The Greg Howard Up-Tet
Monday October 11, 2010, 7pm
Greg Howard’s chosen instrument, The Chapman Stick, is by no means a traditional jazz instrument. However in Greg’s nimble hands, it can conjure every style of music, from swinging Thelonius Monk standards to Greg’s wonderful Latin flavored compositions, to jazz-rock fusion. Greg is kicking off this year’s jazz marathon in style with his remarkable new band, The Greg Howard Up-tet. This group features a distinctive blend of area talents, including Darrell Rose on African percussion, Gina Sobel on flute, James McGlaughlin on drums, and special guest John D’earth on trumpet.
