Other SJFS recaps: 2008, 2008 meet-and-greet, 2009, 2010, 2011, 20122013 Night 1, 2013 Night 2, 2014 Night 1, 2014 Night 2, 2016 Night 1, 2016 Night 2, 2017 Night 1, 2017 Night 2

To borrow guitarist Jay Dobbins’ song title, it was “That Time Again” on Friday – time for me to head up to Milford, Connecticut, for Jay Rowe‘s Smooth Jazz for Scholars benefit concert. This was the 13th year of SJFS and the third with two nights of shows. Unfortunately, I could only make the first night this year because of the WCWP Hall of Fame Ceremony on Saturday.

The headliners on Friday night were Peter White, Marion Meadows, and Vincent Ingala.

As always, Kevin McCabe had a few opening remarks:
MC42415001a

Then, Jay Rowe took the stage. Jay was on keyboards:
MC42415008a

Dave Anderson played bass:
MC42415039a

Trever Somerville on drums:

Steve Scales on percussion:

…and for nine songs, Rohn Lawrence on electric guitar:
