Saturday, June 2nd, LooseWig features the Ed Bennett Quintet, including Ed Bennett - Bass, Tim Willcox - tenor saxophone, Charlie Porter - trumpet, Dan Gaynor - Piano, and Tim Rap - Drums!
Ed Bennett has long been considered one of the West Coast's premiere string bass players. Since his arrival in 1990, Ed has become a mainstay in the Portland jazz community.
The fresh sounds of Bennett’s original compositions are be-bop influenced, but unique with twists in their harmonic progressions and unusual forms.
The quintet will be playing Ed's original compositions along with works by Horace Silver, Miles Davis, and Kent Glenn!
Please bring something small to share with others (snacks, nuts, wine, etc.). This is a potluck jazz party and concert.
