Ben Darwish's Commotion

BRETT CAMPBELL
9 pm, Saturday March 26 | $8
Goodfoot Lounge
2845 SE Stark St.
 
[FUNKJAZZPARTY] Pianist Ben Darwish is best known for his scintillating jazz, but his Afrobeat funk freak alter ego has enlisted nine other closet funksters amid Portland’s jazz community, including guitarist Dan Duval and saxophonist John Nastos, moonlighting members of Trio Subtonic, Curtis Salgado’s band, Blue Cranes and more. For this dance party, the revamped lineup, with simpatico guests, including singer Jans Ingber and veterans of the Motet and Mingus Big Band, may unleash some of its popular Afrobeat Michael Jackson tunes and other pop-funk-jazz mash-ups, but whatever it plays is certain to live up to the group's name.
