John Jorgenson Quintet
with Loralyn Coles opening

The John Jorgenson Quintet's IMT debut in 2006 was the surprise hit of the season! The audience was amazed and charmed by his dazzling guitar work as well as his mastery as a clarinetist and vocalist. Whether playing his own accessible compositions or classic standards, John and his band make music that is equally romantic and joyous, played with virtuosity and soul. Jorgenson, a 6 year member of Elton John's band, has been approached by artists ranging from Barbra Streisand to Earl Scruggs for his guitar work. Recently, he was chosen to portray Django Reinhardt in the feature film “Head in the Clouds”. Jorgenson's latest CD Franco-American Swing, on J2/FGM Records, is full of infectious gypsy jazz music. His quintet includes Buenos Aires native Gonzalo Bergara on rhythm guitar, bassist Charlie Chadwick, Stephan Dudash, who plays guitar, bass, congas and mandolin in addition to the 5-string viola and percussionist Cesare Valbusa, who hails from Italy. The first concert was well attended. We expect this one to be packed. Don't miss it!

Whether it’s an Irish ballad that sounds like it was written centuries ago, a folk song with a jazzy feel, or a country song that Patsy Cline might have sung, Loralyn’s clear soprano and evocative songwriting can transport you to other places, other times. Accompanied by Robert Spates on violin, Nick Smiley on bass and Jean Bayou on keyboards, Loralyn’s evocative songs acquire dramatic layerings around her sweet voice, guitar, mandolin and bodhrán playing as can be heard on her new release, Blue Moonlight.
