She will be accompanied by Chris Taylor, piano, Peter Kontrimas, bass, and Jim Lattini, drums. Next up on Sunday, November 20 is pianist Laszlo Gardony, who JazzTimes called “one of contemporary music’s original voices”, with an all-star Berklee quintet comprised of Bill Pierce, saxophone, John Lockwood, bass, Yoron Israel, drums, and introducing special guest, saxophonist Marco Pignataro, as it celebrates Gardony’s latest CD release “In Real Time”.
We return on Sunday, April 2, 2017 with “Strike Up The Band” starring Newton’s own, Paul Broadnax, the venerable pianist, vocalist and his regulars, Peter Kontrimas on bass and Les Harris, Jr. on drums. They are joined by the fluid sounds of saxophonist Fred Haas.
