Duets Plus!

In duos, trios, and quartets, this unique program celebrates the intimacy of collaboration among four players who seek the unexplainable beauty found in spontaneous improvisation on favorite songs.

Improvising with a duo partner can allow an idea to become something neither one expected beforehand. Combining duets into a small-group orchestration sparks another kind of musical joy.

This evening, trombonist Mark Patterson brings together Dale Bruning, master in many senses (of guitar, melody, rhythm, accompanying, teaching); Scott Robinson, a dazzling saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist who takes listeners to outer space and back; and Mark Simon, bassist who amazes with both solidity and flexibility as the moment calls.

A great new view on the unique mind of Dale Bruning! This evening continues Dazzle’s celebration of Dale’s musicianship and influence on our whole world: Patterson’s teacher (prior to several recordings together), and Simon’s longtime cohort. It is exciting to bring together Scott (from New York) and Dale, two creative stars who burn brightly–in separate solar systems before now.
