Summer Sundays in the Garden

Free concert at Allen Centennial Gardens. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating (lawn chairs, blankets, etc)
Dr. Johannes Wallmann, Director of Jazz Studies at UW-Madison, leads a quartet of top-notch artists to offer up high-energy, imaginative, and infectious original compositions. Wallmann’s 2015 quintet album, The Town Musicians, was named an Editors’ Pick by DownBeat Magazine, which called it a “stunning collage of jazz styles,” and the UK’s Jazz Journal wrote, “If I were responsible for an album as good as this, I’d be shouting about it.” In 2018, Wallmann is releasing a new album,Love Wins, which the Isthmus has called “uplifting, moving,” and “a triumphant melding of genres.”
Tony Barba, tenor saxophone; Johannes Wallmann, piano; John Christensen, bass; Matt Endres, drums
