Last night’s energetic experience in the arts was at the Alex Theatre in Glendale giving us a wonderful treat. This experience started when we walked into the beautiful theatre. Taking in the ambiance and energy of previous historical performances one could almost imagine ghosts of past performers grooving and just jazz-rocking it out to the dazzling performance of the Glendale Pops, this season presented by The Downtown Glendale Association. Last night’s show entitled Fusion – Jaz zThat Rocks had people singing, clapping and dancing in the aisles.
Performing to an almost sold-out house, the fabulous Matt Catingub, Artistic Director and Conductor, wears many hats. We experienced his arrangements with awe. He took the works of Chicago, Steely Dan, and Blood Sweat and Tears, turning them in a Fusion of Jazz and Rock. His versatile vocals added just the right spice to his arrangements. He conducted the orchestra with perfect precision while playing the piano. We were never ever bored because he entertains and performs as a top notch professional. He and the Glendale Pops were joined by vocalist Anita Hall and drummer Steve Moretti as the audience reminisced throughout the evening.
