Wow, just wow. The turnout and enthusiasm for our big "experiment" of having a kid's concert was overwhelming. We had such a great time, the weather was perfect, and I can't say enough nice things about everyone who joined us. A big thanks to Eric Herman for sharing his music with us.
Now we have a bit of a change of plans. Unfortunately due to a last minute opportunity, Charlie Porter had to cancel his trip up here. We're getting him back up here in October, so don't worry, you'll still have a chance to hear him. But in the meantime, we have a more than adequate replacement.Matt Hettwer is an international award-winning trombonist and a staple of the Willamette Valley jazz/freelance scene as well as a multi-instrumentalist specializing in trombone and bass trumpet. In 2015 Matt won the International Trombone Association Carl Fontana competition in Valencia, Spain, earning him a spot among his fellow rising stars on the instrument.
You'll have two chances to hear him play with my trio, first on Saturday at J Bell Cellars
, then again on Sunday at my house concert
. We look forward to sharing our music with you.
