I would like to introduce you to two unique programs that highlight NJ's Jazz Treasure - Bill Evans. .
We'd love to do either of these programs w/a trio, or a trio + Annette for the Tony Bennett/Bill Evans program. In addition, we're very flexible in regards to scheduling. Let me know what dates would work best for you. I also do my email marketing to all media, several meetup groups, and my own personal list to help you w/publicizing the date.
MY BILL EVANS – A Personal Conversation: This timely and fascinating program is based on the dialogues between Joel Zelnik and Bill Evans (born in Plainfield), a 7 time Grammy Award Winner, at the “Village Gate”in NYC, during the mid-1960’s. Joel had the great fortune of playing at the Top of the Gate in NYC alongside Evans. Signature Evans works are performed as Joel and his trio present informative insight into this jazz great: www.joelzelnik.com.
