|***The Holiday Season***|
Can you believe it, its December already and Christmas is almost here!!! Well, we will just keep the hottest Jazz in town coming your way and continue through the holidays with the best live entertainment this City has to offer.
The last couple of weeks have really been phenomenal and when we say guest artists from around the world that's just what we mean. From Japan, violinist Mr. Micheal White and his lovely wife Le Sey, a Japanese Jazz vocalist performed with the ensemble. From Beijing, China clarinetist Dazhen Wu, from Paris France Jazz vocalist and Carol's good friend Frederick Tuxx, from Connecticut on trumpet Haneef plus all of the other outstanding artists that drop in each week.
This past Monday we got an opportunity to witness dueling guitars with Cory Stoot, Mike Fageros and "Hollywood"......who all put on a fabulous display of some of the finest guitar playing ever performed at one venue. Cory even brought a drummer & bass player in with him from Ireland, something that I know would have made Carol proud because of her Irish background.
Other artists included trombonist Al Jones, alto saxophonist Archie Mangrum, tenor saxophonist Bruce Harrison formerly of the Arnett Cobb ensemble, vocalist Anne LeSear, drummer Eddie Garfinkel, drummer Juan Abair plus those artists that did not get a chance to perform because there were so many musicians in the house, but they all promised to come back for their turn on the big stage!!!
Over the next few weeks, during this season, you can expect to see many great musicians that will be in town because of the holidays and they will definitely make the trek to The Carol Sanders' Monday Nite Jazz Jam for the hottest jam session in town!!!
This week look for the Tuba????
