A Night of Jazz Magic at “In Between The Notes” Special Jazz Event
Join us on Monday, October 23 at UC San Diego Park & Market for the “In Between the Notes” Special Jazz Event! It will be an extraordinary evening of celebrating the magic of jazz in the venue’s first-floor Guggenheim Theatre with an ensemble of all-female artists. This event takes inspiration from Senses Human Bistro’s weekly series “Between The Notes.”
The “In Between The Notes” Special Jazz Event is not just any ordinary jazz concert; it’s a gathering of exceptional female jazz artists, many with San Diego roots, who are ready to sweep you off your feet. With a lineup that boasts incredible vocalists like Allison Adams Tucker, Lorraine Hussey, and Whitney Shay, accompanied by a stellar ensemble of instrumentalists, including Melonie Grinnell on piano, Evona Wascinski on bass, Laurel Grinnell on drums, Lori Bell on flute, Jamie Shadowlight on violin, and Monette Marino on percussion, this event promises to be nothing short of spectacular.
The event will start with a welcome reception from 5-6 p.m. featuring delectable appetizers from Senses Human Bistro where guests will be treated to the harmonious blend of Amanda Portela’s amazing vocals and the dynamic piano stylings of Irving Flores. At 6 p.m. the “In Between the Notes” Special Jazz Event begins in the Guggenheim Theatre. The performance concludes at 7:30 p.m. at which time a meet and greet with the performers will commence at Senses Human Bistro, located on the first floor of the Park & Market building.
Meet Event Curator Irving Flores
Behind the scenes, the event’s curator Irving Flores shines as a luminary in the world of jazz. His dedication to the art form and his vision for this event have brought together an awe-inspiring ensemble of talent. Irving Flores isn’t just a pianist; he’s a bridge between emerging artists and the grand stage, and his passion shines through in every note and melody.
“I feel a deep sense of gratitude to San Diego, my second home, for embracing me and my love for jazz,” says Flores. “Curating and directing ‘In Between the Notes’ is an honor, allowing me to explore and celebrate the richness of feminine musical expression and strengthen bonds with my fellow musicians who have been my musical sisters these past two decades. It’s more than a showcase; it’s a shared symphony of inspiration and connection, a celebration of vibrant feminine energy that I hope will resonate with and inspire all who experience it.”
