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.”
