CCAE plans to “Swing it up” for final Jazz Jam Sessions

Zzymzzy Sextet will play the last Friday of August —the 31st.

Join the California Center for the Arts, Escondido on the last Friday of August for the finale of Jazz Jam Sessions music series!  In lieu of “the jam,” they will have swing dancing with the Zzymzzy Sextet.  Enjoy live music and dancing under the stars or just watch while you enjoy food and drinks from the food truck market and cash bar.

The guys from the Zzymzzy Sextet have simple ambitions: they just want to play it like it was when it was unamplified, melodic, swinging, dreamy, full of sly surprise.

From the Prohibition through the Second Big War, the glory days of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington are being recaptured humbly and with humor in San Diego by four musicians who know “it don’t mean a thing without that swing.”

Zzymzzy Sextet brings Beston Barnett on guitar and vocals, Matt Gill on clarinet, Paul Hormick on upright bass, and Pete Miesner on guitar and lead vocals.  The usual four will be accompanied by a drummer and a trombonist to really bring up the energy in this swing dance session!
