Arioso and the Jazz Guise

Yesterday I received an early birthday gift – a pair of tickets to attend a concert. So I called up a friend and we went. It was a great evening out. And it is good to have friends whose taste in music extends beyond Country (like my dear husband – I blame it on his being a-tonal)

Arioso is a local trio of women who sing a variety of light music – including jazz. They have voices that blend nicely and obviously enjoy singing together.

The Jazz Guise is a quartet – piano, bass guitar, upright bass and drums. They are very good and I would certainly go hear them again. I like their style and Mike has a good jazz voice. Our city actually has an amazing amount of talent and there is good stuff happening here in the arts and music. I wish we had a venue that offered jazz – maybe a nice coffee house or restaurant or pub. I wonder if we are large enough to sustain such a venture?

The purpose of the evening was to raise money for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers organization who will send monies raised on to the Steven Lewis Foundation. A good cause. It’s an organization that has sort of captured my interest since I heard Steven Lewis speak last year. Maybe something I will join if I have more time in the next few years.

  1. That sounds like a good night (especially the kind of stuff Sharon said Arioso did). Who is in that trio, by the way? I really would like to get involved in some sort of quality music here in town (besides our amazing church team…). But I just don’t know where to look. I’ve been subtly trying to get into “For the Love of Music” for a few years now.

    I think there is sort of an artsy music crowd in this city and if you know these people you will find ways to connect. A lot of them connect through the musical productions. I know some of them through the orchestra and through previous work stuff. Linda Jensen is one of the strong organizers. Karen Langlois is pretty knowledgeable about who might be interested in singing.
