NAT ADDERLEY JR. LAUNCHES NEW JAZZ SERIES IN NEW ROCHELLE
(Published: April 03, 2014)

Alvin & Friends Restaurant in New Rochelle is proud to announce a Friday night jazz series in the intimate Roscoe's Room launching on April 4th with the Nat Adderley Jr. Trio, and continuing with groups led by master tenor saxist Lew Tabackin; Chicago songstress Tammy McCann, featuring Grammy winner Laurence Hobgood; and trombonist Vincent Gardner of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. The series is curated and co-produced by New Rochelle residents Greg Thomas and Jewel Kinch-Thomas of G&J Productions.

Roscoe's Room will serve Alvin's signature Southern and Caribbean flavored cuisine and cocktails in the 80-seat venue. The evening will have two sets, 7:30 and 9:30 pm, and will feature a caliber of artistry in New Rochelle most often associated with Manhattan jazz venues.
"Most of our productions have been in New York City, so we're especially happy to produce the fine art of jazz in New Rochelle at one of the most acclaimed new restaurants in the Hudson Valley," says Jewel of G&J Productions. "We've known Alvin and Gwen Clayton since they opened their first location," adds Greg. "In fact, the very first time I met Alvin, the great trumpeter Clifford Brown was being broadcast in the restaurant. I knew I was in the right place right then."

April 4 NAT ADDERLEY JR. QUARTET

Kicking off the Friday night jazz series in Roscoe's Room, Grammy nominated arranger and pianist Nat Adderley Jr. will front a close-knit, swinging trio. The former Musical Director for Luther Vandross comes from a famous jazz family (father Nat Sr. was trumpeter in a group led by his uncle Cannonball Adderley), so he's returned to his roots and will sing too. His jazz renditions of standards and R&B classics are instant crowd-pleasers!

Lew Tabackin has been long recognized as a virtuoso for his hard-driving, full-throated tenor sax work and his unique flute styling. He's played in the big bands of Clark Terry, Duke Pearson, and Thad Jones and Mel Lewis as well as George Wein's Newport All-Star Band, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, and his own renowned orchestra, the Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band.
