The Low Notes will grace the Rotunda with their tunes during An Afternoon of Jazz at the Morris Graves Museum of Art, Sunday, August 21st, from 3:00-5:00 pm. The Low Notes arrived on the Humboldt County music scene during the summer of 2015, but its members have been around for the last quarter century creating music locally in a variety of bands. The band features Doug Mortenson on guitar, Rick DeVol on bass, Douglas Kamprath on drums, and Dave Ryan on vocals/keyboard.
Along with a handful of originals, The Low Notes' journey down the road of jazz standards, 70’s fusion, and an occasional rock/pop number metamorphosed into something unpredictable; you might hear “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" (Traffic) or “Dreams” (Allman Brothers) followed by Chick Corea’s “Spain” or Miles Davis’ “So What”.
Low Notes fans typically smile their way through the foot-tapping tunes and the sometimes quirky mix of genres, but always dig the jazz bubbling beneath the surface. The Low Notes can be seen playing for appreciative and tuned-in audiences at local brew pubs, farmer’s markets, and other popular outdoor happenings.
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 The Low Notes on Sunday, August 21st at 3:00pm!
