Jazz Vespers

April 18. Saxophonist and flautist Rob Scheps certainly gets around. Over the span of his career, he's played with luminaries like the recently departed Clark Terry, Mulhal Richard Abrams, Jaki Byard, and Buddy Rich, and in any given month can be found playing in New York, Kansas, Oregon, and who knows where else. But somehow amid all the jet-setting he's kept the regular Jazz Vespers gig he curates going strong for several years now at the historic First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown, which was built in 1868. For this episode of the series, Scheps will be joined by renowned drummer Eliot Zigmund, who's performed with the likes of Bill Evans, Chet Baker, and Stan Getz; and ace guitarist John Stowell, who's worked with Dave Liebman, Paul Horn, Billy Hart, and others. 5:30pm. Donation requested. Cold Spring. (845) 265-3220; Presbychurchcoldspring.org.

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
