7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan is backed by a hot organ trio, with Pat Bianchi on organ, guitarist Peter Bernstein, and drummer Carmen Intorre creating a hard-swinging, bluesy romp full of energy and melodic invention. It’s refreshing enough to hear a baritone saxophone taking the lead role at all, in any jazz context, but to hear it fronting an organ group is so pleasurable it makes one wonder why it’s such a rare occurrence. Fans of vintage soul-jazz will find much to tap their feet to.
~ Excerpt from a review of their album “Smul’s Paradise” by Phil Freeman for allmusic.com.
Program update: Gary’s student ensemble from the SUNY Purchase Jazz Studies Program will play a short pre-concert set. Come early and enjoy!
