However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Jazz Bridge Second Wednesdays Concert Series in Center City presents pianist Dave Postmontier at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion, 2110 Chestnut Street on Wednesday, October 8th. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. Show time is 7:30. Information: 215-517-8337 or visit Jazz Bridge.

It’s hard to remember a time when pianist / arranger / composer and educator Dave Posmontier wasn’t a vital part of the Philadelphia jazz landscape. He’s been at it for almost 40 years, first hitting the area scene in a big way via an organ trio with drummer Mickey Roker and saxophonist Bootsie Barnes. Still recalled fondly in these parts and beyond was the groundbreaking group he began co-leading with brother Rich in 1980. The Postmontier Brothers’ Quintet played concerts, clubs, and recorded an acclaimed album of original music. Postmontier has never ceased evolving or creating. He’s appeared in concerts and on recordings with John Swana, Grover Washington Jr.; James Moody, David "Fathead" Newman, toured internationally with his own Klingon Klezmer klezmer ensemble, and has, of late, become increasingly involved in music education.

Jazz Bridge is dedicated to assisting professional Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis by providing confidential and caring support in keeping with their personal dignity.
