Jazz at the Lobero announces Fall 2016 Series: Celebrating the Guitar. Dedicated to the art of jazz guitar, this event features top guitarists in the music world today.
First, enjoy An Evening with Pat Metheny on September 14 as he shows off his skills with a new internationally based band behind him. Metheny was recently inducted into the Downbeat hall of fame and commissioned a work for Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, who presents his new work on October 28 along with music from Anotnio Carlos Jobim, Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
Last but not least, Charles Lloyd returns to the Lobero with his new group The Marvels on November 28. Lloyd was majorly successful in 2015 as he became an NEA JazzMaster and released two albums, Wild Man Dance and I Long To See You.
Once again, DownBeat Magazine recognizes Lobero Theatre in their 2016 guide to Great Jazz Venues. This is the Lobero’s sixth year on this prestigious list, including Blue Note, Preservation Jazz Hall and Yoshi’s.
