Our next session will be from 6 until 8 PM on Sunday, October 20 with Fred Vigorito, Russ Whitman, Noel Kaletsky, Art Hovey, Joel Schiavone, Tom Artin on trombone, Charlie Freeman on piano, and vocalist Cynthia Fabian. In November we'll be there on the 17th.

Seating is somewhat limited; please call 203-230-4640 to reserve a table or a seat at the bar. There is no cover charge, and no minimum. Click HERE for Jean Hadley's review of a recent session.
