The Michelle Medler Quartet
Bento Hanto Jazz Series – Summer Concert in the McTavish Room
"A summer jazz dance with a hot young quartet. Let's dance!"
Saturday, August 1st will be an evening of hot, funky jazz from seven till 9:3ish pm featuring one of the hottest young Portland groups, “The Michelle Medler Quartet”.
It's been said of the group,"The Michelle Medler Quartet plays funky, modern jazz sounds, deeply rooted in swing tradition, laced with interesting harmony. A mixture of Jazz, Latin and Funk standards and Michelle's original tunes. A fun, interactive group of top-call musicians, passionate about what they do. Michelle fronts the band on saxophones, flute and vocals." and "Michelle Medler is a thoughtful, creative multi-instrumentalist and composer. Her saxophone sound is rich and full of attitude! She plays flute with fierce intensity in addition to her swinging clarinet playing and singing."
Joining Michelle in the band will be Brian Ward on Keyboards, Ben Medler on bass and Edwin Coleman III on drums. It should be a fun evening of great music and dancing. The quartet can be heard on their 2006 Shoo-wah Records album, "Balance"
