Please join Wilton Library for a Sunday afternoon of swinging jazz with the Lenore Raphael Trio with Hilliard Greene on bass and Dwayne “Cook” Broadnax on drums. This group has performed and recorded together for years. The program will include well known jazz standards and a few Raphael original compositions.
Hot & Cool Jazz is brought to you by the generosity of the Estate of James (Tom) and Alice Brown.
Waiting-list spots only. Pre-registrants should arrive by 3:50pm to be guaranteed seating; wait-listed and walk-in registrants will be admitted after 3:50 pm if space is available. There will be a reception following the concert with CDs available for sale and signing.
Lenore Raphael is an internationally renowned jazz pianist, Steinway artist, jazz radio host, and jazz teacher. She has performed in many major jazz clubs and festivals including Dizzy’s at Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Blue Note, Birdland, Ronnie Scott’s in London, The Jazz Showcase in Chicago, The London Jazz Festival, and many more.
A British critic said that “Lenore Raphael’s performance at the London Jazz festival was very reminiscent of the great Oscar Peterson…not only in her technique but her sensitivity as a great accompanist” and Scott Yanow wrote in the LA Jazz Record: “Raphael is simply one of the best pianists in the jazz mainstream…she always swings.”
