Jack Jeffers and the New York Classics

16 Piece Jazz Orchestra
Friday, December 22
10PM & Midnight Shows

Tuba player and bass-trombonist Jack Jeffers doesn’t call his 16-piece collective the New York Classics for nothing; you’ll have no trouble recognizing pieces such as Ellington’s “Mood Indigo,” Mingus’s “Goodbye, Pork Pie Hat” and Jobim’s “Corcovado.” He’s been in solidarity with avant-polymaths like drummer Warren Smith and Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s pianist Sonelius Smith for more than three decades, which explains why Jeffers’s soloists tend to come at both the familiar tunes and his originals from an inventively off-kilter base. -Time Out NY
