If there were ever a concert not to miss, this is it! Chuck Isreals is bringing his amazing group to the LooseWig house concert series on February 23rd!
The Chuck Israels Nextet with Charlie Porter, Tim Willcox, John Moak, Aaron Diehl and New York drummer, Jimmy Madison, will be playing at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola in early March. This will be a preview performance with Dan Gaynor in the piano chair. The performance is possible because of a gap in a touring schedule (with soprano, Joyce DiDonato) for Chuck, Charlie and Jimmy during which they'll be in Portland for three days.
Signature qualities of the group’s music include a balance between detailed ensembles and spontaneous solos, Chuck’s new compositions and carefully crafted arrangements, and the attention to programming variety typical of Chuck’s performances. Jessica Israels will join the group for the two vocalese pieces she’ll sing in New York.
