It will be swing and bebop galore on Friday, Feb. 24, as the Lincoln City Cultural Center presents a two-set jazz concert by saxophone and clarinet player Jacob Zimmerman. He’ll perform with pianist Jake Svendson and bassist Nate Parker, in a 7 p.m. show at the LCCC, 540 NE Highway 101. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Seattle-based Zimmerman is an extremely versatile and integral part of the local creative-music community. He studied music at the internationally renowned Garfield High School, the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, and Mills College in Oakland. His teachers have included Roscoe Mitchell, Jerry Bergonzi, Joe Morris and Anthony Coleman. In 2013, Zimmerman was recognized as the “Emerging Artist of Year” by Earshot Jazz, where one reviewer said, “Zimmerman leads with a tasteful, versatile voice.”
