Jazz March ~ 2/25/2020 ~ upcoming gigs!
March forward ~ sometimes it seems that Spring might be right around the corner! Well, maybe… but jazz definitely is! But first, here’s a recent clip on WTNH about jazz in New Haven. I was one of those interviewed, and it brings to mind how important the culture of jazz is to the city of New Haven.
Jeff Fuller & Friends, with Darren Litzie on piano and Ben Bilello on drums will be featured this Friday, February 28th, at 7 pm, on the Neighborhood Music School Faculty Concert, along with the NMS Ragtime Ensemble. We’ll be playing selections from our CDs, including the new one, “Round & Round.” Free admission.
On Sunday, March 1st from 12 noon – 3 pm, Darren LItzie (piano) and I will be performing with guitarist/podiatrist Gary Grippo at Quattro’s Italian Restaurant & Bar, 14 Water Street, Guilford, CT. An authentic jazz brunch is on tap here, also featuring the smooth sounds of Barry Ries on drums and trumpet.
On Monday, March 2nd from 8 - 11 pm, I’ll be playing with vocalist extraordinaire Shawnn Monteiro at Black Eyed Sally’s, 350 Asylum Street, Hartford, CT, along with pianist Matt DeChamplain and drummer Ben Bilello. Sponsored by the Hartford Jazz Society. Under 21s welcomed.
On Friday, March 6th, from 8 – 9 pm, I’ll be playing in Darren Litzie’s Master’s Degree recital at the Hartt School of Music, Fuller Music Building, Room 121, located on the campus of the U of Hartford, 200 Bloomfield Ave., W. Hartford. Free admission, open to all. Joining us will be Chris Morrison on guitar and Ben Bilello on drums.
Sunday, March 8th, from 3:30 – 6 pm, I’ll be taking in part in the Monthly Tap (dance) Jam hosted by Alexis Robbins, at Whitney Cultural Commons, 1253 Whitney Ave., Hamden, CT. Joining me will be Finn Henry on piano and Joe Murfin on drums. Come one, come all!
On Sunday, March 15th, from 12 noon – 3 pm, Ben Bilello (drums) and I will be performing with guitarist/podiatrist Gary Grippo at Quattro’s Italian Restaurant & Bar, 14 Water Street, Guilford, CT. An authentic jazz brunch is on tap here, also featuring the smooth sounds of Barry Ries on trumpet.
Later that Sunday, March 15th from 6 – 8 pm, I’ll be back at Ayuthai, 2279 Boston Post Road, Guilford, with Dr. Joe Cardinale (guitar) and the dynamic wife-husband team of Natalia Bernal (vocals) and Jason Ennis (7-string guitar). Ben Bilello plays drums. As always, a tasteful, Brazilian-flavored night with this group!
On Thursday, March 19th from 6:30 pm (2 sets), Jeff Fuller & Friends, with Darren Litzie on piano and Ben Bilello on drums, will be at Pearl @ Longshore, 260 Compo Rd. So., Westport, CT, for the jazz series hosted by Rabbi Greg Wall on tenor sax. This will be an explosive evening of jazz!
More fun stuff coming in late March too! As always, Thanks For Listening!
