If you were not at our Foo Foo sponsored gumbo this past Monday, too bad.
Annie Sellick and Chris Walters Big Time Band … unbelievable
If you decided to watch Monday Night Football (no offense to Giant and 49er fans), too bad.
If you think you can find this kind of jazz anywhere in town, any given night, wrong … too bad. If you missed the eclipse last year, too bad. If you think you’ve heard Bob Maksympko, George Petropoulos and Jackson Willis sit in with national touring jazz artists in town, wrong … too bad. They played like they were touring with Annie and Chris!
If you missed it, you’ll never know. It was one of those … you had to be there!
Pensacola … wake up!!! Jazz is alive!
Come support it!!! If you felt like it wasn’t your kind of “jazz” … too bad … too bad.
Here’s the thing: Every time there is a world-class act, make time to support it. Moments like this do not happen every week, or month.
Jazz Pensacola will be bringing in more world-class jazz to the area. You will get another chance to hear and see some of the best in the world of jazz today! And that is not “too bad.”
Please enjoy this video with highlights from the July Jazz Gumbo, July 16 at Phineas Phogg’s, Seville Quarter.
The July Jazz Gumbo at Phineas Phogg’s at Seville Quarter featured a tribute to legendary vocalist Phoebe Snow, with vocals by Juliette Moore, Cynthia Domulot on keys, Jim Armstrong on guitar, Tom Latenser, bass, and Fred Domulot, drums. The evening was sponsored by Paul Herrick.
A packed crowd at Phineas Phogg’s in Seville Quarter enjoyed the swinging sounds of music legends Chuck Mangione and Herb Alpert at the Jan. 15 Jazz Gumbo. Leading the combo was Brian Taylor on trumpet and flugelhorn. Backing him up were Gino Rosaria on keyboards, Matt McCarty on woodwind, Tom Latenser on bass and Jazz Pensacola president Fred Domulot on drums.
The next Jazz Gumbo will be from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 19, at Phineas Phogg’s, Seville Quarter, 130 E. Government St. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Note, however, that the Feb. 19 event will be a Super Jazz Gumbo, a fundraiser for JazzFest.
This New Orleans music extravaganza, a fundraiser for JazzFest, will feature the sounds of The Village Brass Band and The Seville Saints, playing everything from Second-Line to Dixieland to Swing to Funk and what Jazz Pensacola president Fred Domulot tells us will be a lot of surprises! This is one you can’t miss.
