Master jazz bassist Dylan Taylor’s CD release party at the Painted Bride Arts Center, 230 Vine Street, on Friday December 13th, will celebrate the release of Sweeter for the Struggle, which features guitarist Larry Coryell, a special guest at this event. Jazz Bridge, the region’s non-profit devoted to assisting area jazz and blues musicians in need, will receive 15% of every ticket sold. Tickets are $30, doors open at 7:30 and the show begins at 8 p.m. For advance tickets, visit the Painted Bride. Info: 215-517-8337.

Taylor has assembled an all-star band for this event, including Tom Lawton on piano, drummer Craig McIver, saxophonist Bobby Zankel, trumpeter Bob Meashey and trombonist Steve Tirpak, as well as the legendary Coryell.

A part of the evening’s festivities will be Jazz Bridge’s annual Making a Difference Award ceremony, presented this year to Lovett Hines from the Philadelphia Clef Club of the Performing Arts. Hines will receive the award, which comes with a $250 prize, in recognition of his exemplary devotion to teaching generations of jazz players who are now—or will shortly become—stars of the jazz world.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
