The Jonathan Rowden Jazz Trio at Saddleback College

Posted by CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita,  CA--On Monday, September 14th at 7:30 p.m., The Saddleback College Jazz Studies will be hosting the Jonathan Rowden Trio performing its paradoxic music that sounds as ancient as it does futuristic. This innovative concert features Rowden on saxophones and electronics, and Chris Wabich and James Yoshizawa on drums. With a myriad of world percussion instruments, the trio abandons all semblance of traditional harmonic and rhythmic orchestration, and journeys into the unknown together for a special performance at Saddleback College’s McKinney Theatre.

Tickets are $10 general; $7 students/seniors (presale only). Tickets may be purchased by calling 949-582-4656 (Tuesday through Friday, noon-4:00 p.m.) or online at
