A fusion of the arts, “Jazz Canvas” is a two-hour performance that combines jazz music and a painter who begins and ends a large work of art in response to the music. In the best of jazz traditions, Jazz Canvas is spontaneous, unique and entertaining. The artwork will be raffled off at the end of the show to one of the audience members.
Local vocalist Greta Matassa, four-time winner of Earshot’s Jazz vocalist of the year performs with Alexey Nikolaev on tenor sax, Terry Marsh on percussion, Tracie Marsh on bass and Josh Mason on keyboards. During the performance Poulsbo artist Leigh Knowles Metteer will work on a large canvas in response to the music.
