Jazz Night

Jazz Night @ Pearl

 

The Jazz Rabbi and featured special guests every week.
Presented by the Jazz Society of Fairfield County

 

The Jazz Society of Fairfield County (JazzFC) was incorporated as a not for profit corporation to enrich the cultural life of Fairfield County by promoting the performance and appreciation of Jazz music through the presentation of free or low cost concerts by accomplished artists, to outreach to under-served audiences, and to provide educational and performance opportunities for student, amateur and emerging professional musicians.

JazzFC is also committed to the maintenance and preservation of its historic 1937 Steinway Model M grand piano, purchased and restored by Westport’s jazz fans! Formerly the house piano at the famous Village Gate jazz club in New York City, it has been played by a long list of iconic jazz musicians and inspires JazzFC’s efforts,

Saxophonist Rabbi Greg Wall has been a driving force in helping create a vibrant jazz scene here in Westport since relocating here in 2013. Drawing on his connections to the brightest stars in the jazz universe, cultivated during his 35 year career as an international performing and recording artist, Greg curates a weekly series that would be the envy of any jazz club in the country. Greg is the Artistic Director of JazzFC, and a real rabbi!
