Re: “The 23rd Atlanta Jazz Party

In the swinging, Atlanta Jazz Party Hot jazz tradition, we’re excited to announce two magnificent musicians to this year’s all-star line-up — "Wall Street Journal reads...One of the major living jazz singers, Vocalist " Rebecca Kilgore will join us again ; Crooner Freddy Cole will be there for what is sure to be a memorable Pizzarelli-Cole reunion performance; Returning this year one of our favorite bassist, Richard Simon . The artists he's performed with at festivals, concerts, nightclubs, and recording sessions is a veritable Who's Who of the mainstream and traditional jazz worlds.; John Allred and Russ Phillips on trombone; And the swing of vibraphone and drummer Chuck Redd who recently released his new CD “When Redd is Blue” featuring Harry Allen who is also in this years lineup.
Joining the lineup are long-time AJP favorites Ed Polcer, Bob Schulz, Jon-Erik Kellso and Duke Heitger on cornet; Allan Vaché, and Harry Allen on reeds; Of course the lineup would not be complete without John Cocuzzi on vibes, vocals and piano along with Mark Shane and Rosanno Sportiello; On guitar none other than Matt Munisteri and Bucky Pizzarelli are featured;
Ed Metz Jr. on drums rounds out this years ALL Star Lineup! Music is in the tradition of Hot! Chicago/New York, BG Quartet, West Coast, New Orleans jazz bands and Swing combos.
