First Thursdays gets
in the swing of things
First Thursdays was swinging May 3, as The Chris Klich Jazz Quintet and vocalist Laura Prebble brought classic jazz to the Powerhouse.
The quintet started the evening with some original compositions like "Tower Five," inspired by our own Torrey Pines State Beach, and ended with such greats as "God Bless the Child," made famous by Billie Holliday. The selections also ran from classic jazz standards by Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, and John Coltrane to all-time standards by George Gershwin and Stevie Wonder. First Thursdays is a presentation of the Cultural Arts Committee of The Del Mar Foundation.
