JAS hosts free blues show

CARBONDALE- Blues musician Corky Siegel will perform at the TRTC Theatre in Carbondale today as part of Jazz Aspen Snowmass In-Schools programming.Siegel has spent the week visiting middle and high school students throughout the valley for assemblies and master classes with bands and ensembles. The JAS In-Schools residency programs began in 2002 to provide students of the Roaring Fork Valley with an in-depth introduction to jazz from professional jazz musicians such as Siegel.Siegel has earned an international reputation as one of the world’s great blues harmonica masters. He is a composer, blues pianist and singer-songwriter with numerous recordings to his name. In 2005, Siegel released three separate recordings, each featuring different players and styles.

On Siegel’s “Traveling Chamber Blues Show,” he combines the unlikely genre of blues and chamber music. On “Flash Forward,” Siegel collaborates again with guitarist Jim Schwall for the pair’s first studio recording in 32 years. And on “Buried Alive in the Blues,” Siegel joins eight other musicians under the moniker Chicago Blues Reunion.Siegel’s performance at TRTC Theatre begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free to the public. Donations to JAS In-School programming are encouraged at the door. For more information on JAS education programs, call 920-4996.
