Jazzing up the Classics
The Sherman Ensemble: "Jazzing Up the Classics." Artistic Director Eliot Bailen says: "This year we are featuring two exciting, young virtuosi, Eddie Barbash, alto saxophone, and Sam Reider, piano and accordion, whose brilliant original work we will be highlighting." They join a most talented group of accomplished New York musicians including Thomson Kneeland (double bass), Chris Parker (drums), Susan Rotholz, (flute) and Bailen (cello) in a program that features jazz-inspired renditions of works by Gershwin, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Ellington, and Dylan, along with original compositions by Parker, Reider and Kneeland.
