A really good friend turned me onto True Blue Jazz this year - and I'm eternally grateful! This absolutely fantastic Jazz series is in its third year - an alternative event source to the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival. Eddie Sherman - with a major career and sold-out shows in his own background - met with Peggy Raley, a respected vocalist who relished Jazz. Together, they decided that their popular beach community needed to focus on "Straight Ahead" Jazz. The Great American Standards from 1900 to the present. They were looking for interpretation and innovation. They were tired of only ONE kind of Jazz being represented with the RBJF. So, they put their heads together and came up with a beautiful solution :)
Once again this year, True Blue Jazz is giving you a delicious taste of The Real Deal - including Eddie and Peggy in performance. Also involved: The Fred Hughes Trio (Fred returns to "Hybrid Jazz" on 10/27!) - and that trio includes Amy Shook on bass. Amy is wrapping up her electric stint with Diva Jazz as part of the important foreground of "Tappin' Thru Life" with Maurice Hines! This trio is making a repeat performance in the True Blue Jazz series - and they SMOKE the Clear Space Theatre! Also set to star: young Geoff Galante (GRACIOUS, wait until you get a load of this one on trumpet!) The Jackie Browne Jazz Nonet has a terrific reputation - Eddie can't say enough about Jackie - so this night is gonna sizzle, too! And Diane Schuur is booked for a very special night - the birthday of yours truly on 10/16! Woo HOO!
There's another reason why this lovely endeavor needs our support: what they do for the children in Sussex County, Delaware. True Blue's "Youth Jazz Educational Initiative" is enough to make you cry - it's that generous! Join us on 10/12 and get ready to be excited!
