Telluride Summer Jazz Series: Invisible Bird Trio
Palm Arts has partnered with the Telluride Society for Jazz to present the inaugural Telluride Summer Jazz Series at the Palm Arts Theatre Complex in Telluride, Colorado. Performances showcasing some of the finest Jazz artists in the country are planned for June, July, and August at the intimate Bob Saunders and Michael D. Palm Theatres. The inaugural series performances kick off June 15th and 16th with performances and a jazz master class by world renowned percussionist and band leader Scott Amendola at the helm of the multi talented Invisible Bird Trio. Amendola is an ambitious composer, savvy bandleader and capriciously creative foil for some of the world’s most inventive musicians, Amendola applies his rhythmic virtuosity to a vast array of settings. His closest musical associates include guitarists, Nels Cline, Jeff Parker, Charlie Hunter, Hammond B-3 organist Wil Blades, violinists Regina Carter and Jenny Scheinman, clarinetist Ben Goldberg, players who have each forged a singular path within and beyond the realm of jazz. Amendola has enlisted the talents of two of Colorado’s greatest virtusio musicians Dave Devine and Shane Endsley.
