Branford's Jazz-on-the-Green - Thursday & Friday Night
Posted on July 27th, 2017

​This week’s Branford Jazz performance will feature vocalist Shawnn Monteiro, legendary jazz drummer Jimmy Cobb and Javon Jackson on tenor sax.   With Monteiro’s lively phrasing and scat variations reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan, Cobb hailing from the Miles Davis bands, and Jackson’s long time association with Art Blakley and the Jazz Messengers, Thursday’s performance is sure to be a showstopper.  As it does every Thursday with Branford’s jazz-on-the-green concert series, the music starts at 6:30p on Thurdsay, the 27th.
And there will be more jazz on Friday evening.  Not letting the thunderstorms from a couple of weeks back stop them, PELIROJA will bring its fusion jazz sound to Branford on Friday the 28th, starting at 7pm. Please note the slightly later start time for this make-up concert.   The gifted ensemble of musicians includes Mike Eckroth on piano and keyboards, vocalist Jainardo Batista,  baritone saxophonist Morgan Price, Jonathan Powell on trumpet, drummer Max Goldman, and Ian Stewart on electric bass work their magic on stage and fuse together the sounds of Ethiopia, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and the Congo for a new jazz favor.   
For more details about these jazz greats and to whet your appetite for some of the best jazz around, please check out the schedule on the Branford Jazz website at, and remember to visit the website or Branford jazz on Facebook for updates and weather cancellations.  Please take a moment and share this jazz update with your customers, patrons, colleagues, family, friends and neighbors by forwarding this email or posting it on Facebook, Instagram and your social media network.
