With an intimate setting of candlelit tables, the Friday Night Jazz Club, featuring some of the Mid-Atlantic region's most seasoned artists, concludes the 3-part series on May 27 at Easton's historic Waterfowl Building. Performances begin at 7 p.m. and are presented by Jazz Alive, a charitable foundation based in Talbot County.
The Fred Hughes Trio-described by Jazz Times magazine as "talent, technique and taste"- closes out the Friday Night Jazz Club series on May 27. Hughes was raised in the music business and has performed on concert and festival stages around the world. He is joined by bassist Langosch, and percussionist Keith Killgo. Hughes formed the group in 1989 with Killgo who was a member of Joe Henderson's Quintet and an original member of the group The Blackbyrds founded by trumpeter Donald Byrd. Langosch has performed with a veritable who's who in the jazz world, including 20 years with Tony Bennett. Together, they create a level of musical performance that only comes with years of experience on stage.
The Waterfowl Building is at 40 S. Harrison St. Tickets are USD 28 and available at jazz-alive.org or at the door the day of the event. Students attend free with a Student ID. A cash bar will be available. Proceeds from ticket and concession sales support Jazz Alive's mission of providing educational support in developing future artists and preserving this great art form through school and community programs.
