Our October issue of Jersey Jazz is out - do you have your copy?

  • We have been so lucky to have so many wonderful jazz festivals in New Jersey recently – if you didn’t make it to the fantastic Morristown Jazz and Blues Festival, this article will be right up your alley!
  • Have you attended any of the jazz events we co-sponsor at the 1867 Sanctuary in Ewing? NJJS members receive $5 discount, and your contribution also goes towards preserving this beautiful historic building. The website calendar lists all the upcoming events!
  • Pianist Ted Rosenthal is Schaen Fox’s interviewee this month. He loves being a Steinway artist, has won the Monk International Piano Competition, and was a member of the last Gerry Mulligan Quartet. But that’s not all … you’ll want to grab your copy for all the details.
  • No doubt you’re familiar with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, and George Gee’s Orchestra – but have you been into Manhattan to see Glenn Crytzer’s Orchestra? In the interview, he gives a code for a 25% discount for NJJS members to use at his Big Band events for a limited time.
  • The Luna Stage in West Orange commences their 2016-2017 season this month – don’t miss Claudio Roditi’s performance!
  • There are a number of jazz festivals in NJ still to come – including the Exit Zero Jazz Festival in Cape May and, perhaps a little closer to home for most, the James Moody Jazz Festival at NJPAC – full details are in your copy of Jersey Jazz.
  • Joe Lang has reviewed a number of jazz CDs for our listening pleasure – there’s something for everyone, and it’s not too soon to start stockpiling holiday gifts for jazz lovers!
In addition to this brief taster, there are many other interesting pieces in this month’s issue, as well as ads for dozens of opportunities to enjoy live jazz in New Jersey and its surrounds. To receive your copy of the Jersey Jazz Journal, and to take advantage of other benefits including discount admission to events, become a member by clicking on the Membership tab above!
