AUGUST 15th at 4PM: The Bob Sparkman Trio
No Sevenars summer would be complete without the glorious jazz collaboration of clarinetist Bob Sparkman, pianist Jerry Noble, and bass guitarist Kara Noble! The trio will lead you on a journey to many nostalgic destinations of the American Songbook. Tunes like “Stars Fell on Alabama,” “Can’t Get Indiana Off My Mind,” “Moonlight in Vermont,” and “Basin Street Blues” are only a few stops on this marvelous musical tour. Bob’s golden clarinet stylings reflect his experience at the last Eddie Condon’s Club and his playing with The Jazzmen, The Bourbon Street Six, the Gotham Jazz Band, and others (including a gig with Fats Waller’s trumpeter Herman Autry). Clifton “Jerry” Noble Jr., Bob’s longtime collaborator, brings his wealth of musical gifts as internationally known composer and pianist (on staff at Smith) and adds his miraculous musical telepathy. With Kara Noble on bass, this tour is in good hands. Bon Voyage! Program subject to change – please check for updates!
Admission is by suggested donation (suggested $20 per person), by cash or check at the door. No tickets or reservations are required or accepted. Complimentary refreshments are offered at intermission. All music lovers welcome, though we ask that children (and adults) be able to sit quietly so as not to disturb others.
