THE ART 5 LIVE AT AT ARTS 5TH
Friday/July 28...9 pm...$10
Five of Texas' top musicians come together for one very special intimate night of Cosmic Improvisatory Abandon.
4 members, including Canyon Kafer on 7-string bass, of Fort Worth's award-winning tribal jazz ensemble The ArKesTra are joined by the masterful original guitar of Denver's own Bill Pohl. Don't miss this one-time evening with Eddie Dunlap, Joe Rogers, Chris White, Canyon Kafer, and Bill Pohl."
Famous figures. Well known characters. Celebrities, or someone who has attained celebrity. These are the ideas that loosely define the varied scenes and monologues in SceneShop's 22nd annual summer showcase, titled, "Someone You Know..." One scene involves an "infamous" figure, tied to local and national history. Another invokes cherished Hollywood memories, with a side dish of creepy. The dangerous legacy of a famous fictional character colors one zany work, while other pieces bring fame into memorable collision with the paranormal, and full-tilt insanity. In short, SceneShop promises another evening of variety and surprises.
Each performance will feature live music before the show and at intermission. Opening Night, August 5, will feature the dynamic work of pianist Sam Carlile. Singer-songwriter Mark Philpot will entertain on Friday, Aug. 11, and closing night, Aug. 12, will offer the eclectic sounds of Bob Francis and Friends.

REMEMBERING JAMES CLAY
Sunday/September 3...7 to 10 pm...$15
James Earl Clay (b. Sept. 8, 1935 - d. Jan. 6, 1995) was an American hard bop jazz tenor saxophonist & flutist, and a native of Dallas, TX.
2017 is our 9th annual tribute and features DFW jazz musicians who knew and worked with James Clay. Anchoring the event will be Roger Boykin/saxophone, Johnny Case/piano, and Duane Durrett/drums - complete musical line-up to be announced.
"Playing with Ornette (Coleman) opened me up quite a bit," said Clay, who was part of Coleman's Jazz Messiahs ...I remember one day we came out of the crib and we were going to practice. I got one of those method books out, and we started playing and Ornette just went off like, and I'm playing toot-toot-toot. So I promptly closed the book up. I said, 'Well, we're going off in a completely different direction here, hmmmm.' It opened my ears up to a lot more."
