ISTHISJAZZ

We triumphantly return on August 1st for another round of great original jazz at AS220. This time around we’ll be featuring two artists we’ve seen before making their returns to our stage. First on the night is The Leland Baker Quartet , a dynamic group of diverse players hail from all over new England. Lead by Providence local Leland Baker, each musician brings their own unique voice packing power, elegance, and emotion into meaningful melodies and rhythms. Headlining our August 1st show we are delighted to once again have The Greg Dudzienski Trio. Greg has played all over the world with a number of great ensembles and even bigger names. Take it from sax master Jerry Bergonzi who describes Dudzienski as having “a great warm sound and his melodic way of playing is all heart”. Seven musicians, two groups, one stage, and yet another killer night of jazz in the capitol.

 

Friday August 1st at 9pm, only $10 admission.
