A Tribute to Chet Baker with our own Chris Brown!

Chris Brown is a fine trumpeter, bassist, recording/producing musician in our meetup. His quintet (including vocalist Kim Oler) is performing a tribute to cool jazz trumpet and vocal legend, Chet Baker. They are playing at the Unitarian Church / Voices Cafe in Westport CT on May 11.

Tickets should be $20 paid online, or $25 at the door.

Seating is open so we don't have to buy a block of tickets together, just get your own. David Vita, a member of our group and host for the event, has kindly arranged for 1-2 tables for our meetup and another. When you get there, just ask for the "meetup table" and/or David or myself.

Bring your own snacks/appetizers is encouraged. That means less than a full dinner, but bringing grapes, chips, cheese, cookies, etc would be great.  I'll bring a thing or two and ask that other members of the group also consider bring a small snack that can be shared.

    Chris and band put together a great selection of Chet Baker (and Chet-inspired) songs. The singing was so smooth and the band swung nicely.

    This was an excellent concert, with fine musicians performing music that they loved, making it much more enjoyable for the audience.

    I am going to be able to attend after all. I have invited a friend to join, so it will be two of us.

    Look for the "Reserved for Meetup" tables. Bring wine/beverage/appetizers for yourself and to share. Please secure your ticket in advance. Almost all of our shows have sold out!

    See many of you Saturday at the Chet Baker (Chris Brown and band) event. The performance is at 8pm and I'll be there at 7:30. Ask for the "meetup table." "Bring-your-own-snacks" is encouraged - chips, cookies, grapes, cheese, etc. Please consider bringing a nosh for the group to share, and I'll do the same. See you soon, Scott

    If you’re looking for a loud, brash jazz sound then don’t come to Voices café Saturday night. If, however, you’re in search of jazz that’s melodic and subtle, smooth, warm, airy, and mellow. Then A Tribute to Chet Baker will be perfect.

    Check out the concert preview in today’s -http://tinyurl.com/c7zqd4f -Norwalk Hour. Wonderful insights by Chris Brown and Kim Oler on Chet Baker - his life and music.

    This is a friendly reminder to buy your ticket online to the Chet Baker Tribute, Saturday night 5/11 in Westport. If features our own Chris Brown on trumpet and the band sounds hot.

    $20 online at http://voicescafe.org/buy-tickets/
    We have a table reserved and 11 attending right now from our group. Also, do signup to see the Blue Note tribute at the Bassline in Mt Vernon on May 19th, and see the upcoming summer events. Take care, Scott

    Hey Jazz, Chet and music lovers. If you haven't purchased your Tribute to Chet Baker tickets yet, please do so. Purchase online at: http://voicescafe.org/buy-tickets/. We have a table reserved so let's make sure that we fill it! Bring wine and appetizers to share.

    Voices Cafe is set up with round tables. Folks bring wine and appetizers--it's like a picnic! I can reserve a table for the meet up group. Just let me know ([masked]) who wants to sit together.

      Thanks so much for offering to arrange seating together for the Chet Baker event, David. Right now we have 7 attendees (excluding Chris in the performance). The final # likely will be 7 to 10. Could you arrange for 1 large or 2 medium tables?

    A truly magical show. Have seen Chris and crew doing Chet Baker in the past. It will be an evening well spent
