We hope you are all gearing up for the holidays and easing into the festive spirit. And what better way to celebrate Christmas than with some tickets for your loved ones to one of the many great Jazz concerts coming up next year at BuckingJam Palace? (it sure beats a lump of coal…)
There is lots of great music coming up and here’s a preview of the two outstanding shows coming up in January to start off the year ahead.
Canadian pianist Adrean Farrugia partners with one of New York City’s finest, tenor saxophonist Joel Frahm, for an intimate evening of duets. Juno award winner Adrean Farrugia has played on over forty albums, including four as a leader. He first met New York saxophonist Joel Frahm in 1990 and a creative musical connection was formed that led to the release of their 2018 duo album, Blued Dharma. Joel Frahm is recognized as one of the finest saxophone players on the New York scene today.
