With Eli Yamin, piano; Evan Christopher, clarinet; Nicki Parrot, bass; LaFrae Sci, drums; and Catherine Russell, guest vocalist
Long Island native and jazz pianist, composer, singer, producer, and educator Eli Yamin returns to the stage at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Inspired at a young age by the musical stylings of Sinatra, B.B. King, and Jimi Hendrix, Yamin infuses his classically trained sound with influences ranging from blues to chamber music. A veteran of Jazz at Lincoln Center, Eli Yamin is the head instructor of our Middle School Jazz Academy and the artistic director of the Jazz Drama Program. The trio will be performing holiday classics, as well as tunes from artists including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Sidney Bechet, and Mary Lou Williams. Come share some holiday spirit with Yamin, clarinetist Evan Christopher, and vocal all-star Catherine Russell.
