South County Jazz with Morrie 2023/24

The Glenridge Performing Arts Center is now open after a three-year absence, and our first concert there last month, with Nate Najar's Holiday Tribute, was a near sellout.  There is also a beautiful new restaurant at the entrance.

The next event on Sunday afternoon, January 28, is the most ambitious and possibly the most exciting event I've ever produced in more than 20 years and more than 500 concerts!

         HARRY ALLEN, JEFF RUPERT & THE FLYING HORSE BIG BAND.   

Sunday, Jan 28, 2-4 PM.

Two of the finest tenor sax players in the world together, fronting the hard-driving, award-winning big band of UCF all-star players.  A fantastic first experience! 

DIEGO FIGUEIREDO.

Saturday Feb 17, 7:30-9:30 PM.

The immensely popular, GRAMMY nominated artist who ranks  among the world's greatest jazz guitarists.  His superb technique, timing and imagination have made him one of the most popular international names.  Diego’s energetic performances are well known in our area.  28 CDS, 3 DVDs and a book and two awards at the MONTREUX JAZZ FESTIVAL.

THE FOUR FRESHMEN.

Sunday, Feb 25, 2-4 PM

Making their fifth appearance for us, after four previous sellouts.  Hear the great classic originals and newly-added tunes built on the unique voicing that has made them among the most in demand combos for more than 70 years. Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, and Stan Kenton were among the first to notice the four guys who came out of Butler University.  Kenton got them a Capital Records contract and the rest is history.  A succession of magnificent musicians has carried on the tradition.
