But nothing beats being in the room

This week:  The 230 Jones Street, Local 6 Literary Jazz Band — also known as The Chuck Peterson Quintet.

Chuck Howie DeanSeries founder Chuck Peterson is out this week as he gets his chops back together after some minor dental work, but Frank Phipps will be ably subbing for him.  And singer Dorothy Lefkovits has got somewhere she needs to be, so she’ll be back next month.

But Glen Deardorff, the guitarist, has had a much more serious health crisis which we’ll know more about by Friday.  Our thoughts are with him.  Duncan James will sit in for him this session.

Count on Howard Dudune, Dean Reilly and Tony Johnson to swing hard and sweet while their dear colleague and our fond friend Glen is on the mend.

Take this opportunity to join us and your friends and neighbors in celebrating the music, the community and the common bond we share!  Our time together is more precious than we usually acknowledge.
