Music: Classical/jazz crossover with Petrichord: “Crossing from Bach to Daft Punk” on Thurs., May 7, at 8 PM

Samuel_Suggs_BW_WebDouble bassist Sam Suggs, along with vocalist Molly Netter and perhaps some other friends, will perform at Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, May 7. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.

The program is “Petrichord: Crossing from Bach to Daft Punk” with vocalist Molly Netter and double bassist Sam Suggs and friends.

“I’m going to do a good deal of solo work — arrangements of Bach’s lute suite, a premiere of a new work and my own compositions — as well as pieces with my duo partner Molly Netter and maybe a few other friends will join — classical, jazz, fuzzy,” says Suggs.

Oregon Arts Watch:

What Suggs proceeded to play quite simply boggled the mind. Audience members sat up on the edge of their seats, leaning forward … to try to discern just how he was making the myriad sounds from his single instrument… I virtually held my breath all the way to the end.”

Seen and Heard International wrote, “Molly Netter enlivens complex and beautiful music with a voice described as “crisp and clear, white yet warm.”
