Though often overlooked, the bass line in jazz is one of the most important components of a smooth and engaging sound. Occupying a place between rhythm and melody, bass is the glue that makes the band stick together. Friday, September 1, the Ziad Jazz Quartet pays tribute to these legends of the low end with Great Jazz Bassists.
Some of the most iconic names in jazz bass history will be honored at the show. Classics from players such as Ron Carter (“Eighty One”), Same Jones (“Seven Minds”), Steve Swallow (“Falling Grace”), and Paul Chambers (“Chambermate”) will light up the Jazz at the Bechtler stage.
Concerts are performed at 6 and 8:15 p.m. with no intermissions. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. concert and 7:45 p.m. for the 8:15 p.m. concert. General seating is first come, first served. Enjoy light bites and a cash-only bar. Standing room only is available after all seats are claimed.
