On Saturday, October 8, composer and jazz musician Francisco Pais returns to the Jamestown Arts Center to debut his new album: A.M.A. Project

Tickets are available online at www.jamestownartcenter.org/events or at the door ($25 for general admission online; $30 at the door). Concert begins at 7 pm and will be followed by a reception with the artists. All events held at the Jamestown Arts Center, 18 Valley St. in Jamestown. Cash bar.

During his 20-year career, Portuguese composer Francisco Pais has found himself situated in both the center and the periphery of jazz. His ensemble music is at home in historic New York jazz clubs and jazz festivals, but can also be heard in cultural arts centers and theaters. 

Francisco’s latest compositions, to be performed on Saturday, are a reflection of an immigrant’s divided identity and the relationship between the traditional music of his home country with those of the wider global community he now belongs to.
