jeff Addicott on bass, Gayle on vocals and a few other, easy-to-carry instruments. Maybe a few other local jazz artists… Gayle's trio’s songbook covers a surprising number of popular jazz songs from the ‘20’s through the ’50’s, tunes she's come to love from Duke, Ella, Gershwin, Carmichael, Cole, Berlin, so many from that era. Diana Krall and Gayle have similar influences and Krall is a big influence on her and the band so, there, now you know what to expect.
BTW, we take requests.
Terry Longshore, Artistic Director of Left Edge Percussion, will lead the SOU percussion ensemble performing Michael Gordon's "Timber".
Michael Gordon's Timber is an evening-length tour de force. Scored for six graduated, amplified, wooden Simantras (2x4s). The work brings the physicality, endurance and technique of percussion performance to a new level. In this work, Gordon shapes the music in both polyrhythmic and dynamic waves of textures — often each players' hands are in separate rhythmic 'worlds', each traversing a different dynamic contour from loud to soft to loud.
The performance will begin at 7:12:41 pm and the final note will sound at 8:14:13 pm, coinciding exactly with sunset.

Joanne Rand has toured nationally for 30+ years playing original “Psychedelic-Folk-Revival” music, and has just released her 16th indie CD of original songs. Rand’s vocal styling is all her own: “magical and luxuriant, like the best brandy in the world" (-No Depression). Santa Rosa Press Democrat has called her songs “Nothing short of brilliant.” Joanne Rand’s voice raises your hair. Elegance and fierceness in the same deep breath,” writes poet Gary Snyder. Rand’s 2015 & 2016 CDs both made the folk DJ most-played-list nationwide and are receiving worldwide airplay. Both CDs are recorded with this current band.
Born and bred in the Deep South, Rand has performed in Manhattan, L.A., Toronto, Atlanta, Seattle, Hawaii, Alaska & the Amazon. A North Bay readers’ poll once voted her “Best Acoustic Band.” Based in rural Northern California, with a BFA in music composition, she has performed alongside such greats as Bonnie Raitt, Micky Hart, John Hartford, John Trudell, and Dougie McLean. Rand’s songs reflect a wide array of styles (folk, rock, jazz, Celtic, psychedelic, gospel), weaving tales of: War, peace, loyalty, betrayal, hope and humor. "One of the year’s freshest, most distinctive offerings."-Roots Music Report.
