Appreciate Jazz at Library

Appreciate Jazz at Library

 

A free concert will be held in special celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month on Sunday, April 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Alameda Main Library, 1550 Oak St. The concert will showcase the talents of the Dave Rocha Trio. Rocha has performed with his jazz group for more than 20 years. In addition to his trumpet expertise, Rocha is also an accomplished flugelhorn player. This instrument is similar to the trumpet, but has a larger bell, which gives it a darker, mellower sound.

His band plays an eclectic mix of jazz standards, pop tunes and original compositions. The concert will cover a wide variety of styles including up-tempo bebop, modal tunes, swing and blues, Latin jazz, ballads and jazz waltz. 

The concert is free and open to everyone. The event is made possible by the Friends of Alameda Free Library. No registration is necessary.
