The INHOUSE Jazz series of intimate home concerts will continue this Sunday, Aug. 12, with a performance from trumpet player John Bringetto and pianist Mike Horsfall at a home in Siletz.

These veterans of the Pacific Northwest jazz scene have been delighting INHOUSE audiences as a duo for three summers with their unique repartee, creating unusual and playful musical conversations.

Born in California, Bringetto holds both a BA and MA in music and has been a professional musician most of his life, playing trumpet, flugelhorn, saxophone and flute. He played the jazz chair in the Stan Kenton Neophonic and has backed such singers as Nancy Wilson, Frankie Avalon and BB King. From 1999 to 2009, Bringetto played music in many countries as he sailed around the world before settling in Newport. He is band director of the Lincoln Pops Orchestra and plays locally with Perpetua as well as the Bringetto Jazz Duo.

Horsfall has enjoyed a successful and diverse musical career for more than 35 years, serving as a performer, educator, composer, arranger, recording artist and concert soloist on both piano and vibraphone. He has performed and recorded with a large number of world-class musicians, including Bud Shank, Chuck Redd and Rebecca Kilgore, and has worked with such notable groups as Pink Martini, the Nu Shooz Orchestra and the Portland Chamber Orchestra. In 1989 he co-founded the trio Tall Jazz, which became the first ensemble to be voted into the Jazz Society of Oregon’s Hall of Fame.

Sunday’s concert, hosted by vocalist Annie Averre, will run from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. Admission is by suggested donation of $15 to $30, with profits donated locally in support of music education.
