The Jazz Bridge “Jazz in the Sanctuary,” Second Wednesdays Concert Series in Center City presents guitarist Jason Klinke and his trio at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion, 2110 Chestnut Street on Wednesday, December 10. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. One show starts at 7:30. Information: 215-517-8337

Guitarist Jason Klinke, a graduate of Temple University’s Esther Boyer College of Music, is indicative of today’s new wave of players who embrace the spirit of the jazz tradition, but apply that tradition to contemporary musical forms, harmonies and rhythms. Klinke has appeared all over the region, often with vocalist Rhenda Fearrington (he plays on Fearrington’s fine CD, “This Moment’s Sweetness”), saxophonist Victor North’s “Three Blind Mice,” with vocalist Najwa Parkins “After Hours Trio,” and the “Tap Room Trio.” His recent duo collaborations with composer/guitarist Steve Giordano explore the interactive possibilities of new original music and time honored standards. And, as a member of the “Oscuro Quintet,” Klinke has been focusing in on traditional Tango and Tango Nuevo, with an emphasis on the music of Astor Piazzolla.

Jazz Bridge, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to assisting Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis, sponsors these neighborhood concerts throughout the region to keep the sound of Philadelphia alive.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
