Bonhams Auction House, The Jam Session, and Southampton Art Center invite you to a very special night of ART and JAZZ with an extraordinary addition to the LIVE from SAC concert series. A reception for all attendees will be held prior to the concert to allow viewing of Bonhams collection pieces and to meet their representatives.
At the Reception and throughout the evening Bonhams will preview several of its coming Art Auctions with pieces from its collections on display, adding to this memorable night of Art and Music.
The concert features Latin jazz pianist Hector Martignon and world-renowned jazz trumpeter Randy Brecker, along with a line-up of incredible musicians to round out the band for this One-Night-Only collaboration. New York based, Colombian born Hector Martignon has composed, orchestrated, produced, performed and recorded music in a wide spectrum of genres, from Classical and Crossover, to Jazz and World Music, to Rock and Pop. His five albums as a leader, two as co-leader (Mozart’s Blue Fantasies and Bach’s Secret Files) as well as his work on over a hundred albums, scores for five feature films, three Broadway musicals, and multiple other projects, showcase his wide-ranging area of expertise.
Jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker has helped shape the sound of Jazz, R&B, and Rock for more than four decades. His trumpet and flugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists including James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Parliament/Funkadelic, Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius, Frank Zappa, and more.
This very special event will be recorded for rebroadcast on local NPR Member station WPPB by recording engineer and Jam Session Radio Hour Host George Howard. Additional musicians to be announced.
