Lebanese Taverna at the White Hart on Thur. December 5th at 6:30 pm

Veteran world-class performers will take the audience on a varied ride through the jazz world of classics, works by under-appreciated composers, and originals by group members.  New Chordtet, the group assembled exclusively for this event, has played venues such as Lincoln Center, The Village Vanguard, The Knitting Factory, Smalls, Smoke, Cornelia St Cafe as well as major festivals in the US and abroad.  Collectively the musicians are on over 100 CD's on such labels as Blue Note, Polygram, Concord, Clean Feed, and many more.

 

Throughout an evening of rich jazz and cocktails, this quintet, whose members are also acclaimed educators, will guide the audience to better appreciate this music genre with interwoven commentary.  It will be a memorable evening for both serious jazz aficionados as well as novices who want to know more.
