Jazz upstairs at the Avalon during the Waterfowl Festival Nov. 14, 2009

There's a beautiful new room for music on the second floor of the Avalon. The Stoltz listening room is a small venue for small ensembles, presumably any kind of music, although that's a guess. Whatever the case, I'll be playing there with percussionist Felix Contreras (from the No-No Nonette), bassist Tom Anthony (from the Van Williamson Trio, which also includes Felix), and violinist David Schulman. We'll be playing a selection of jazz standards in a fairly spontaneous manner--that is, we haven't rehearsed that much. So it should be an interesting and fun evening. We're playing two sets, beginning at 8:00 PM. A good day to be in Easton, since it's also the weekend of the Whatevereth Annual Waterfowl Festival, a celebration of life on the Eastern Shore. Ticket information for the concert is available by calling the Avalon box office at 410-822-7299. Ticket information for the Waterfowl Festival can be found at waterfowlfestival.org. Hope to see you there.
