Monday Night Jazz
Come down and picnic with us. I will not be able to get there until 6:30ish, look for our balloons around that time.
BOB PASKOWITZ AND LATIN QUARTER
Bob Paskowitz leads the Latin Quarter, playing woodwinds and percussion. Bob brings a variety of playing experience to the group, having worked with Hartford area bands over the years such as the Hornets and Sweet Butter ‘n’ Jam. The former student of sax icon Jackie McLean has appeared at the Litchfield Jazz Festival and has recorded with the internationally-renowned Anthony Braxton.
ED FAST AND CONGA BOP
As the percussion playing leader of Conga-Bop, the hard-swinging Latin jazz ensemble, Ed Fast has become a celebrated figure in town through his band's many well-received appearances in Hartford, including its soulful, sizzling sessions at The Firebox Restaurant.
As a versatile, Hartt School-trained percussionist, Fast is also right at home sitting-in on occasion with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, touring with premier Broadway road shows throughout Russia, China, Japan and South Korea, or gigging in backup bands at Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun accompanying big-name, casino favorites like Aretha Franklin and Paul Anka.
