Jazz in the Neighborhood and New Performance Traditions are proud to present the West Oakland Sessions: Creative Music Series. This series of 10 concerts will include musicians and groups spanning the improvised tradition, with influences across the jazz, classical, and avant-garde spheres of music. All concerts in this series require proof of full vaccination for all audience members and musicians.
Join us March 20th at 4pm to see Facets with Hafez Modirzadeh (saxophone), Alex Peh (piano), and Keshav Batish (drums) at the West Oakland Sessions: Creative Music Series.
Composer/saxophonist/theorist Hafez Modirzadeh developed his pioneering “chromodal” concept, a cross-cultural musical approach developed from American jazz and Iranian dastgah heritages. He has published on the subject and developed performance techniques to adapt the saxophone to the Persian tuning system. He received his Masters from UCLA and his Ph.D. in Ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University.
