Jack Jeffers and the New York Classics

Tonight we will go to Zinc Bar to hear the great Jack Jeffers and his 16 Piece Jazz Orchestra!

And as a special treat Monika Oliveira will be joining him with her wonderful voice!

Tuba player and bass-trombonist Jack Jeffers doesn’t call his 16-piece collective the New York Classics for nothing; you’ll have no trouble recognizing pieces such as Ellington’s “Mood Indigo,” Mingus’s “Goodbye, Pork Pie Hat” and Jobim’s “Corcovado.” He’s been in solidarity with avant-polymaths like drummer Warren Smith and Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s pianist Sonelius Smith for more than three decades, which explains why Jeffers’s soloists tend to come at both the familiar tunes and his originals from an inventively off-kilter base. -Time Out NY

    I especially loved all the trombones (my father was a trombone player), and Monica Oliveira's numbers. I liked the group, but it was overall a little too arranged and a little limited in variety. I would certainly hear them again, and I liked the leader's style.

    Dear Beth I haven't attended events in years nor have I paid dues. I am so sorry. Perhaps you should take me off the list for now because I do not see myself making events for a while. Thanks, Marie

    Is there a cover/minimum (aside from Meetup annual dues)?

    • Beth Z.

      The cover is $20 but we get a special $15 rate... One drink minimum... The dues are once a year and not related to a specific event

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
