Indigo Jazz takes on rhythm of guest drummer

The masterful polyrhythms of guest drummer Aaron Amar will kick Indigo Jazz into a new gear

The masterful polyrhythms of guest drummer Aaron Amar will kick Indigo Jazz into a new gear when it returns to the Crofton Hotel Pub on Sunday, April. 17.

The Comox quartet offers such fresh arrangements as an Afro-Cuban take on Joni Mitchell’s ‘Carey’, a hot samba feel for jazz standard ‘Old Devil Moon’ and a sexy, swinging version of ‘The Surrey with the Fringe on Top’, vocalist Dale Graham says.

Joining Graham, guitarist Rick Husband and bassist John Hyde, Amar adds rhythmic intrigue and complexity to a repertoire know for its elegantly delivered melodies. Sunday’s performance will include selections from two of Husband’s guitar gods — Pat Metheny and Wes Montgomery.

The performance is part of the Jazz at Crofton series, which runs at the pub from 2-5 p.m. each Sunday. Musicians are invited join in a jam session during the last hour. The pub is at 1534 Joan Ave.

Admission is $10. For information, call 250-324-2245 or visit croftonhotel.ca.
