Saturday, November 10, 7:30-10pm at Bird & Beckett
Jeff Sanford’s Cartoon Jazz Nonet is a smaller version of the Cartoon Jazz Orchestra, which Jeff Sanford organized in 2003 to play the eccentric, highly entertaining and challenging music of American composer Raymond Scott. The music of Lenny Carlson who has been writing originals for the group for the last ten years is featured along with the music of Charlie Shavers/John Kirby, Jelly Roll Morton, and Duke Ellington.
This is a Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund event where each musician will be paid $100 in advance, regardless of ticket sales. Jazz in then Neighborhood makes this possible by subsidizing 40% of their pay. Bird & Beckett and the Jazz Philanthropists Union guarantees the rest. For tickets and other information, please contact Bird & Beckett.
