A Hartford Courant Recommended Jazz Concert for Autumn 2015!

"Guitar lovers can't go wrong checking out Gene Bertoncini," says Owen McNally in The Hartford Courant this month. "Bertoncini's a meticulous master craftsman with an architect's sense of structure and melodic line. He unveils his beautiful, musical blueprints with his trio at Pizzeria Lauretano, a jazz-friendly Italian bistro in Bethel."

We always welcome the return of Gene Bertoncini, one of the pre-eminent guitarists in jazz today. A New York City resident, he has played with Tony Bennett, Wayne Shorter, Lena Horne, Benny Goodman, Paul Desmond, and Buddy Rich among others. JAZZIZ Magazine awarded him Top Acoustic Guitar album of 2004, and the Washington Post called his solo NYC gig the best jazz concert of the year (1999). His special love is the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Latin and Brazilian jazz. Gene is joined by one of the top rhythm sections in the area, bassist Rick Petrone and drummer Joe Corsello. Rick also hosts "The Jazz Sound"  Monday afternoons 1-4pm, on WPKN 89.5FMa great local station.

Please join us for a reception 
of an exhibit of drawings
by Stephanie Fenwick

​Saturday, October 10, from 1 to 4

“This is a series of drawings 
that I made every day during the last year 
that Mimi, my beloved cat, and I spent together. 
It’s about love and loss, and the miracle 
of transforming grief into joy 
and a celebration of life.”
