1:00PM Cruzamente www.cruzamente.com Cape Verdean check 'em out! "They bring a rich and original approach to both the traditional and contemporary songs they perform. Cruzamente is pure entertainment and audiences cannot help but step to the dance floor to join them in celebration of their infectious music!"
2:00PM The Fred Woodard Trio www.fredwoodard.comGreat guitar trio... "Veteran Boston jazz guitarist Fred Woodard comes from the Wes Montgomery and Grant Green schools of elegant post-bop funk - thumb-picked, tensile lines spun from crafty tunes with a contemporary spin of hip-hop and avant-garde." ~ Jon Garelick, The Boston Phoenix
3:00PM The Rusty Scott Trio www.rustyjazz.com - The great Piano trio returns - Rusty Scott has been a staple on the Boston jazz scene since 1990 - "Is that Tommy Flanagan on piano? Wynton Kelly? Hank Jones? Red Garland? The answer: Rusty Scott" - Bob Young Boston Herald
4:00PM Persian Blue www.persianbluemusic.com - Persian Blue's music is primal, rhythmic, fusion jazz and rock with depth. Although a strong beat stays the course, you will also catch glimpses of subtle delights; the kind you wish you could recapture from dreams. The pro musicians bring international backgrounds to the richness and depth of their sound whether mellow vocals or improvisation. Persian Blue has played to sold-out performances at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston and is a recognized contributor to the vibrant music scene.
