Bert Jackson debuts “IrMaria” at AFCC Winter Art Opening

Bert Jackson brought a trio with Rich Hill (bass) and Dave Dillon (drums) for the opening of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod Winter Art Show, entitled Sensory Overload. Bert’s trio played a free jazz composition he composed in honor of the hurricanes that swept through the Caribbean just a few months prior, IrMaria. Mostly freeform, the piece followed the five stages of riding out a hurricane: Prelude, Storm, Eye, Fury, and Aftermath. Performed at the Cotuit Center for the Arts to a full house, it was the only musical piece of the evening.
