Jazz in May ~ 5/2/22 ~ Happy Spring everyone!

     First, I want to wish everyone a belated happy May Day ~ International Workers Day, commemorating the 1886 Haymarket massacre (look it up!) And I want to remind you that my latest CD, “Keep Hope Alive,” featuring Darren Litzie on piano and Ben Bilello on drums, is available at all my gigs, and also on the musician’s online platform, Bandcamp. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to Ukrainian war relief efforts.


     Monday, May 2nd from 7 – 8:30 pm, I’ll be playing with Pat Todd’s Tuxedo Junction ~ a swingin’ 17-piece big band ~ at the Guilford VFW Hall, 104 Mill Road, Guilford, CT.  A different theme is featured each week. Tonight: Val Rogers on vocals. Future Mondays: May 16th and May 30th.

     Thursday, May 5th from 7:30 – 9:30 pm, at Milford’s finest Italian spot Strega, 9 River Street in the heart of downtown, I’ll be playing with my good friend, drummer Richard Sylvester and his Blue Lion Trio, featuring the wonderful pianist David Childs. The cuisine is outta sight! Maybe we’ll play some Mexican tunes for Cinco de Mayo.

     On Saturday, May 14th from 7 – 10 pm, guitarist James Silberstein hosts a jazz night at the Irish Heritage Society, 131 Bridgeport Avenue, Milford, CT.  Joining me and James will be Darren Litzie on piano and Ben Bilello on drums.  Free, open to the public.  James is an amazing guitarist, you’ll enjoy this!

     On Thursdays, May 19th and May 26th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, I’ll be playing with guitarist Joe Kiernan at Marygold’s On Main, Newtown, CT.  The intimate lounge space is a great place to listen to music, and Joe’s a dynamic player with great chops and the wisdom of how to use them.

     On Friday, May 20th at 7 pm, guitarist Joe Carter and I will fill the air with Brazilian jazz at Best Video Film & Cultural Center, 1842 Whitney Ave., Hamden.  After all the years Joe and I have been playing together (too many to count), we’re having more fun and sounding better than ever! $10 cover.

     Much more to come in May, June and throughout the summer!  I’ll be sure to keep you posted… meanwhile I hope to see you at one of my gigs!

Thanks, Jeff Fuller
