Anson Wright & Tim Gilson
April 5, 2017 | 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm- Free
Jazz guitarist, composer, novelist, poet, educator, and activist Anson Wright is often called a Renaissance man. An honors graduate of Princeton, Anson left academia to pursue both a music and literary career. He has performed throughout the United States and abroad, including India, as both a soloist and band leader. Anson’s playing has been lauded as combining “unbridled passion and elegant restraint.” Tim Gilson has been a mainstay in the Northwest for many years. In 1985 Tim was the bassist with the award winning Mel Brown Septet. In addition to a busy teaching schedule, Tim performs regularly with Mel Brown and Jof Lee, and he frequently substitutes with the Oregon Symphony.
