Stillway & Bonham play Oct. 28

“The new album from guitarists Stillway & Bonham capitalizes on their talents for improvisation as they seek to complement each other on the songs each brings to the mix. In this recording session for the new CD, each player brought a fresh batch of original compositions and allowed the other to add their instinctive touches to the music. It’s very much in the jazz-improvisational format,” Ben Bonham said. “Since working with Jamie — for the last 15 years — I’ve learned how to jam.” Catch them on Saturday, Oct 28, 7 p.m. at the home of Paul Blackburn, 401 Montello, Hood River.
