Jon Weiss and Sol Yaged at Alvin & Friends


Friday, September 19, 2014
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


On Friday, September 19th pianist Jon Weiss will be joined by jazz legend Sol Yaged on clarinet. At 91, Yaged has been playing clarinet continuously in New York clubs since 1942 (with the exception of three years in the Army during World War II). Although grounded in classical technique, Yager turned down a classical career to play jazz in New York nightclubs with such musicians as Phil Napolean, Coleman Hawkins, Red Allen and Jack Teagarden.  The New York Times wrote that Yaged “plays with a creamy, elegant tone that evokes Goodman’s lyricism” – and indeed Yaged served as a consultant on Benny Goodman’s musical style for the 1956 film,  The Benny Goodman Story, teaching Steve Allen to mimic Goodman. Yager will be paired with versatile pianist Jon Weiss – who has been performing in New York clubs since 1979 – a duo that promises a delightful night of music. No cover charge, but tables are reserved for diners and there is a two-drink minimum at the bar.
