CMC JaZz Project presents ‘Cure for the Winter Blues Concert’ Friday and Saturday


This Friday and Saturday evenings The CMC JaZz Project will be presenting a “Cure for the Winter Blues Concert” in Chaffee County. This is actually a rescheduled and reworked version of their annual Winter Concert which was canceled due to severe winter weather conditions. Selections for the concert will include music from the Count Basie library, traditional New Orleans style, foot-tappin’ funk and tunes by current masters like Gordon Goodwin. Highlighting this concert will be a very special tribute to jazz legend Stan Kenton and his band featuring music performed by the Kenton Orchestras from the ’30s through the ’70s. The ensemble will also debut a new original work written for the CMC JaZz PROJECT by local composer/arranger Bill Murphy. This concert is free and open to the public. The first performance will be held on Friday at 7 p.m. in the United Methodist Church located at 4th & D streets in Salida. The second show will be held on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Valley Fellowship Church located at 608 South San Juan in Buena Vista.
