Saxophonist Eric Marienthal will join forces with St. Louis' Bach to the Future for a performance at 7:00 p.m. Friday, March 29 at the Sheldon Concert Hall.

Organized by Bach to the Future keyboardist Mike Silverman, the “Autumn Hill Jazz Festival," as the show is being billed, also will feature singer/trumpeter Dawn Weber's trio and pianist Ptah Williams. (Autumn Hill is the label name used by Silverman and BTTF to release their recordings.)

Marienthal is a Berklee graduate who first gained international fame playing with Chick Corea's Elektrik Band. In addition to working as a leader, he also currently performs and records with fusion band The Rippingtons and with Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. Marienthal has been in St. Louis a couple of times in recent years, in October 2011 playing with keyboardist Jeff Lorber, and in May 2008 subbing for Bob Mintzer with Yellowjackets, both at Jazz at the Bistro. He was recruited last year by Silverman to do some recording with Bach to the Future for an upcoming project of theirs, which led to this live appearance.

Proceeds from the Autumn Hill Jazz Festival concert will go to benefit Music for Lifelong Achievement, the not-for-profit organization based at the Sheldon that collects and refurbishes used musical instruments and gives them to financially disadvantaged local music students. Tickets are $15 general admission, and are on sale now via Metrotix.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
