Oct 05, 2013 08:00 AM
Veteran guitarist Gene Bertoncini has been a mainstay on the jazz scene since the 1960s, and a member of the WP jazz faculty for a decade. He was a member of the NBC Tonight Show band, was with Buddy Rich along with Mike Mainieri and Sam Most, and performed with Tony Bennett, Morgana King, Lena Horne, Lalo Schiffrin, Michel Legrand, Clark Terry, Paul Desmond, Paul Winter, and co-led a longtime duo with bassist Michael Moore. His latest collaborations have been with the young jazz violin star Sara Caswell, who joins him on this concert. Caswell has earned wide recognition for her work with Grammy-winning bassist Esperanza Spaulding in her Chamber Music Society, and has collaborated with John Clayton, Charlie Byrd and many others. This string quartet setting featuring Bertoncini and Caswell is sure to be a highlight of the Jazz Room season.
