Concert: Arlen Asher Birthday Celebration

Outpost features our favorite multi-woodwind maestro, in concert with some of his longtime musical friends. One of New Mexico's long-standing jazz luminaries, Arlen Asher was born in 1929 in a small farming community in Missouri. He moved to Albuquerque in 1958 and, prior to becoming a full time musician, worked as an award-winning producer and announcer for KNME-TV, KOB-TV and KHFM radio. He left broadcasting to establish a private woodwind studio in 1965 and has been teaching woodwind fundamentals and jazz improvisation to hundreds of students throughout the US, ever since.Asher has appeared on numerous CD's including his own 2002 release, Another Spring and Straight Up's Live Jazz in the Desert, a top selling local jazz CD in New Mexico. At the young age of 88, Asher remains active as a performer as well as hosting "The Jazz Experience" broadcast every Monday morning on Santa Fe Public Radio station, KSFR. He'll be joined by longtime colleague, Jim Ahrend, piano; Colin Deuble, bass; John Trentacosta, drums; plus special guests.
