Warming Winter Jazz

Hi All,

My friend and fellow musician Dave Thorne Scott brings us news of 3 upcoming Jazz concerts right in and around Cambridge that are T accessible and will be super fun.  Check them out.  An email from Dave is below.

Some exciting, exciting stuff coming up soon. People always accuse me of playing more in the exurbs and ignoring the area inside 128. These next few shows are for you. There’s one show with a trio, one with an 18-piece big band, and one with a California-based vocal quintet. All within easy car/subway/walking distance. Heat up the winter with some live music. Come on now! You know you always have more fun when you go out.

The Oberon and Ryles shows are truly one-of-a-kind. Be sure to give them your highest consideration.

Happy new year! Here’s wishing you and yours a musical and harmonious 2016.

Best,
David

Jazz and sushi! What an amazing combination. Loud, raucous, fun Asian-fusion restaurant with great music. Come enjoy an evening with us. If we’re lucky, we’ll get snowed in and have to party all night.

Ryles Jazz Club
212 Hampshire Street
Cambridge, MA 02139

With VOCALOGY

8:30pm – 11:30pm
$15

I have been a part of this outstanding vocal group for almost 20 years. The other singers are based in California (yes, this is that group I have told you about) so we don’t get to perform that much. But fate has decreed a New England tour for Vocalogy — the first since 2007. We are headlining some educational festivals, but this Ryles show is our only public performance in the Boston area.

Do you love vocal harmony? Vocalogy is breathing new life into vocal jazz. Building on the tradition of groups like The Hi-Lo’s and The Singers Unlimited, Vocalogy is setting a new standard with intricate original arrangements of surprising songs, as well as entertaining solo features with world-class vocal improvisation.

The quintet got its start as an artist-in-residency program under Grammy nominee and Jazz Education Network Lifetime Award winner Phil Mattson, arranger for Manhattan Transfer, Chanticleer, The Real Group, The Dale Warland Singers and The Four Freshmen.
