November 06, 2018
MOSCOW, Idaho — Nov. 6, 2018 — Kate Skinner, jazz instructor in the University of Idaho Lionel Hampton School of Music, and Josh Skinner, manager of the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, are marking the release of their newest duo album, “Skinny Squared,” with a live concert from 8-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at Bucer’s Coffeehouse Pub, 201 S. Main St. in downtown Moscow.
The album was funded in part by a grant from the university’s Fine Arts Committee. It features original compositions, along with arrangements of jazz standards and some pop tunes, including songs from the British rock band Genesis and Disney’s animated feature “Aladdin.”
“You’ll hear layers of different influences in our compositions and arrangements,” Kate Skinner said. “This is a jazz album that has something for every listener.”
Admission to the event is free. CDs will be available for purchase at a cost of $5.
