Prepare for a night of smooth jazz from one of the most respected contemporary artists in the jazz world on Sat., Nov. 11.
Ari Hoenig, jazz drummer virtuoso, was born into an accomplished musical family. His father is a conductor and classical music singer, his mother a violinist and pianist. He picked up piano and violin at four years old, and the drums followed at 12 years old. By the age of 14, Hoenig was playing in jazz clubs with other budding musicians.
I don't know about you, but the only talent I was practicing throughout the single digits of my childhood was busting out the moves with my Ribbon Dancer™.
The trio—consisting of Hoenig on drums, Gilad Hekselman on guitar and Orlando le Flemming on bass—has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America. This will be their only performance in Oregon (take that, Portland!) so take advantage of this rare opportunity to enjoy a solid night of jazz from this talented trio.
