John Gross & Cameron Morgan
February 27, 2014 5:00 PM
Los Angeles native John Gross has been called “one of the jazz world’s most creative voices” (NY Times). A veteran of Shelly Manne and Toshiko Akiyoshi’s bands, John enjoys playing freely with innovators like Cameron, and also with longtime friends like composer Dave Frishberg. For tonight’s program, he and Cameron are working on some Joni Mitchell, Brad Mehldau, and Wayne Shorter tunes plus some original material by both. As always with John, figure it will be beautiful.
Since moving to Portland in 2008, guitarist Cameron Morgan has performed and recorded with Brian Blade, Darrell Grant, Gino Vanelli and the John Gross Trio. His latest project, “19 Foot Trio,” features Adam Gust on drums with Tim Lefebvre on bass.
