Berklee in Gloucester


World-renowned Berklee Professors perform in Gloucester with Top Students & help raise money to send Gloucester students Berklee

Thank you to all who attended on Oct 25, 2012. We were treated to a one-of-a-kind show. Karen Ristuben (artist, jazz musician & President of Rocky Neck Art Gallery) said, "On smoking alto sax, Odgren led the band through a tasty array of be-bop, ballads and straight-aheads from Evans to Coltrane." (see full review here)

gimmeLIVE is proud to welcome Berklee professors and students to Gloucester, MA for a second season of benefit concerts sponsored by gimmesound ~ local live music.

We kick off the 2012/2013 Berklee in Gloucester season with The Jim Odgren Quintet live at The Gloucester House, playing jazz and standard songs in a style steeped in the rich tradition of 50's and 60's Blue Note jazz.

Doors open @ 6:30 with a special dinner menu. Come for dinner, stay for the show!

Listen to a North Shore 104.9fm podcast about this concert

Both Professors at Berklee College of music in Boston, Dave Santoro (acoustic bass) and Jim Odgren (alto saxophone) co-lead the band. Joining them are three young and very talented Berklee student musicians - Roberto Giaquinto on drums, Davis Whitfield on piano and Lucian Gray on guitar. Their music swings hard, bringing out a style reminiscent of mainstream jazz from the era, combined with solos that venture into more modern sounds. Dave and Jim have released one cd together. It's called "Day Dreaming". It can be found on CDBaby here.

Jim Odgren, alto saxophonist extraordinaire, has put together an album filled with playing of extraordinary intricacy. Yet it's executed with such style and ease, it's accessible to the common listener. Its smooth melodicism, mixed with intricate lines and exiting harmonies makes this album a must to listen to. This is musicianship at the highest level and it deserves a place in everyones CD collection.
