Checkers mortonCheckers Morton

6:00 pm, Monday, April 10

April is Jazz month and to celebrate we have Checkers Morton playing at HPL.  If you come to hear Checkers Morton you may be a different person when you leave. What you will hear is a band of friends who have played together under this moniker for 40 years. You will hear music from the heart and soul - inspired by the flow of energy that originates at our Source. Original compositions by all of the members of the band, ranging from Dan's light hearted 'Padge' to Gus' deeply inspiring 'Little Raga'. You will hear this amazing music performed on wood, reeds, brass, ivory and primal drums. Checkers Morton is Dave Collee on bass, Gus VanStee on keys, Jim Beegle on trumpet, flueglehorn, congas and flute, Dan Giacobassi on saxes, flute and shakuhachi and Tim Froncek on the drums.  Checkers Morton came together in the early autumn of 1972 on the shores of Lake Michigan in Grand Haven, Michigan. The power of the lake and the power of Free Music forged a bond that is still strong today. Though decades and members have come and gone, those of us who remain still get together to honor that Muse which brings us such beauty and deep meditation ... Free Music ... Checkers Morton.  For more information see their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CheckersMorton/timeline
