Performance jazzes up familiar tunes

The Dmitri Matheny Group will perform “Jazz Noir” Feb. 10 at the Power House Theatre in Walla Walla.

WALLA WALLA — A fresh and jazzy spin on familiar TV and movie themes will be performed by the Dmitri Matheny Group during an upcoming show in Walla Walla.

“Jazz Noir” includes new works and jazz classics, including a Noir Medley of cinematic favorites — “Touch of Evil,” “Laura,” “Chinatown,” “Vertigo,” “Taxi Driver” and “Blues in the Night.” The performance also features an original Crime Scenes suite, a dreamlike series of vignettes linked together with voice-over narrative in the hard-boiled detective style of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

The event is Friday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Power House Theatre, 111 N. Sixth St., Walla Walla. Tickets, which are $24-$29 for adults and $18 for students, are available at www.phtww.com or by calling 509-529-6500.
