ON THE MOVE (WITH THE SAME SUPERB MUSIC): WELCOME THE ALLEGHENY JAZZ FESTIVAL 2014!

I just found out that the September weekend jazz extravaganza I’ve been calling “Jazz at Chautauqua” for the last nine years is on the move to a new city.  The reasons are too complex for me: I’m just a simple fellow with a tripod, a camera, and a notebook.  But I know the results will be good!

However, the same stellar musicians will find themselves in a congenial place on September 19 – 21, 2014, for the ALLEGHENY JAZZ FESTIVALunder the very generous and astute leadership of Nancy Hancock Griffith, a good and trusted friend of the late Joe Boughton.

Visit www.alleghenyjazz.org to find out what’s happening.  I will keep you posted as soon as I know specifics.  Tell your friends who don’t live through the computer!  And if tell the Allegheny Jazz folks your contact information, you would be assured of getting the news while it is like the music, which is to say hot.

Speaking of hot: how about Andy Schumm, cornet; Dan Levinson, reeds; John Sheridan, piano; Kerry Lewis, string bass; Pete Siers, drums (with a visit from Dan Block on the final song):

OH BABY! (the Wolverines’ song, not the later one):

A SAILBOAT IN THE MOONLIGHT (for Billie and Lester):

RUSSIAN LULLABY:

SWEETHEARTS ON PARADE (more a romp than a stately procession):

I’ll see you at the ALLEGHENY JAZZ FESTIVAL next September 19-21, wherever it finds itself.

May your happiness increase!
