Event

Adlai Alexander and John Stowell
Noted for the sweetness and wide range of his voice, Adlai Alexander sings and accompanies himself with intricate guitar in a way thats rare in both the acoustic and jazz worlds.  Adlai enjoys the challenge of arranging band or orchestral music for solo guitar, drawing from his formal training in classical theory and composition. At times, his arrangements of jazz, Brazilian, 60s pop, and other music demand that he play simultaneous melody and bass linesa technique he learned from world-class guitarist Tuck Andress, of the duo Tuck & Patti. Adlai has shared the stage with artists such as Randy Newman, Leo Kottke, Tuck & Patti, Kenny Rankin, and Brazilian star Marisa Monte. Hes appeared at the Monterey Jazz festival and venues such as the  Aladdin and Alberta Rose Theaters in Portland, OR.  As music director of the variety show Fog City Radio on KQED-FM San Francisco, Adlai performed live weekly with host Ben Fong-Torres.

John Stowell is a unique jazz guitarist influenced as much by pianists and horn players as he is by guitarists. His original take on harmony, chords and improvisation sets him apart. John tours, records, and teaches internationally. He has been Artist-In-Residence at schools in Germany, Indonesia, Argentina, and in the United States and Canada. He served as assistant director and performer in Oregon Public Broadcasting's PDX Jazz Summit in 1991, and since 1995 has been a contributing columnist for a number of magazines, including "Downbeat", "Guitar Player", "Canadian Musician", "Soundcheck" (Germany), and "Guitar Club" (Italy). He was chosen "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" by Downbeat's International Critic's Poll, 1978 and 1979 His recording/Performance Credits include Milt Jackson, Lionel Hampton, Art Farmer, Conte Condoli, Herb Ellis, Bill Watrous, Mundell Lowe, George Cables, Billy Higgins, Billy Hart, Richie Cole, Paul Horn, Tom Harrrell, Don Thompson, Dave Liebman, and many others
