Join us in the beautiful Playhouse plaza for another great free outdoor concert series featuring an eclectic array of some of SoCal’s best musical acts on June 29, July 20, & August 10.
Tonight’s concert features some stunning jazz performances from the Dale Fielder Quartet with guest vocals from Rita Edmond. Led by acclaimed baritone saxophonist and composer Dale Fielder, the 22-year-old ensemble performs original jazz compositions as well as rare jazz classics and well-known jazz standards. They have also recorded original extended commissioned jazz suites. The band features jazz legend Jane Getz on piano, pictured with Fielder, above.
At times, it seems as if saxophonist Dale Fielder is one of the national jazz scene’s best kept secrets. An incredibly talented instrumentalist as well as an accomplished composer, Fielder’s command of his instrument, his improvisational runs, the nuances, his warm mellow tone —his total expression is flawless.
