The Larry Newcomb Quartet
Sunday, September 25 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Friends of the Bronxville Public Library present the Larry Newcomb Quartet
Bronxville resident Larry Newcomb was not content with a PhD in music history, moving on to study under Bucky Pizzarelli, Pat Martino, Howard Roberts and others. There’s plenty of technique here – he is, after all, a respected teacher as well as a performer. The Quartet’s intention is to provide enjoyment and beauty! This aim is achieved through keeping the melody up front and underpinning it with sensitive but powerful touches from drummer Jimmy Madison and Bronxville’s own bassist Dmitri Kolesnik. On Hoagy Carmichael’s ballad Stardust, Eric Olsen’s exceptional piano work and Larry’s guitar converse easily like old friends. It’s six minutes of sheer relaxation! The Quartet also grooves hard tackling smart originals as well as well-loved jazz standards by pioneers as diverse as Charlie Parker and Carla Bley. Experience the Larry Newcomb Quartet in your local surroundings – the Yeager Room at the Bronxville Public Library.
The concert is FREE and refreshments will follow with a chance to meet the musicians.
