JAZZ IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD: another evening of great jazz

On Friday September 13th, 2013 please join us for an evening of jazz featuring some of the best musicians in the Bay Area.

Guarneri_Jazz-Mario_and_JohnSince 2012, The Emerald Tablet has hosted top notch jazz evenings every second Friday under the stewardship of master trumpet player and teacher Mario Guarneri, and his organization Jazz in the Neighborhood. Please click here to see some examples of the talented musicians who have performed at The Emerald Tablet under the aegis of Jazz in the Neighborhood.

This month we’re featuring Darren Johnston on trumpet, Lorca Hart on drums, and Sam Bevan on bass. Also, two students from the UCJazz Program at Berkeley, Chris Allen and Trevor Orr, will be playing as a piano and alto sax duo to open the evening. Trevor is a long-time student of saxophone great Charles McPherson, and Chris has studied with Bay Area great Peter Horvath. In addition, trumpeter Mario Guarneri will be joining the trio of Darren, Lorca, and Sam during the performance, which will be recorded by Jim Bennet of KCSM radio for broadcast on his show In the Moment. This event is sponsored by JitN, Emerald Tablet, and the American Federation of Musicians.

The Bay Area is home to many incredible jazz musicians who’ve devoted their lives to developing their craft and attaining the highest artistic levels. Jazz in the Neighborhood is an important step towards creating an environment where these accomplished professionals can nurture a great American art form in dignity and respect, while delighting audiences of all ages.The Emerald Tablet is proud to provide its resources, on a regular basis, to help this dream to become a reality. Please join us every second Friday and be part of a grassroots jazz revolution!
