LACONIA — A line-up of tenor saxophone players will be featured in NH Jazz's next concert this Friday at Blackstones at the Margate Resort.
The Northeast Tenor Sax Summit will perform beginning at 8 p.m.
There is a charge for admission and the Margate will provide free appetizers.
The Northeast Tenor Sax Summit is comprised of several of New England's professional
tenor saxophonists backed up by a rhythm section. Their sound is reminiscent of the great jam
sessions of the swing era and especially Woody Herman's "Four Brothers." Though the make-up is ever evolving,
the group has recently included saxophonists Richard Gardzina, Matt Langley, Charlie Jennison, Fred
Haas and Jonathan Lorentz, with a rhythm section of bassist John Hunter and drummer Tim Gilmore.
The group hopes to "pick up a few more tenor players on the road" and invites professional tenor
saxophonists to sit-in.
The jazz series at Blackstones is coordinated by NH Jazz Presents, a company that produces a five
venue concert tour to Laconia, Concord, Nashua, Portsmouth, and Brandon, Vt. The tour is sponsored
by the Margate Resort, David Salzberg, the Saffron Bistro, Heat Pizza, Sanborn's Note-able Sound, the
Landmark Inn, Carrie's Eco Spa & Boutique, Brandon Music, Nashua Community Music School, the
Press Room, Seacoast Jazz Society, True Brew Barista, and the Brandon Inn.
