Spokane Jazz Orchestra feat. Brent Edstrom

When: Sat., March 8, 8 p.m. 2014

You have to love all the artistic treasures lurking below the surface here in the Inland Northwest. One of them is Brent Edstrom, a masterful jazz pianist who’s earned a reputation as one of the finest ivory-ticklers in the region. This weekend at the Bing Crosby Theater, Edstrom’s trio (featuring bassist Eugene Jablonsky and drummer Rick Westrick) teams up with the big-bang power of the Spokane Jazz Orchestra to perform his latest original composition, entitled “Gumbo.” Edstrom and company also plan to hammer out some classics from jazz piano greats like Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson and Marian McPartland.
