Sultry night of jazz offered Friday in Sequim

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — Five seasoned jazzmen will offer a night of music by Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane, to culminate in a performance of Miles Davis’ landmark suite “Kind of Blue,” at 7 p.m. Friday.

The concert will be at the Dungeness Schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road.

Admission is a suggested $10 donation at the door, while students and children get in free.

Saxophonist Craig Buhler, drummer Terry Smith, bassist Taylor Ackley and guitarist Chuck Easton — all local musicians — will join Brian Atkinson, a professional vibraphonist from Los Angeles, for the concert.

Along with the straight-ahead jazz, the players will venture into the classics, with jazz arrangements of works by Frederic Chopin and Gabriel Faure on the program, too.

Friday’s show is hosted by the Peninsula Friends of Music Performance, a group formed last year to promote live, professional-quality art music, Buhler noted.

The Friends seek to give local residents “exceptional music in an intimate environment,” he said, while giving musicians across the region an outlet for their art.
