Monday Night Jazz

Monday Night Jazz / Bushnell Park, Hartford August 5th, 2013

    Enjoy Ct Live Orice Another great evening of Jazz under the stars in Bushnell Park featured the Orice Jenkins Septet opening for the Will Calhoun Trio.

orice bandOrice Jenkins, although very new to the Hartford Jazz scene, has dazzled all of us over and over again this summer at Bushnell Park with his expertise on the piano mostly as side man for other performers. However tonight he brought his own mix of musicians including two really talented female singers to just knock it out of the park. What is really amazing is that Orice is only 19. Hats off to this young musician who I am sure we will see a lot of in the future.

Enjoy Ct Live Orice So moving from the young lions of Hartford jazz we next are treated to the Will Calhoun Trio, Will on percussion, Charnett Moffett on Bass and Marc Cary on Piano / Keyboards. Enjoy Ct Live Orice This trio of truly seasoned musicians just took over the stage with an intensity that lasted from opening number to lights out.  I say this over and over, we are so lucky to have a free venue in Hartford that presents to us world class musicians in a setting that brings area jazz lovers together to share a summer’s night of music.

 Enjoy Ct Live Orice

Thank you Hartford Jazz Society and everyone involved who makes Monday Night Jazz happen.

 

Enjoy the Music.  Enjoy It Live !!!
