We were saddened to hear about John Colaianni’s passing last week.
Quite the accomplished jazz pianist, John has been a featured performer on a number of events for and sponsored by The Jazz Society.
Contributions and donations in John’s memory to the South Jersey Jazz Society may be considered in lieu of flowers.
To advance and facilitate the promotion, presentation, education, and appreciation of America’s unique and diversified art form, jazz, in Somers Point and the surrounding communities of southern New Jersey.
