Paul Walde

His art has been experienced as far away as Norway, Paris, and Scotland, and as close to home as our own Anchorage Museum right here in Downtown. Spenard Jazz Fest is proud to have award-winning artist and composer Paul Walde joining the virtual ranks this year. If you ever doubted that nature loves jazz, make sure to catch Walde as he revisits his 2016 project titled, Alaska Variations. Alaska Variations was developed as a concept album of sorts that morphed into a multi-channel, multi-media orchestration of Alaska's natural and common sounds. It may very well change the way you look... or in fact, listen... to the world around you.
