Cannon Beach History Center & Museum
It might be Friday the 13th, but we’re still going to rock the house! Whether your superstitious or not, this is a not-to-miss event. A little jazz noir is a great way to celebrate this day.
The Dmitri Matheny Duo will perform at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 13 as part of the Cottage Tour weekend event series. Tickets are just $20 and include a smorgasbord of refreshments.
Acclaimed for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990’s as the protégé of jazz legend, Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia, traveling to 19 countries. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Dmitri Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”
“Dmitri Matheny is a jazz treasure. The lyrical Matheny has impressive chops, but it’s his warmth and soulfulness that win you over.”—All Music Guide
This event will take place at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum and is part of the museum’s annual fundraiser – the Cottage Tour. Funds go towards keeping the museum’s free lecture series, field trip program, and keeping our doors open. It’s definitely a worthy cause to support Cannon Beach’s only history museum.
Tickets are available to purchased at the museum, over the phone (503-436-9301), or through the online gift shop.
