Jazz At The Cherry proudly welcomes Bruce Forman and The Red Guitar back to our stage on Sunday, February 11th, at 1pm. Doors open at 12:30 for wine and light fare included in the ticket price.

Imagine receiving an invitation to a gala featuring John Coltrane, Sigmund Freud, and Faust. Bruce Forman’s “The Red Guitar” is all that more. It draws on Forman’s decades of experience as a formidable jazz guitarist and his considerable skill as a storyteller and teacher, producing a work that is greater than the sum of its dazzling parts.

​A story in and about jazz, The Red Guitar showcases Bruce Forman’s genre—breaking inventiveness and his ability to improvise and create within a classical form. Enlisting the full power of the jazz idiom and integrating it with seasoned and provocative story-telling, he confronts the dilemma of artistic obsession face-to-face—by creating a work of art that simultaneously explores and demonstrates the hold that music has over its most ardent followers, the hold that poses itself as a life-or-death, must-be-solved-question to Forman and his ilk: “The Red Guitar.” Do you play it…or does it play you?

Tickets are $35, available on Eventbrite.com or by calling (831) 624-7491. You won’t want to miss this mesmerizing, and delightful performance.
