Karl Evangelista's Taglish @ Bird and Beckett Books, SF CA

Bird and Beckett Books- 653 Chenery St, San Francisco, CA 94131

Filipino American composer and improviser Karl Evangelista is joined by a slew of Bay Area jazz stalwarts to present Taglish, a musical journey through 21st century immigrant culture. The project synthesizes jazz, American song, 20th century experimentalism, and Filipino folk melody into a sound that is at once universal and starkly personal. This will be the first presentation of the suite since 2014.

Rob Ewing: trombone
