Smalls Jazz

Dear Friends:
We have an exciting week of music coming up starting on Monday.  Saxophonist Jaleel Shaw will be coming in with his group (Lawrence Fields on piano, Joe Martin on bass and Jonathan Blake on drums) to perform and also celebrate his birthday.  Happy Birthday, Jaleel!
Tuesday and Wednesday we have a very special appearance from jazz legend Scott Hamilton.  If you've never heard Scott you should take this opportunity as his New York concerts are fairly rare.  We will also be recording both nights for our label, SmallsLIVE.  Scott's group is featuring the wonderful pianist Rossano Sportiello, bassist Hassan Shakur and drummer Chuck Riggs.  This will definitely be an evening of swinging jazz and romantic ballads.
On Thursday we have a double bill for Valentine's Day.  First is a set from Camila Meza who is an amazing singer and guitarist.  She has a fantastic quartet with Greg Hutchinson on drums, Aaron Goldberg on piano and Aidan Carrol on bass.  Following Camila is the adventurous saxophonist  John Ellis and his quartet featuring Rueben Rogers on bass and Obed Calvaire on drums with Aaron Goldberg doing a double shift.
This weekend features guitarist Mark Whitfield and his family band - literally!   Mark Whitfield Jr. on drums and Davis Whitfield on piano.   On Saturday, our 7:30 PM concert features pianist Richard Sussman and his group.  This is another rare appearance from Richard with a spectacular quintet featuring Joe Magnarelli on trumpet and Tim Ries on tenor.
I also hope that you remember to check out our afternoon jam sessions which run on Wed - Saturday, often with no cover or a reduced one.  This are always mellow and enjoyable.  If you bring your horn you can play and interact with the musicians of Smalls.
As always, I appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the club.
