Coming up soon – next Wednesday May 22 – Jon Burrs Birthday Jam! At the Metropolitan Room, NYC, 11:30 PM
This is going to be fun. I’ve asked some friends I’ve had the honor to work with to join me onstage for a cabaret/jazz jam session. Songs will be sung and solos will be played! Jazz and song, two of my favorite things (composition and musical exploration being another!)
The hour is late, on a school night… but not that late! This used to be the second set back in the day. I’m only turning “X”0 once….
I hope you can come.
It’s a worthy cause, as well. The Jon Burr Big Band wants to raise money to present new work by Jazz composers, and to obtain releases for existing recorded material in order to issue a recording. This is not only a party, it’s a benefit!
