South County Jazz 2022/23
This season's mainstream jazz lineup so far:
The ever-popular Bobby van Deusen on Friday, September 30, 2-4 PM as usual.
October 7 - Singer/drummer Patricia Dean with Jeff Phillips piano and Dave Trefethen bass and guitar.
October 21 - The Greg Nielson Sextet, with Greg on trombone and vocals, Dick Hamilton piano, Pete Barenbregge reeds, Vince DiMartino trumpet, Cameron Kayne bass and Dave Pruyn drums.
December 9, Piano legend Johnny Varro. Mentored by Willie "The Lion" Smith, and house piano at the famous Eddie Condon's in New York. He'll receive a special honor at the Suncoast Jazz Festival this year.
January 13, World-class singer-educator Stephanie Nakasian with her trio.
January 27, Peerless guitarist Nate Najar with Brazilian songstress Daniela Soledade. They'll be back from a two-month European tour celebrating Daniela's new hit CD "Pretty World."
For February 24, we were extremely lucky to get the superb but elusive pianist William Evans who will be with bassist Michael Ross and drummer Walt Hubbard. Evans lives and teaches in Switzerland most of the year and is rarely here. Not to be missed!
Trumpeter Bob Delfausse will bring his sextet to the lineup as well. Others are long-time Riverwalk bassist Don Mopsick with guitarist Frank Portolese. Popular Venice Tenor sax man Jim Wellen with swinging singer Dick Smolens
I'll have specific dates for all soon. All concerts will be Fridays from 2-4 PM at the Unitarian Congregation at 1971 Pinebrook Road where we have presented great artists for several years now. Admission will be $20 at the door.
