When: Sat., July 22, 8-9:45 p.m. 2017
The Leaving Suite, a modern jazz art-song cycle contemplating coming of age and letting go of childhood. Love and fear, doubts and dreams, vividness and isolation — these opposites collide and blend in 18yo songwriter Joshua Tazman's music, a lushly textured, mysterious, and often surprising blend of jazz and pop. Tazman moves from disjointed, funky grooves to bittersweet ballads, capturing the unsureness and vulnerability of becoming an adult with the insightful sophistication of an old soul. Original and moving, this music will resonate with anyone both reaching for their dreams and fearing what they’ll find. Doors 7:30. Show 8:00.
