This came in the mail today. An open invitation from the Baguio Writers' Group to a night of good music in Baguio! It's scat time.
"Jacqui Magno, known for her incredible range and versatility, is the main act in the Baguio Writers Group invitational concert “Jazz for Tonight” on Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Par 7 of Baguio Country Club, South Drive, Baguio City.
There is never any doubt that Jacqui is going to hit that note or weave through a trill. Taking music as an art not to be compromised, she used to be concerned with lyrics and melody. But now she has broadened her perspective, she creates music or just jams along.
In the words of one journalist, “Jacqui’s style is fiercely individualistic.” Today Jacqui and jazz are practically synonymous. Mellowed by her years of search, she scatted her way into her real love: jazz. (Photo courtesy of Ms. Magno)
The other performers in “Jazz for Tonight” are public relations consultant and book editor Gou de Jesus, INQUIRER correspondent Desiree Caluza and the vocal ensemble On Call under Dr. Denis Flores with Richard Cariño on the piano, Enrico Subido on the lead guitar, Egay Buñing on bass, Butch Cando on drums and Joanifer Abubo on sax.
Emcees are Linc Drilon and Nonnette Bennett.
The concert, in cooperation with Smart Communications Inc., will benefit the writers group’s series of writing workshops, outreach program, proposed prose and poetry anthology and its ailing founding member Napoleon Javier, a stroke victim. A minimum donation of P300 will be collected at the door. This is inclusive of heavy cocktails."
