Duo explores jazz with piano and mandolin
Tom Cleary and Jamie Masefield will present an intimate evening of piano and mandolin jazz at the Walkover Gallery in Bristol on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 8 p.m.
These two longtime Burlington-based jazz musicians will take the piano and mandolin to a diverse field of musical settings. They’ll play tunes from classical composer Samuel Barber to jazz heroes like Horace Silver and Ralph Towner, and then to more pastoral landscapes as well as originals.
Pianist Cleary teaches in the University of Vermont and FlynnArts jazz programs. The Essex Junction resident has accompanied artists including Clark Terry and Joe Lovano, and has had long-term collaborations with Mike Gordon and James Harvey.
Mandolinist Masefield, from Monkton, is known for his ground breaking group The Jazz Mandolin Project, and has performed with Bela Fleck, David Grisman, Marc Ribot and Bob Weir.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 day of the show. Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling the Walkover Gallery at (802) 453-3188 ext 2 or emailing [email protected].
