Jazz a la Brass Quintet in Rome!

A new recording by our friend Jim Martinez

Jim has recorded a new piece entitled "Your Name." Brandon Muchow is doing the vocal, and it's a great jazz version of a popular Christian song.  Enjoy! (and don't forget to turn off the mixpod before you listen)

Incidentally, we're working on getting Jim and Laura Didier back with us for the Jazz at the Church Concerts, maybe for a Jazz Concert and Jam Session AND the Doris Day Tribute concert... hopefully very soon!  That would be a great weekend, eh?

Sedona Jazz at the Church Update

What a great event last Sunday! Here are some pictures from the concert, which was filled with gifted musicians -  The trio of Steve Sandner, Denny Garr and Floyd Roberson, who were joined by sit-ins Lou Turano, Harley Gittleman, Vismayah, the Church Gardener and our dear friend and gifted Vicki McDermitt!

The next Jazz at the Church Concert and Jam Session will take place on Thanksgiving Day Weekend.  Specifically, from 1-3 pm, after the 10 am Morning Mass.  We’ll be having a special fellowship hour after the mass, with scrumptuous goodies AND time to be with one another socially.  

The church will be readied and the Jazz will begin anew, with November's version of the Steve Sandner Trio (Steve Sandner and Piano, Steve Douglas on Bass and Floyd Roberson on Drums) headlining the afternoon.  Sounds fabulous, doesn’t it!  

This will be the second concert with “Jam Session” attached to it, and if it’s half as good as the last one, it’ll be MORE than a smashing success!  So mark you calendars now, and bring those folk with you whom you know don’t have a spiritual home, and/or love Jazz!!

Sedona Jazz at the Church is Fast Approaching...

Jazz Concert Poster

Our Jazz Concerts begin in less than two weeks, with a concert the weekend of Sedona Jazz on the Rocks festival.  (Saturday, October 2).

Our gathering is the following afternoon - Sunday - with Soundscape Sedona Trio entertaining us.

  The trio consists of Susannah Martin, Vocals, our own jazz master AND church organist Steve Sandner on piano, and Steve Douglas on bass.

We've made a promotional flyer/poster (above) for the concert, which will be distributed hither and yon throughout Sedona and surrounding communities.  

If you would like some of the flyers to give to your friends, you can pick them up at the Church any day ('cept Saturdays), as they are on the Votive Candle stand table at the back of the Church.  (And if you want more information on the concerts, click the headline above!)

Help us help others find out about our parish church... the jazz, the holiness and the stunning beauty of both the courtyard setting and the building itself.  Bring them to one or both of the October concerts, and ask them to come to mass with you on Sundays... You - and they! - will be glad you did!

We've expanded Jazz for October!

We've added another jazz concert at the church for October, so now we have two concerts - the first on October 3 (the weekend of "Sedona Jazz on the Rocks") and the second on October 17, our Patronal Feast weekend!

Both are at 3 o'clock in the afternoon on their particular Sunday.  For more information, click on the headline above, and be sure to make plans to attend...  mark your calendar now so as not to miss these great afternoons of Jazz in the prettiest venue imaginable!

We hope the two concerts will be the beginning of another great year of Jazz at the Church, and the price can't be beat anywhere in town - it's FREE!
