If you do the math, you’ll realize that the 48th season actually opens with the 47th anniversary gala. Over the last five decades, producer Jack Kleinsinger’s venerable series has proliferated and prospered through at least half a dozen venues, starting with the old Theater de Lys and then New York University. (That’s where I first caught it - thank you Uncle Jack for giving me my only opportunity to see Woody Herman and Zoot Sims, along with dozens of other jazz legends and luminaries.) This particular gala promises a highly copasetic mix of “mainstream” and swing players (the brilliant violinist Aaron Weinstein), Afro Latin (percussionists Bobby Sanabria and Memo Acevedo), modernists (alto saxophonist Steve Wilson and pianist Tomoko Ohno) along with Mr. Kleinsingers - and everybody else’s - favorite bassist / vocalist / songwriter, Jay Leonhart. Expect that these extraordinarily players in all of these various styles of contemporary jazz will mix it up like crazy.
