Free jazz concerts will heat up the headquarters location of the Monmouth County Library in November when the library presents Jazz Month 2008. The month-long event features four jazz concerts on Sundays, November 9 through November 30 at 2 pm.

This year's concert series will begin with The Inventions Trio on November 9. The trio features pianist Bill Mays, trumpeter/flugelhornist Marvin Stamm, and cellist Alisa Horn. These classically trained jazz masters will perform fresh interpretations of wellknown classical themes, jazz classics and original works.

The Mark Sherman Quintet will perform on November 16. Sherman, a vibraphonist and composer, as well as a Yamaha performing artist, has 30 years of recording, composing and performing experience with orchestras, jazz artists and vocal artists. Sherman brings his quintet featuring Joe Magnarelli on trumpet, Allen Farnham on piano, Dean Johnson on bass, and Tim Horner on drums to the library.

Giacomo Gates and Trio will perform on November 23 featuring Gates, Tony Lombardozzi, Rufus Reid and Steve Johns.

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!
