Jazz First with Vocalist/Instrumentalist Joey Placenti

Jazz First believes in the Great American Songbook, and feels those tunes should be preserved. Thus, much of the repertoire consists of jazz versions of this very listenable music by the masters (Porter, Gershwin, Rodgers, Strayhorn, etc.) written primarily in the first half of the twentieth century, with lyrical improvisations inserted for variety. But we also feature tunes written more recently, by composers such as Dave Frishberg, Mose Allison, and the bossa nova king, Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Whether you intend to eat, talk, sip, read or just relax, Jazz Continuum will draw from the Great American Songbook, the mainstream jazz of Miles Davis and John Coltrane, or the soft bossa novas of Jobim to create a relaxing but invigorating way to enjoy a full brunch or just coffee. Come and join us!

The Scott/Conley Trio

Appearing the first Friday of each month at The Java Room, the trio consists of Morgan Scott on piano, Ed Conley on drums and percussion and either Robert Rivera on cello and bass, or Sven Larson on bass. “We create adventurous music of the moment...”spontaneous composition” at times and traditional jazz standards at others. Sometimes a quick burst of an idea comes across one of our minds’ ear, and if we are free of ourselves we let that idea emerge.
