Tuesday, May 2nd, 7:30 to 8:30 PM followed by an open jazz jam until 10:30 PM
The City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St, Northampton.

“Benny Sharoni, an Israeli-born, Boston-based tenor saxophonist, can energize even the largest, most lackluster venue with his big-toned sound and ebullient phrasing, packed with intense emotion and spirituality, a vibrant hybrid of the hip and the holy.” - The Hartford Current

A straight ahead player who fuses together the classic bop influences of Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Steve Grossman (among many others), Sharoni flavors his music with Latin rhythms and an energetic drive that delights audiences worldwide.

Upcoming Guest Artists:
5/2 - Benny Sharoni on tenor
5/9 - Gary Smulyan on baritone
5/16 - Erena Terakubo on alto
5/23 - Sheryl Bailey on guitar
