THE 2017 DHS JAZZ INVITATIONAL FEATURING TRUMPETER TOM PERON

 

Davis High School Music Department Presents

THE 2017 DHS JAZZ INVITATIONAL

FEATURING TRUMPETER TOM PERON

 

THURSDAY, APRIL 13 AT THE BRUNELLE THEATER, 7:30PM

 

The award-winning DHS Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Thomas Slabaugh II, will present a concert featuring music by Grammy award winner Maria Schneider, Bill Holman, Benny Carter, Radiohead, and Lester Young.

 

The ensemble will also showcase our award-winning combos in performance on music by jazz icons Thelonious Monk, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, "Dizzy" Gillespie, Luiz Bonfá, and Clifford Brown.

 

The concert will conclude with guest artist Tom Peron featured on “Bye Bye Blackbird” (in the style made famous by Miles Davis) and “Perdido”, as made famous by Duke Ellington’s band.

 

Teacher and performer Tom Peron has a very successful career, performing with the great pianist Jessica Williams in the 1980’s before forming another successful group with San Francisco drummer Bud Spangler. Since the early 1980’s, Tom Peron and his groups have performed for audiences at the Monterey Jazz Festival, KRML's Jazz Store in Carmel, Yoshi's, Pearl's, Heart & Soul, and the Museum of Modern Art, all in San Francisco. In addition to his busy performance schedule, Tom Peron also teaches at Watermelon Music in Davis and at the University of the Pacific.

 

Phil Elwood, music critic for the San Francisco Examiner, has written, "As for trumpeter/composer Peron, one is encouraged to say, 'just listen,' and move on - astonished at his playing, versatility, imagination and technical facility. Master of his horn, with 'good ears,' as Lester Young would have said, Peron has created his own style, his own sound, out of jazz roots. Very few trumpeters out there are Peron's equal, let alone his better,"
