Other SJFS recaps: 2008, 2008 meet-and-greet, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 Night 2, 2014 Night 1, 2014 Night 2, 2015 Night 1, 2016 Night 1, 2016 Night 2, 2017 Night 1, 2017 Night 2

Updated on 8/20/13 with two videos.

This weekend, I made my annual pilgrimage to Milford, Connecticut, for Jay Rowe‘s eleventh annual Smooth Jazz for Scholars concert.  For the first time in SJFS history, there were two nights of music to enjoy.  This is a recap of Night 1.

Kevin McCabe had some opening remarks:
MC42613037a

…and so did Jay Rowe:
MC42613044a

Jay played his keyboards:
MC42613040a

His house band was rounded by Jerry Brooks on bass:
MC42613042a

Trever Somerville on drums:
MC42613041a

…and Steve Scales on percussion:
MC42613060a

The structure of this recap is different from previous SJFS recaps.  Instead of combining the set list with pictures from the corresponding songs, I’ll list the set list first.  Here it is:
