Harvey Diamond & Jon Dreyer

Legendary pianist Harvey Diamond and bassist Jon Dreyer perform jazz standards and songs from the Great American Songbook, "honing gems...into personal statements that leave us yearning for more... Diamond is a master of both melody and harmony much like his predecessors in the legacy of jazz piano, Bill Evans and Lennie Tristano."

The duo will be performing for us the evening of every 2nd Saturday of the month as well as every Saturday brunch time. music.jondreyer.com

The Music of Fats Waller

Date: 
Monday, July 8, 2013 - 6:00pm

A light-hearted entertainer and a very serious musician, Thomas Fats Waller mastered the stride piano and wrote some of jazz’s enduring, endearing tunes. Hear Honeysuckle Rose, Ain’t Misbehavin’ and A Handful of Keys in the hands of pianist Ehud Asherie, vocalist Allen Harris, and guitar master Doug Wamble, under the direction of that multifarious fiddler and reedman, Andy Farber.

Morgan Scott Trio

Appearing the first Friday of each month at The Java Room, the trio consists of Morgan Scott on piano, Sven Larson on bass and Ed Conley on drums, percussion. “We create adventurous music of the moment...”spontaneous composition” at times and traditional jazz standards at others. Sometimes a quick burst of an idea comes across one of our minds’ ear, and if we are free of ourselves we let that idea emerge. The rest of the group will react to the idea, or the idea presented exists as a counterpoint to whatever is already going on in the music.
