2nd Line Jazz Quartet
February 13, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST$10
The 2nd Line Jazz Quartet puts a fresh, toe-tapping spin on the Great American Songbook.
Vocalist Sue Lopes was educated at the Hartford Conservatory. She has thrilled crowds from Hartford to New Orleans over the past 15 years with her distinctive, polished renditions of the jazz canon. Double bassist Jim Daggs has performed professionally since the age of sixteen, after learning the art of jazz bass from his luminary father, Richard Daggs. Jim has appeared on stages with Maynard Ferguson, Stefon Harris, and Tony Zano. Drummer Josh Briley brings the insights of Berklee greats Neil Smith and Kenwood Dennard, yet his musical and personal roots incorporate the energy of New Orleans. Pianist and composer Jerry Aiyathurai adds a formal touch, drawing on his eight years with the ABRSM program of the Royal College of Music (London) to provide musical direction to the ensemble.
