This Month in Jazz ~ 6/1/2021 ~ things are picking up!

     Greetings, friends! I’m happy to be able to preview a month’s worth of gigs in this newsletter (instead of, like, six months at a time!)  June is returning to a near normal frequency of gigs and it’s happening at just the time when we’re all getting out and doing things! I hope this message finds you well and healthy… and vaccinated!

     Thursday, June 3rd, I’m kicking off a summer-long series of Jazz Soirées at Hamden’s Whitney Center ~ a lovely retirement village.  At this time due to health concerns, these events are private and limited to residents only but I wanted you to know that I’ll be in some great company.

  • June 3rd – with Atla DeChamplain on vocals.

  • June 24th – with Joe Carter on guitar.

  • July 15th – with Isabella Mendes, vocals and piano.

  • August 5th – with Michaela and Michael Coppola, many guitar strings.

     On Saturday, June 5th from 8 – 11 pm, I’ll be playing with Cherry Pie, singer & ukulele artiste Jillian Grey’s eclectic, swingin’ band, at The Griswold Inn, 36 Main St., Essex, CT.  Also in the band are Joe Grieco, piano, and Ric Haddad, drums.

     On Sunday, June 6th from 12 noon – 3 pm, I’ll 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, and though it’s a duo gig I wouldn’t be surprised if Barry Ries didn’t show up on trumpet.

     On Saturday, June 12th, from 4 – 7 pm, I’ll be over at Café Nine, 250 State Street, New Haven, for the weekly jazz jam session, with Dr. G, Gary Grippo on guitar.  Barry Ries will supply the drums and trumpet parts.

     On Wednesday, Wednesday, June 30th, from 6 – 9 pm, I’ll be joining my YouTube collaborator Joe Carter’s Samba Rio Trio at La Zingara Restaurant, 8 Barnum Square, Bethel CT.  Brazilian jazz under the stars!  Joining Joe and me will be the marvelous Graciliano Zambonin on drumset.  Reservations are a must, click here.

     Well that’s all for now… I’m happy to be back in touch and to have a few more gigs to hawk.  It’ll be great to see you again at one of these gigs. If you’d like to hear some of my original music, please check me out on Bandcamp.  All the best!
