Pioneer Valley Jazz Shares presents
William Hooker Trio with Hans Tammen & Adam Lane
Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center, Greenfield
Friday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
Pioneer Valley Jazz Shares is a shareholder-based organization bringing extraordinary jazz concerts to our region. William Hooker has created works that range from jazz and “new” music to experimental genres, and has released over 70 CDs as a leader. Hans Tammen calls his style of performance “endangered guitar,” because of the extreme alterations he enacts upon his instrument’s sound and construction. By combining a disparate set of influences into a unique improvisational voice, Adam Lane has become recognized as one of the most original creative voices in contemporary jazz.
