Jazz Kicks Off Spring Music Series At The Listening Room
The Listening Room at MindFull Books begins its spring music series this Saturday, April 7th, with a return performance of The Trude Witham Group, and a night of jazz.
Established in 2006, The Trude Witham Group (a quartet) plays a variety of swing standards, contemporary tunes, and originals. In addition to The Listening Room, the group has performed at many restaurants, clubs, and functions in eastern MA and southern NH, including the Acton Jazz Cafe, the Bull Run, Thirty One Main, The Java Room, Sunflowers Cafe, and summer concert series in Groton and Dunstable, MA., and Fitzwilliam, N.H. Band members are Witham on saxophone, Ted Osborne on guitar, Justin Maynard on bass, and Jack Morash on drums. All are veterans of the jazz scene, having played with many area groups over the years.
The Listening Room has become known as one of the best rooms in the Monadnock Region in which to perform. The combination of superb acoustics and an audience that comes to listen, makes for a very quiet performance venue in which musicians can be appreciated. The spring season (April - June) features a range of genres and individual styles. A partial listing includes Pitch Black Ribbons (Americana, Alternative, Blues), Lydia Fortune and Phil Nigro (Jazz, Blues), Bird Mancini (Pop Rock, Alternative), Joel Cage (Folk, Acoustic Rock), Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards (Americana, Country, Folk), Roger Salloom (Folk, Blues, Americana), Poor Howard Stith (12-string Barrelhouse Blues), Scott and Russell (Instrumental Acoustic/Electric Guitar), and The Terry Landis Band (World, Jazz).
The evening begins with an optional potluck at 7 p.m. (from savories to munchies, coffee and tea), and the performance starts at 8 p.m. A donation of $7 is requested for this show. Seating is limited. MindFull Books & Ephemera is located at 29 Main Street in Jaffrey, across from TD Bank. For more details, call 603-532-8300.
