The South Jersey Jazz Society is proud to announce the 3rd in a four part series sponsored in part by OceanFirst Bank.
This 4 part series tries in some small way to capture the music that made the Club Harlem in Atlantic City a very special part of the jazz history of this area.
On August 8th at Clancy’s by the Bay the Giacomo Gates with John Di Martino on piano and Ed Howard on bass will make a very special and rare appearance here in South Jersey.
In a recent article in “Jazz Times”, Christopher Loudon writes, “There are two contenders for coolest, sharpest male vocalist around…and Giacomo Gates is one. Gates now 67, waited until his 40”s to pursue music full time, but quickly emerged as a deeply insightful vocal acrobat, preternaturally skilled in scat and vocals, and a first rate storyteller.”
John di Martino, Composer, Arranger, Pianist, has recorded many CD’s for Venus Records with his “Romantic Jazz Trio” Noted for his versatility, John has performed and recorded with such notables as Kenny Burrell, James Moody, Joe Lovano, David “Fat Head” Newman, Pat Martino, Paquito D’Rivera and Houston Person.
Ed Howard, currently resides in New York City and is a highly sought after bassist. Ed has also had a long-standing tenure with the Roy Haynes Quartet. Since joining Mr. Haynes in 1982, Ed has had the opportunity to tour extensively and record three CD’s with this grand master of the drums. Ed also sights Clifford Jordan as a major influence in his musical development.
This one set performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Those who would like to order food should be seated by 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for South Jersey Society members and $20 for non-members.
