Smooth Jazz for Scholars 2009 date/lineup February 17, 2009

Posted by Mike C. in Jazz, Music, Personal.

I spoke to Jay Rowe on the phone yesterday and he confirmed the lineup for this year’s Smooth Jazz for Scholars concert in Milford, Connecticut, along with the date.

The concert is set for Saturday, May 16.  The headliners are Chieli Minucci, Ken Navarro, Nelson Rangell, and Marion Meadows, who grew up in nearby New Haven.  They’ll be performing with Jay and his band, Best Kept Secret.  Besides Jay, the band consists of Rohn (pronounced “Ron”) Lawrence on guitar, Dave Livolsi on bass, and Trever Somerville on drums.

This will be my third year in attendance.  I’ll post a recap within a week afterward.

Meanwhile, click here, here, and here for a look back at last year’s concert, and here for Mary Bentley’s review in last June’s SmoothViews.
