Sign in to view read count
Jazz Bridge presents bassist Ed Wise and his New Orleans Jazz Band at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts Ashbourne Road in Cheltenham— on Thursday, January 2. Showtime is 7:30 p.m., tickets are $10/$5 for students, and are only available at the door. For info: 215-517-8337 or visit Jazz Bridge.

As a bassist, bandleader and arranger, Wise has a wealth of experience in both mainstream and traditional jazz, having worked with artists ranging from Red Garland and Al Hirt to Herb Ellis and Mose Allison. Wise came to Philadelphia in the wake of hurricane Katrina, after spending a dozen years in New Orleans, and formed his New Orleans Jazz Band, which has become one of the most popular attractions on the East Coast traditional jazz circuit. And his Jazz Bridge appearances have often been near sell-outs. Members of the NOJB are trumpeter Stan Slotter, clarinetist Charley Salinger, trombonist Frederick E Scott, pianist Dave Postmontier and drummer Grant MacAvoy.

The Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concerts Series is partially funded by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Philadelphia Jazz Project, Philadelphia Fund for Jazz Legacy and Innovation of the Philadelphia Foundation, and Painted Bride Arts Center. Jazz Bridge, a 501C public charity that assists area jazz and blues musicians in crisis, is sponsoring this performance in Cheltenham, as well as 40 other events this season on five area stages in the Greater Delaware Valley.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
