Upcoming Gig at The Rothko Chapel in Houston, TX | July 20, 2017

Join us on the Plaza for a blend of jazz and bluegrass music from Jacqui Sutton | Jazzgrass Chic and the Frontier Jazz Orchestra, as they present songs from their first two albums, Billie & Dolly and Notes From the Frontier. Reviewer C. Michael Bailey sums up the group’s sound as, “where jazz meets the American frontier.” Lead vocalist and bandleader Jacqui Sutton will appear with the quartet version of the Frontier Jazz Orchestra, which includes Paul Chester (banjo/guitar), Anthony Sapp (bass), Henry Darragh (keyboard), and Ilya Janos (percussion).

Describing a performance, Jazz Times’ Christopher Loudon writes, “Widening her celebration of American musical spirit … Sutton opens with a ‘Summertime’ that serves as splendid introduction to the steel of her pipes and the majesty of a voice that marries the earthiness of Cassandra Wilson to the warmth of Dianne Reeves. Jazz, bluegrass and honkytonk slip and slide together in Sutton’s crafty blend of ‘Hummingbird’ and Dave Brubeck’s ‘Blue Rondo a la Turk,’ while ‘Nature Boy’ is reinvented as a fiery tango sung in Spanish and English.”

Frontier Jazz | Red Poppy | March 11th

Hello Friends and Those Who Otherwise Put Up With My Music Musings!

You’ve heard at some point over the past month or so about the Frontier Jazz String Trio’s San Francisco debut at the Red Poppy Art House in the Mission. (The formation will be “Orchestra” minus the “orch”—so this will be stripped down to banjo/guitar, cello and bass). I have been working hard to expand our geographic reach and the Red Poppy has given us a wonderful opportunity.

The day is quickly upon us—March 11th, a week from this Friday. I would be grateful for your support, whether that be in the form of coming out to see us if you’re local, or barring that, if you guilt tell your Bay Area friends to come and check us out.

We have a nice event notice from the venue here:

And to convince friends, send them to my SoundCloud account to hear all of our recorded songs, including the original “Grass Dolls”, which we will debut at the concert.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
