To close out the 2010/2011 Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concerts Series in Collingswood, vibraphonist and composer Randy Sutin will be appearing at the Collingswood Community Center, 30 E. Collings Ave, in Collingswood, NJ, on May 5th with percussionist Gabriel Globus-Hoenich, guitarist Dan Hanrahan, and bassist Justin Sekelewski.

Vibes player Randy Sutin was born in Great Falls, Montana, but by age 13 he was playing drums professionally in a small border town on Lake Champlain. After graduating from the Crane School of Music, Sutin was the house musician at the Lake Placid Club Resort, then quickly relocated to Trenton NJ. Within a year, Sutin was playing in the house rhythm section at IshKabibble's night club in Long Branch, NJ, working with Cecil Payne, Big Nick Nicholas, Charles Davis, Benny Powell, Tom Harrell, Bill Hardman and Junior Cook. Later, after moving to Philadelphia, Randy Sutin joined the Bill Hollis's quartet and soon began working regularly and recording with the Barry Sames Jazz Ensemble. This led to recording work with the late pianist Freddie Green's group and Sutin was featured on Eddie's last CD, Shades of Green." Sutin's recent work has been with Max Roach bassist Tyrone Brown's String Ensemble.

Collaborating with Sutin will be Montreal native Gabriel Globus-Hoenich, one of Philadelphia's most promising young percussionists. He currently plays jazz/world/pop drums with notables such as John Swana, Joe Magnarelli, Orrin Evans, Tia Fuller, Larry McKenna, Tony Miceli, and Mike Boone, among others as well as in New York where he has played with Tim Berne, Ralph Alessi, Mark Helias, and Drew Gress. Gabriel is also an avid performer of contemporary classical music, and performs with the Philadelphia-based Chamber Music Now! Ensemble as well as the experimental group Ensemble No-Amnesia, with whom he premiered works by Theo Bleckmann. He has performed with members of the Grammy-winning ensemble eighth blackbird and has premiered works by rising star composers John Hollenbeck, Stratis Minakakis, Gene Coleman, Susie Ibarra and Sebastian Chang, among others.

One Show: 7:30-9 p.m. Admission: $10/$5 for students. No advance sales. Free Refreshments! For info: 856-858-8914

As is tradition, there will be a potluck buffet to celebrate another wonderful season of music and memories. Audience members are encouraged to bring a dish, but if you can't cook, just bring yourself!

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.
