Takin' It To The Park + A Great Coming Attraction
Opening the show at 6 p.m. will be trumpeter Haneef Nelson and his group. In case of rain, the concert moves indoors to the Asylum Hill Congregational Church. For more information, go to hartfordmondaynightjazz.com.
The final set of the night belongs to saxophonist (and Bloomfield, CT native) Jimmy Greene. Mr. Greene, who graduated from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford, now teaches at Western Connecticut State University. He'll be playing a solo set which is something the tenor and soprano saxophonist does not do very often (if ever). This should be quite a fascinating evening. For more information and reservations, go to www.buttonwood.org.
