The South Jersey Jazz Society will host two very special jazz Christmas concerts on December 11 and 18 at 7:30 p.m. at Gateway Playhouse, 738 Bay Ave. Somers Point.
Performing will be the Ed Vezinho/Jim Ward Big Band with special guest vocalist Cathy Rocco.
This concert will feature the music made famous by the TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.
The Ed Vezinho/Jim Ward 16 piece Big Band is made up of some of the premier jazz artist in the tri-state area.
Joining the band for this much anticipated holiday celebration will be Resonance Record artist Cathy Rocco. Cathy’s stylistic interpertations create a solid interaction with the melody, and are uniquely hers.
“The Charlie Brown Christmas” featured the music of pianist, composer Vince Guaraldi. The music and the TV special have become a perfect blend of jazz and the holiday spirit.
