Fremont Center For The Arts presents FluteDaddy and The Freebird Trio in a concert of avant garde jazz.
Earlier this month we debuted our new jazz trio, Freebird , at Lofty’s in Colorado Springs and we have never had so much fun! Freebird, featuring Lee Gardner on bass, Dick Cunico on drums and FluteDaddy on flutes creates new music in real time. We use a jazz standard, pop tune or original composition as a canvas for improvisational dialogue between the instruments.
At our Lofty’s gig our rendition of Adele’s Rolling In The Deep was highly appreciated by everyone, but they didn’t see it coming. The powerful melody came wrapped in a bit of chaos that expressed the emotions of “could have had it all.” Of course, it didn’t hurt to have presented an arrangement of a song that won a Grammy later that same week. At the Fremont concert we will again do Rolling In The Deep as well as our favs and we’ll introduce several new arrangements of jazz originals.
What will we create? We won’t really know ’til it happens but you can come on down to Canon City and be there when it does. If you can’t be there , please pass the info along. We’ll keep you in the loop on our next concerts.
