WHEN: Tuesday, October 16th, 7:30 to 8:30PM followed by an open jazz jam session until 10:30 PM
WHERE: The City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton

It's been over a year since we last featured the great jazz bassoonist Michael Rabinowitz as our guest soloist. You will not only dig his unique sound but his approach to improvisation is fresh, fluid, explosive and full of surprises and, always swinging. Here is an excerpt from his bio:

Whether blowing bebop over a Mingus tune or freely improvising with Anthony Braxton, Michael Rabinowitz's contributions have changed the conception of what the bassoon can do.  He has recorded with Ira Sullivan, Red Rodney, Wynton Marsalis, John Hicks, Dave Douglas, Chris Potter and Joe Lovano. His festival appearances include Chicago, Montreal, Berlin, Tri-city, Tanglewood, San Francisco and Hollywood Bowl. Michael is a founding member of The Charles Mingus Orchestra which can be heard regularly at the Jazz Standard in NYC.

I hope you can join us for this very special treat. https://www.jazzbassoonist.com
