On Thursday evening, June 14, starting at 8:00, Jeff Newell's New-Trad Octet will present an evening of jazz at Bargemusic, located at Fulton Ferry Landing at the foot of Old Fulton Street. The Octet's repertoire includes original compositions as well as new, traditional style jazz arrangements of quintessentially American music such as Sousa marches, Louis Armstrong and W.C. Handy compositions, and, as a special salute to Brooklyn, Hymn Pan Alley, a suite consisting of themes based on hymns by composers who lived in Fort Greene in the 19th century.
This concert will initiate a series of Thursday evening jazz performances at Bargemusic. Tickets are $35, seniors $30 and full-time students $20.
