2011 Vectren Just Jazz Series concludes with Khalid Moss & Michael Bashaw
The Dayton Art Institute’s 2011 Vectren Just Jazz series will conclude on Thursday, Nov. 3, with the return of series favorites Khalid Moss and Michael Bashaw. Flautist, sculptor, bandleader and teacher Michael Bashaw and his wife, Sandy, are the leaders of Puzzle of Light, a quintet that plays “American creative music” for music/film soundtracks and educational programs. Their most recent project is an interactive program for children called WATER. Michael Bashaw’s fine art can be seen at many public venues and in private collections. Pianist, composer and Dayton City Paper contributor Khalid Moss has played in every state in the union (except Idaho), every province in Canada and been to Europe more than a dozen times. He has played the White House, Carnegie Hall and other prominent venues with artists such as Yusef Lateef, Betty Carter, Johnny Lytle and many others. Moss and Bashaw will join forces for a combined set to conclude the show. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the performance begins at 5:30 p.m. in the museum’s Shaw Gothic Cloister. Admission is FREE for museum members and $8 for non-members. General admission tickets may be purchased at the DAI the night of the performance. A cash bar is available for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and hors d’oeuvres.
