The Jazz Bridge first Wednesdays Neighborhood Concerts Series at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts, 439 Ashbourne Road in Cheltenham PA, presents bassist Madison Rast on Wednesday, December 4th. Showtime is 7:30 p.m., tickets are $10/$5 for students, and are only available at the door. For info: 215-517-8337 or visit Jazz Bridge.

In a region populated by some of the finest bassists in the world, Madison Rast stands as among the most accomplished and among the most in-demand. Rast, who holds a Master’s Degree in Jazz Performance from Virginia Commonwealth University, and is also a composer and educator of note, has a room-filling tone and a driving sense of swing. He’s worked with Orrin Evans, Barry Harris and Jimmy Heath, but is rapidly emerging as a leader in his own right. Madison Rast will be accompanied by pianist Josh Richman, drummer Dan Monaghan and guitarist Craig Ebner.

The Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concerts Series is partially funded by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Philadelphia Jazz Project, Philadelphia Fund for Jazz Legacy and Innovation of the Philadelphia Foundation, and Painted Bride Arts Center. Jazz Bridge, a 501C public charity that assists area jazz and blues musicians in crisis, is sponsoring this performance in Cheltenham, as well as 40 other events this season on five area stages in the Greater Delaware Valley.
