Updated on 8/20/13 with two videos.

If at first you succeed, try to duplicate the success the following night.  That was the task for the second night of Jay Rowe‘s eleventh annual Smooth Jazz for Scholars concert.

Kevin McCabe was the first to speak to the audience just before 8PM:
MC42713003a

As you can see behind Kevin, before Jay and the house band came out, the show began with a performance by the Foran High School Jazz Band, under the direction of Jessica Shearer.  Their song featured a solo by Jay.  Pictures of what was visible can be seen later in this post.

The house band was made up of Jay on keyboards:

Jerry Brooks on bass:

Trever Somerville on drums:

Steve Scales on percussion:

The show took place on Steve’s birthday.

…and for eight of the songs, Rohn Lawrence on guitar:
