One more once for Mingus

If you thought last Sunday was your only chance to catch the Richmond Mingus Awareness Project, you thought wrong.

Jazz tonight

This just in: The John Winn-tet is playing a free concert tonight at the Henrico Theatre from 7 to 9. The theatre requests you call in advance to reserve your seat. Check out some details below, courtesy Adam Larrabee:

We’ll be playing all kinds of jazz-oriented music, some singing, some swinging, some funk, some ballads, and maybe a surprise or two. Also a couple of funny, and poignant songs. The band will be:

John Winn: Sax & Vocals
Adam Larrabee: guitar
Randall Pharr: bass
Brian Caputo: drums.

There is a strong possibility that Daniel Clarke will drop in to play some piano as well (if his plane gets in from Minneapolis in time).

Catch Adam Larrabee This Weekend

Adam Larrabee’s compositions based on Bulgarian, Turkish and Middle Eastern music require intense focus and concentration to perform.

Larrabee (gtr), J.C. Kuhl (sax), John […]
