Summer’s a’Comin’ Jazz ~ 5/27/24

     Hi everyone!  Happy Memorial Day, despite the rain and clouds we have here…  Yesterday was glorious enough for two days!  Summer’s a’comin’ and I wanted to give you a heads up on my schedule for June.

     Every Monday from 7 – 8:30 pm, I’ll be playing with Pat Todd’s Tuxedo Junction ~ a big band with a swingin’ and danceable repertoire ~ at the Guilford VFW Hall, 104 Mill Road, Guilford, CT.  Open to the public, free. In addition, on Sunday, June 30th we have a double header!  From 1 – 3 pm we’ll be at the Guilford LobsterFest, and later (6-7:30pm) at the Guilford Green.

     Sunday Brunch Jazz at the Elm City Market, 777 Chapel Street, New Haven. All shows 10am – 1 pm.  Come enjoy a relaxing, sunlit jazz brunch!

  • On June 9th, guitarist Tony Lombardozzi, with Phil Bowler on bass and Barry Ries on drums. (I won’t be there that day – see below.)

  • On June 23rd, myself with pianist Darren Litzie, Ben Bilello on drums.

     Sundays at Quattro’s, Italian Restaurant & Bar, 14 Water Street, Guilford, CT.  Our host and guitarist, “Dr G” Gary Grippo invites an impressive group of guest artists to perform with myself and the indomitable Barry Ries on drums and trumpet.  Shows from 12 – 3 pm.

  • On June 2nd, guest artist is vocalist Karen Frisk.

  • On June 16th, guest artist is Dave Arezzini on alto sax.

     On Wednesday, June 12th from 7 – 9 pm, I’ll be joining Allen Lowe & The All-Stars at Best Video Film & Cultural Center, 1842 Whitney Ave., Hamden, for their monthly jazz session with “a coterie of musical guests.”  This is CT’s most intimate listening room ~ a great play to really listen to the music!  $10 cover.

     This is not a local event, but I wanted you to know that on Saturday, June 8th I’ll be performing in Los Angeles, CA, at the memorial service/concert for my oldest, dearest friend and colleague, composer/percussionist Dr. Frank Bennett and his amazing wife Geetha Ramanathan Bennett, a superlative artist in the Carnatic music tradition! Frank & Geetha left a huge legacy of outstanding compositions and performances – not to mention their very musical son, Anand.  I’ll be playing Frank’s music with Anand’s quartet, and will possibly sit in with Brad Dechter’s little big band.  Click here for link.

     So… life is full of memories, some happy and some sad, and this Memorial Day might be a good time to reflect on them with clarity, understanding and feeling.
