JazzNOW: The Legacy of Tony Bennett

The next in our series of collaborations with GBH Music, “JazzNOW: The Legacy of Tony Bennett” will take place live on Friday 6/17 at 8pm from the acoustically acclaimed GBH Fraser Performance Studio in Brighton, with free live streaming access. The concert will feature members of Tony Bennett’s touring and recording quartet, including Tim Ray on piano, Gray Sargent on guitar, Marshall Wood on bass, and guest Donna Byrne on vocals. This exciting performance and the Q&A that will flow will highlight some of Tony Bennett’s enormous catalog of recordings.  Hosting will be Eric Jackson.  Streaming access is free, but you must register:

This program is supported in part by grants from the Boston Cultural Council/Reopen Creative Boston Fund, administered by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture, and by the Mass Cultural Council.

Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control, the in-person preview of this concert live at GBH Studio At the Boston Public Library on Wednesday 6/15/22 at noon has been canceled.

Boston Jazz History Blog:

Lennie Sogoloff: Jazz Along the Turnpike


Boston jazz historian Richard Vacca’s Boston Jazz Chronicles is an amazing and valuable resource.  We encourage jazz musicians and fans to check it out.

Vacca’s beautifully maintained and researched blog includes regular features about noted people & places that helped shape the Boston-area jazz scene.  The current entry is about club owner Lennie Sogoloff, who operated Lennie’s-on-the-Turmpike from 1962 to 1972.  Read about him here.
