Point Richmond Jazz presents Kit Eakle's DjangoSphere
DjangoSphere is a project, led by Point Richmond jazz violinist Kit Eakle, in tribute to Thelonious Sphere Monk, and "Django" Jean Reinhardt.
Django and Monk are perhaps the most individual and original voices in mid-20th century Jazz. Kit Eakle's first incarnation of this group recorded DjangoSphere in 2014 with Mark Holzinger, guitar, Alex Baum, bass, and John Waller, percussion. For this concert the amazing young 'cellist, Lewis Patzner, AND Gypsy Jazz bassist extrordinaire, Simon Planting will join the the group covering the bass end.
DjangoSphere plays from the repetoire of both Django and Monk and also includes originals by all band members in the spirit of those two great and original Masters.
Violinist Eakle currently is the artistic director Point Richmond Jazz.
DjangoSphere had hopes to record a live CD at this concert. Unfortunately our technicians are unable to gather the needed resources the day after Thanksgiving...
WE WILL record another date early in the New Year and TO DO SO we NEED YOUR HELP to contribute to our KICKSTARTER Campaign
