On Monday, January 14 at 7:00, the Bozeman Public Library Foundation presents world renown jazz bassist/composer and educator Kelly Roberti giving an insightful and informed view of the everchanging role and the lineage of the pivotal players on the bass in jazz history. There will be musical examples showcasing each important evolution featuring both explanations of why the change in approach occurred and what the change was rhythmically. This lecture performance is to provide a greater understanding of the ever evolving rhythmic body of jazz music from the late 19th century to the present. There will be plenty of music, too.

Hey! Heads up…Check out my friend Pascal Martos and his incredible work for the music and musicians…remarkable stuff. All available and well worth it. A very prolific and original man, take a look..


On Sunday, September 9 at 7:00 internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist and song stylist Andrea Wolper will be featured in concert at the Cikan residence (31 Hitching Post Road) in Bozeman. The show is for all ages and promises to be a tremendous evening of music.
Andrea Wolper has been termed a “giant singer” (In Tune Int’l) and “an audacious artist [with] an inventive, thrilling, appealing musical vision” (Blogcritics). Andrea Wolper appears frequently in her New York home base, and tours nationally and internationally. For her Montana debut, Andrea teams up with Ann Tappan at the piano and Kelly Roberti on the bass to perform selections from her repertoire which includes some selections from her widely-praised CD, “Parallel Lives” which was included in three end-of-year critics’ “best of 2011” lists. Full of surprises, she’s as accomplished and at home with the standards of the Great American Songbook as she is with her originals and her illuminating arrangements. She’s “a singer who brings songs to life, whatever their source, working in a milieu that begins with jazz and reaches out to embrace an expressive area that is uniquely her own” (Heckman, International Review of Music). You don’t want to miss this performance. The venue is intimate and reservations are strongly suggested. Admission is $18.00. For info and reservations contact

Jazz & More w/ Kelly Roberti

Glenn Chamberlin

Join Kelly for “Jazz & More” Monday, July 2nd at 7 pm in the Library’s Large Community room for an off-the-cuff interview with BoZone owner Glenn Chamberlin and some of his staff. Long before The Bozeman Brewing Company started making the paper’s namesake beer (since 1993, in fact), long before ‘the Bozone’ was synonymous with ‘BozAngeles,’ The BoZone Entertainment and Events Calendar was the ‘go to’ alternative paper to find out what’s happening here. A lot has changed during the past two decades — find out what the publication — a veritable Bozeman institution — is doing to stay on the cutting edge. This will be a blast — there’s a reason these guys are ‘alternative.’
