The world-class tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton with the brilliant cornet soloist Ruby Braff, accompanied by Paul Schmelling, piano; Whit Browne, bass, and Jim Gwin, drums.

Though Hamilton and Braff have made a half dozen records together, they don’t get an opportunity to play together very often. The last time was in Wales two years ago. But when they do work together magic happens. "Ruby truly inspires me," Hamilton said. "I love to hear his solos. He plays at a very high level and he brings out my creativity," Hamilton continued. Braff feels the same way about Hamilton. "Scott is wonderful. I love him. When we play, even if its been years before, we pick up where we left off," Braff said. This concert will be one of those rare moments that jazz fans dream about. Don’t miss this one! The solos will be magnificently creative.

A Tribute to Louis Armstrong with Arvell Shaw, Armstrong’s long time bass player, and his band, including Byron Stripling, the man who played Armstrong in the musical, "Satch."

Armstrong’s music will be played by the band, and Shaw will tell stories of his many years on the road with Armstrong.

The Bossa Nova  The internationally renowned saxophonist Harry Allen with an all-Brazilian band, including vocals by Fonseca.

Stephen Getz, the son of Stan Getz, the great exponent of Brazilian jazz, says that Allen sounds like "dear old dad."

Allen is a great player, much in demand throughout the world. "Sheer excellence," says Gene Lees, who wrote most of the English words to Carlos Jobim’s songs. "Outstanding," says jazz critic Leonard Feather. "Fantastic," Steve Allen said. "Superb," says Jazz Journal International.

Harry and this Brazilian band is not to be missed. Very beautiful and sophisticated music.
