San Diego Sound Project: Chaz Cabrera
Music educator, composer, arranger, and jazz saxophonist Chaz Cabrera prepares a special evening of music featuring selected jazz repertoire and original compositions. The original compositions include “Nova,” a contemporary jazz piece that explores lush chords and a simple melody; “A Touch of Silver,” an homage to Cabrera’s favorite composer Horace Silver; and “On Dusk Drive,” a tune that takes listeners back to the street where Cabrera’s musical career began. Cabrera will also choose various selections from the composers who most influenced him, such as Horace Silver, Bobby Timmons, and more. This program features a jazz quartet with Nakul Tiruviluamala (piano), John Murray (bass), David Sullivan (drums), and Chaz Cabrera (saxophone).
