Free Jazz Concert This Friday

Since its inception in 2017, the Buzzards Bay Musicfest Swing Band has delighted audiences with jazz from different eras, genres, styles and origins. The commonality is the energetic and experienced approach of the instrumentalists as they interpret the truly American art form that is not only historically significant, but deeply rooted in the souls of all who appreciate good music. From a veteran of the Tony Bennett Band to a Berklee College of Music Professor and from the former piano accompanist for Sheila Jordan to the former drummer of the Artie Shaw Band, these ten artists and improvisors exhibit the spirit of the constantly evolving jazz tradition. Please come to hear the band pay homage to three jazz masters of the mid-Twentieth Century: Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk and Charles Mingus. The program “Miles, Monk and Mingus” will be presented on Friday, July 12, 7:30 pm, at the Fireman Performing Arts Center on the campus of Tabor Academy, 245 Front Street, Marion. Free admission.
