Aaron Weinstein Jazz Violin on Stage and Screen

Aaron Weinstein, the violinist you’ve seen here so many times with Bucky Pizzarelli, has this date to open the summer season.  He’s drafted Matt Munisteri to join him on guitar.  They’ve also assembled some archival film footage of the great jazz violinist/guitarist combos of the past, which mixes well with their presentation.  A good way to unwind after the holiday weekend.

Two Tenors: When Harry Allen Met Ken Poplowski

The Two Tenors have been booked, and they are not singers – except that each of them makes the tenor saxophone sing.  This is a rare chance (other than January’s ChickenFat Ball) to see and hear Harry Allen and Ken Peplowski playing together, this time for a whole evening.  They’re supported by Steve Ash at the piano and Joel Forbes on string bass, worthy players indeed.

Nicki Parrott and Friends

Bassist and “chick singer” Nicki Parrott is putting together an all-star group for this date.  Her theme is “Day In, Day Out,” a tribute to Doris Day. So far pianist Rossano Sportiello and sax star Harry Allen are on board, but that’s enough to merit reserving your seats.
