A full evening jazz work composed by Claude Bolling and Maurice Andre.
Second Stage Amherst
194 2nd Street
(corner of 2nd & Washington)
The Amherst Glebe Arts Response (AGAR) Second Stage Amherst will present the jazz quartet of Chris Magee - trumpet, Dana Ballard - piano, Ed Mikenas - bass, and Larry Scott – drums, playing the French jazz classic "Toot Suite" at Second Stage Amherst
Chris Magee will lead the group in the virtuoso trumpet work, a full evening piece in six parts. Chris Magee points out that "Toot Suite" is so demanding for the trumpet player that he must have at least a day in between performances to recover. Dana Ballard is a pianist who also works as an accompanist at Lynchburg College. Ed Mikenas and Larry Scott are well-known jazz players in the Greater Lynchburg area. The group performed "Toot Suite" last year at Lynchburg College and Chris Magee says, "We were very happy to have AGAR give us more opportunities to play the piece. This is such a fun work, and audiences love it!"
