The Moonglow Trio
The Moonglow Trio performs classic jazz from the ’30s through the ’60s, including repertoire from the Great American Songbook, the gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt, and classic blues, swing, soul and pop. The group features violinist and vocalist Richard Chon, former sideman with Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks and Bruce Forman’s Cowbop. Guitarist Mike Wollenberg and bassist Bing Nathan add a deep infusion of artistry, intelligence and experience to the mix.
John Kalleen Group
The John Kalleen Group is a hot version of “Summertime,” a cool version of “Footsteps” and beautifully crafted originals! The JKG is a jazz quartet in the classic style, offering fresh compositions, echoing the admired hard bop and post-bop eras of the 50s and 60s, but infused with a modern, dynamic spark. And of course, they deliver swinging, spirited arrangements of the classics from those eras. An evening with the John Kalleen Group is a night of excellent musicianship, up-tempo energy and killer jazz with an incentive drive.
