A Jazz Funeral for Christ"
Please join us for this special Good Friday Jazz Revelation service on 4/18 at 7:00 PM in our Sanctuary (Fifth Ave. at 29th Street). Leading our music will be Jeff Newell's New-Trad Octet. Combining the instrumentation of a New Orleans brass band and R&B, this free-wheeling ensemble brings its rhythm to American music from John Philip Sousa to Hank Williams and Louis Armstrong. From the Today Show to the Chicago Jazz Festival, diverse audiences have enjoyed this band's combination of old style rhythm and new music harmonies. www.new-trad.com
