Northampton Jazz Workshop features Woodstock, VT saxophonist Michael Zsoldos

WHAT: Woodstock, VT saxophonist Michael Zsoldos
WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 5th from 7:30 to 8:30
WHERE: City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA

This week are pleased to welcome back after a long hiatus saxophonist, educator and composer Michael Zsoldos from Woodstock, VT. I recently heard a concert by Michael and his quartet at the Vermont Jazz Center and was truly knocked out by his feel and tone. The theme was a tribute to the great Ben Webster and Michael nailed Ben's sound and then some. He of course has his own sound but his playing does reflect a deep love of the tenor masters of the past.

Joining us on drums will be NYC drummer Brian Shankar Adler. I've heard great things about Brian, a very eclectic percussionist who started his studies at 5 years old in an ashram in India followed by jazz and percussion studies at New England Conservatory and then....

The concert set starts at 7:30, followed immediately by the jam session until 10:30. $5 per person room charge for the concert set. City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA. 413-584-4830
