7pm :: Jon Wirtz Presents "Impermanence" :: $10 adv / $12 door
featuring: jon wirtz - piano jon powers - drums
Since arriving on the Denver scene in 2003, Jon Wirtz has since performed for millions of people both locally and nationally. Over the past 10 years he has performed mainly as a sideman, having worked with Grammy winning producers Malcolm Burn and John Macy. He's also shared the stage with artists including Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Robbie Krieger (The Doors), Melissa Etheridge, Joe Bonner, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Matt Morris, Charlie Sexton and even Justin Timberlake. In addition to performing with Matt Morris on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” Wirtz has appeared on “CBS Early Morning Show,” “Ellen” (the Ellen DeGeneres Show), and “Lopez Tonight” (George Lopez). In April of 2013, Wirtz released his second full length record, Tourist . The album received an overwhelmingly great response, drawing comparisons to Brad Mehldau, Keith Jarrett, Robert Glasper, Aaron Parks, Miles Davis, and a whole slew of jazz greats of the past and present; yet it was still heralded as unique and original for its “incredible freshness,” “genius,” “massively vast range, virtuoso phrasing and impeccable taste.”
On Thu, February 13 Wirtz will again push the boundaries by presenting "Impermanence"-- a duo performance consisting of 100% improvisation. He will be joined by drummer Jon Powers, whose resume also includes working with Ron Miles, Justin Timberlake, Flobots, Charlie Sexton, the Longmont Symphony Orchestra, as well as appearances on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Ellen," "Lopez Tonight," and the "Hope For Haiti Telethon."
The duo will be accompanied by the visual brilliance of artists Sara Mae and John Defeo. These incredible artists will be adding their own creativity to the mix with improvised paintings during the set.
Live art--visual and audio--in real time, never to be recreated again.
