My Next Gig: Sun., Oct. 18, at Twins Jazz

Jeff with Wayne Wilentz on piano, James King on bass and Jim West on drums, July 2014.

So many important events occurred on October 18 throughout history. In 1873, for example, Columbia, Princeton, Rutgers and Yale Universities set the first rules for collegiate football (what are their rankings this year?); in 1929, Canadian law finally recognized women as “Persons”; in 1954, Hurricane Hazel (the third that year) became the most severe ever to hit the U.S.;  in 1961, the film adaptation of “West Side Story” was released; in 1968, police found 219 grains of cannabis resin in John and Yoko’s apartment; and, in 1980, Brooke Alexander, 18, of Hawaii, was crowned Miss World USA. All true, according to the Internet.

I won’t promise anything quite as auspicious, but we should have fun on Sunday, October 18, 2015, when I’ll be back at Twins Jazz in perform two sets at 8 and 10 p.m.

This time I’ll be singing with Wayne Wilentz, one the most talented and, consequently, busiest musicians around, who will burn up the piano keys and keep me from running off the rails. His playing alone will be a huge treat for everyone.

Also, I’ve invited special guest Cheryl Hurwitz to add some of her great violin stylings on a few tunes.

For a better idea of what you’ll hear on September 10, click here to listen to my recordings.

There’s a cover charge of merely $10.  Doors open at 7 p.m. The music starts at 8, and then again at 10 p.m.

By the way, I’ll be back at Twins on Thursday, November 19 and Thursday, December 10. Mark your calendars.

Please come on down. I hope to see you there.
