Northampton Jazz Workshop features clarinetist Darryl Harper

WHAT: Northampton Jazz Workshop featuring clarinetist Darryl Harper 
WHEN: Tuesday, April 3rd, 7:30 to 8:30PM followed by an open jazz jam until 10:30 PM  
WHERE: City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton.

This week we are presenting for the first time clarinetist and educator Darryl Harper. Originally from Philadelphia and currently the chair of the music department at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Darryl is just finishing a year here as guest faculty at Amherst College.

From Northampton Jazz Workshop's Paul Arslanian:
"I am personally excited about playing with Darryl because it turns out he and I have worked with many of the same musicians from Philadelphia. While living in Philly I was the house pianist for a weekly session at the 23rd Street Cafe and used to sit in at another great session at a club called Ortlieb's. I think those experiences had a hand in motivating me to start this series. I hope you can join us and stick around for the jam session and also, please join us on April 10th to remember Scott Mullett and celebrate our 8th anniversary."

Upcoming Guest Artists:
4/3 - Darryl Harper - clarinet
4/10 - A Celebration of the life of Scott Mullett featuring Draa Hobbs on guitar and many, many others. This will also be the Workshops 8th anniversary celebration.
