Former New York City trumpeter Jim Rotondi, who recently moved to Graz, Austria, is passing through town on Wednesday, February 2, to perform at Tula's before heading up to The Cellar in Vancouver.

The band features Mark Taylor (saxophone), John Hansen (piano), Phil Sparks (bass) and Matt Jorgensen (drums). Reservations are suggested (206-443-4221).

Jim's extensive recording experience most recently includes the release of his second date as a leader for the Posi-Tone label, titled “Blues For Brother Ray," a tribute to his former boss Ray Charles, following a host of successful releases on various labels. Having appeared on some 70 CD's as a sideman, he can also be heard on several of Charles Earland's Highnote Records releases, alongside saxophonist Eric Alexander, with whom Jim made his recording debut on Eric's Delmark release “Straight Up." Other recordings include saxophonist George Coleman's Octet, featuring Harold Mabern, as well as drummer Ray Appleton's Sextet, which features Slide Hampton, Charles McPherson, and John Hicks. The above mentioned One For All, whose Sharp Nine Records releases “Too Soon To Tell" and “Optimism" received critical acclaim from Cadence and The Detroit Free Press, also has 12 CD's to their credit.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
