ONLINE: First Tuesday Music featuring Dan Balmer Trio
Portland jazz-guitar legend and First Tuesday favorite Dan Balmer returns, this time online with a livestreamed performance of jazz standards and original compositions. Dan will be joined by two of Portland's most talented jazz musicians: piano giant George Mitchell and drummer Jason Palmer.
From coffee house gigs at age 15 to chart-topping success with the Tom Grant Band in the 1990s, world tours with two-time Grammy Award winner Diane Schuur and contemporary jam-bands, Dan Balmer brings fire and heart every time he plays the guitar. His playing appears on nearly 100 CDs including twelve as a leader. His original works have appeared internationally in television, film and radio. An in-demand educator, Dan maintains a busy schedule of private lessons, group clinics and master classes throughout the US and abroad. He is the director of jazz combos at Lewis & Clark College while also on faculty at virtually every other college in the greater Portland area. Dan has performed or toured with Joey DeFrancesco, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Les McCann, Javon Jackson and Karrin Allyson, Benny Golson, Jeff Hamilton, Gerald Clayton, John Clayton, Terell Stafford, Ingrid Jensen, Duduka da Fonseca, Kendrick Scott, Taylor Eigsti, Buddy De Franco, Bruce Forman, and countless others.
This concert is made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library. For more information, please call or email librarian Chris Myers at 503-534-5667 / email@example.com,
