SUEZENNE FORDHAM CHAMBER JAZZ LA 11/9/08 CONCERT HUGE SUCCESS
Last night's concert at the South Pasadena Main Library Concert Hall was a huge success, with a very astute audience, including MXMitacek, composer, mentor and friend of SFCJLA.
Compositions included: MXM's 9 for S, written for Suezenne Fordham, Blue in Green of Miles Davis, Mozart Sonata in a minor, So What, Israel, and various Bill Evans tunes... Interspersed was some pretty spacey Improve utilising Tibetan instruments. The audience loved the evening, and the seccond show was devoted to new compositions, their prepping and go-thrus, showing the observers the makings of the head arrangements... Vey rewarding. caaisy Turbin did some great playing on Alto sax, Round Midnight, Rochelle Coatney knocked everyone out when she played drumset, and Charlie Domingo showed just how beautiful his bass cound sound not only Pizzicato, but eleguently BOWING... Fabulous work, Chasman.
I thank you, my beautiful group, 'Love you all...
Your fearless leader, Suezenne
