PERFORMANCES

Jazz In July ~ 7/2/24

     With the heat and thunderstorms, there can’t be any doubt that summer has arrived!  July is turning out to be a good month for some travel and vacation, so correspondingly my gigs are a bit more sparse this month.  That being said, here’s what’s on the schedule:

     On Wednesday, July 10th 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.

     Sunday Brunch Jazz at the Elm City Market, 777 Chapel Street, New Haven. This will be the last month for a while (we’re stopping in August) so … come on down!  All sets run from 10am – 1 pm.  Come enjoy a relaxing, sunlit jazz brunch!

  • On July 14th, guitarist Joe Carter and I will accompany a great singer, Leala Cyr, in a program of mostly Brazilian bossa novas. Leala lived in Brazil, speaks fluent Portuguese and sings the classics from Jobim, Ivan Lins and Djavan.

  • On July 28rd, we’ll play the last summer brunch there, with the group that started it all off: myself on bass, pianist Darren Litzie, and Ben Bilello on drums.  Great mix of standards and originals.

     I’ve booked a couple of Sunday Matinée shows at The Whitney Center, 200 Leeder Hill Rd., Hamden, in their spacious (air-conditioned) auditorium.  Free and open to the public.

  • On Sunday, July 14th, from 4 – 5:30 pm my trio, with pianist Darren Litzie and Ben Bilello on drums, will play a mixture of our originals and well-crafted jazz standards.

  • On Sunday, July 28th from 4 – 5:30 pm, the afore-mentioned Leala Cyr (vocals) joins me, guitarist Joe Carter and drummer Ben Bilello for a great program of Brazilian music – bossa novas and sambas.

     Saturday, July 13th, 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 and Barry Ries on drums and trumpet.  It’s such a fun scene! Musicians, come sit in after the first set!     

     Every Monday in July (except 7/22) 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 (and air-conditioned!).

     More hot (or cool) jazz to come in August.  Here’s wishing you and your family a glorious, relaxing and jazz-filled summer!
