New West Guitar Group, Spencer Day

BRETT CAMPBELL
8 pm., Monday July 22 | $10.
Jimmy Mak's
221 NW 10th Ave.
 
[JAZZ MEETS POP] This is a concert of jazz-influenced pop meeting pop-influenced jazz. Erstwhile Oregonian John Storie’s virtuoso New West Guitar Group plays a warm, Metheny-esque blend of various solid- and hollow-body acoustic and electric guitars that appeals to jazz fans appreciative of tight, inventive excursions into pop instrumental territory. NWGG’s upcoming new album, Big City, mixes covers of Simon & Garfunkel, Tears for Fears and Joni Mitchell, with expansive originals. The band makes a seemingly odd pairing with Spencer Day, who made his rep crooning standards on the Bay Area jazz circuit, then somehow hit the pop charts with ’60s-style Bacharachian torch-song originals.
