Event Details

Join us at Common Ground Coffeehouse at the First Unitarian Society for a performance by The Hastings Jazz Collective, an all-star supergroup of jazz artists who all live locally in Hastings or Dobbs Ferry. Appearing will be saxophonist Tim Armacost, guitarist Jay Azzolina, pianist David Janeway, bassist Harvie S, and drummer Ron Vincent. The group came together in 2008—making their debut at Common Ground Coffeehouse at the First Unitarian Society. “A couple of years ago, I decided to try to put together a band, do some gigs together, do some recording and see what we can do,” said pianist David Janeway. “I wanted to form collaborative group where everyone contributes to the repertoire. It’s a chance to work on composing as a workshop, which is different than just writing, since this is specific to the band and is a much more worthwhile and meaningful experience.”

Over the course of their individual careers, each member of the group has worked with an impressive array of legendary artists. Among them are a virtual who’s who of contemporary jazz: Kenny Barron, Randy Brecker, Arnett Cobb, Jimmy Cobb, Bill Charlap, Jr. Cook, Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, Paquito D’Rivera, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Herb Ellis, Art Farmer, Sonny Fortune, Bill Frisell, Dave Grusin, Slide Hampton, Roy Hargrove, Milt Jackson, Sheila Jordan, Lee Konitz, John Lewis, Joe Lovano, Herbie Mann, Wynton Marsalis, Helen Merrill, Gerry Mulligan, “Fathead” Newman, Rufus Reid, Carol Sloane, Dakota Staton, Sonny Stitt, Dr. Billy Taylor, Clark Terry, Grover Washington, Kenny Werner, and many more.

Tickets: $18 in advance, $20 at the door
