Free and open to the public.
The seventh annual edition of JazzPOP, the Hammer’s creative jazz series, returns to the courtyard this September, featuring trailblazing West Coast bandleaders/composers and their collaborators from Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago.
Vinny Golia, long a hero of Southern California's improvised music scene, has turned up the volume with his latest group, a powerhouse sextet of former students that grooves with explosive energy. The musicians artfully inhabit Golia's witty, irreverent, eclectic compositional world, where shredding guitar solos take their place alongside intricately layered horn lines and collective jazz escapades.
Vinny Golia, woodwinds Gavin Templeton, alto saxophone Dan Rosenboom, trumpet Alex Noice, guitar Jon Armstrong, electric bass Andrew Lessman, drum.
KJAZZ 88.1 FM is the official media sponsor of the series.
All Hammer public programs are free. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability.
