DENNIS IRWIN TRIBUTE
On Monday, February 18, 2008 at the Village Vanguard, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra will honor its great bassist Dennis Irwin with a night of music featuring guest soloists Joe Lovano and John Scofield whose bands have also run on Irwin power for much of the last 15 years. The motivation for this night is to say thanks to a rare person, of great value to all of us, on and off the bandstand. The reason we're doing it now is because Dennis is undertaking a medical battle and we're in it with him.
Show times are 8:00, 10:00, and 12:00. Sets one and two will feature Joe and John with the band playing material from all periods of the band's great library. Set three will open it up for the band and many of Dennis' friends to come down and tear it up. The bar will be open as usual but admissions will be tax deductible and may be cash (receipts available) or check (made out to Sixteen as One Music Inc. memo Dennis Irwin) at the door. All admissions going to Dennis. Sets one and two - $75. each. Set three - $50. Those who wish to contribute but can't attend should send checks made out as above to:
Sixteen as One Music Inc. 888-C 8th Ave. #160 New York, NY 10019 Special thanks to Lorraine and Deborah Gordon and the staff at the Village Vanguard who instantly volunteered the use of the club for this event. This will be a special night. John Mosca
