Dec. 4 performance celebrates release of Pfeifer-Rosenblum CD
Seventeen-year-old Alex Pfeifer-Rosenblum of El Cerrito performs Sunday, Dec. 4 at Ashkenaz (1317 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley, CA. 94702 - near Gilman St.). Doors open at 7:00 PM, the show starts at 7:30. Tickets are available for $10 -20 on the night of the show, or in advance from www.ticketweb.com.
Now a senior at El Cerrito High School where he plays trombone in the Symphonic Band and Jazz Ensemble (and is a second chair trombonist for SFJazz All-Star High School Ensemble), Pfeifer-Rosenblum puts down his trombone, and sings and plays guitar with a band to celebrate the release of his new pop CD, “Green Chair Circle.”
The music is folk and folk-rock with some jazz added to Pfeifer-Rosenblum’s original songs. For this show he is accompanied by his sister Rebecca on drums, bassist Ben Decker, and additional guitar and vocals from Lisa Zeiler, Eve Decker and Andrea Pritchett (collectively known as Rebecca Riots but here playing a support role).
Pfeifer-Rosenblum recalls being inspired by music as a three-year-old at Berkeley Tuolumne Camp near Yosemite, where musicians met at a gathering spot called the Green Chair Circle, thus the title of his debut CD. His heartfelt songs focus on personal and political issues, and have been inspired by the music of James Taylor, Paul Simon, Patty Griffin and the Indigo Girls.
