This week the Concerts at the Cadillac series of one-hour free jazz performances moves from its usual Friday noontime schedule to Saturday. The featured artists will be the duo of trumpeter Nick Phillips with pianist Cava Menzies. They will perform selections from their latest album (self-produced), Moment to Moment, which was released through CD Baby at the end of last month and debuted as #14 on the Billboard/Sound Scan Traditional Jazz Chart.
This concert will take place in the lobby of the Cadillac Hotel (380 Eddy Street at the corner of Leavenworth Street) this coming Saturday, March 8, at 12:30 p.m. Menzies will perform on the hotel’s meticulously restored 1884 Steinway Model D concert grand. With the partial support of the North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District, this concert is offered free of charge by the hotel as a gift to the people of the Tenderloin. The Cadillac calls itself “The House of Welcome Since 1907;” and all are definitely welcome to this free jazz opportunity.
