2/18/12: Better Homes & Gardens at PDX Jazz Fest

Better Homes and Gardens @ Portland Jazz Festival:

Better Homes and Gardens (the band, not the magazine) will be performing this year at the Portland Jazz Festival.  Better Homes and Gardens is made up of Tim DuRoche on drums, Jon Shaw on bass, Joe Cunningham on tenor sax, and Reed Wallsmith on alto sax.  BHAG has been performing since 2007, originally in an all-improvised context, with a different bass player (Bob Jones).  A year ago, Joe and Reed took it upon themselves to compose an entire album's worth of music for the group, and present it to Tim inside a giant box with a bow on his front porch for his birthday.  They've debuted the material in several venues and house shows, and are excited to present it at the festival this year.  They'll be kicking off directly following Roy Haynes' festival gig.
