February 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Jazz Vespers is a modern version of an ancient Evensong which intersperses music and scripture. Jazz reminds us who we are and where we have come from, while inspiring us into reality of who we can become in the Risen Christ. Jazz is the music of the social gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Jack Lantz Sextet will present a Jazz Vespers worship experience featuring the jazz versions of hymns, spirituals and gospel music in the La Cañada Presbyterian Church on Sunday, February 25 at 5 p.m.
LCPC Jazz Vespers is presented live and in-person in the sanctuary at LCPC. In addition, it will be livestreamed – see the link below.
The Jazz Vespers program will feature the Jack Lantz Sextet (Jim Youngstrom, alto and tenor saxophones; Jeff Kaye, trumpet; Ido Meshulam, trombone; plus Nick Morabito, bass, Dave Marks, drums and Jack on piano) improvising on a wide range of familiar hymns and gospel music, in swing style. Simple liturgy and background stories will connect the music. “This Sunday is the opportunity for people to have fun, to worship, to celebrate and do all those fun things they like to do with jazz swing music in a church setting” Lantz said.
No charge (freewill offering received) and no reservations required for this hour-long event. Join us for an extraordinary celebration of joy, energy and liberation, as we celebrate life the gifts of God.
