Come visit the Morris Graves Museum of Art for an afternoon of great music on Sunday, January 16th at 3:00pm. Enjoy An Afternoon of Jazz with Gil Cline & the Midnight Jazz-tet, and hear jazz from talented local musicians performing music with a classic trumpet & flugelhorn jazz quartet lineup. The set will include a careful selection of classics from the American songbook, with the 2nd set being Gil’s own Midnight Jazz-tet classics.

Gil Cline plays the flugelhorn…

Gil Cline’s Midnight Jazz-tet consists of Gil Cline playing the trumpet & flugelhorn, Brian Post on the piano, Danny Gaon on bass, and Mike LaBolle on the drums. All four musicians for this Afternoon of Jazz are faculty, former faculty, or former students of the comprehensive and active jazz program at Humboldt State University. Gil Cline first fell in love with jazz, and also the Flügelhorn, while playing in excellent jazz bands while in high schools in Sonoma and Fortuna. His main jazz horn remains a trusty silver 4-valve flugel (made by Getzen) now so uniquely customized that he calls it his “Flugilhorn,” based on a nickname picked up while in college — due to his devotion to that darker toned cousin of the trumpet.

Things are sure to get festive as the tunes begin to flow at the Morris Graves Museum’s monthly event, An Afternoon of Jazz, with Gil Cline & the Midnight Jazz-tet on Sunday, January 16th at 3:00pm! Don’t miss out on this “full-course meal of Jazz!”
