The inaugural concert is Keely Smith; the Nov. 10 concert, titled “Back by Popular Request” features Freddy Cole, Ken Peplowski, Marty Grosz and Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks; the Dec. 1 concert is a “Salute to Kenny Davern” with the Statesmen of Jazz (Wycliffe Gordon, Houston Person, Harry Allen, Jon-Erik Kellso and Norman Simmons) and the Kenny Davern Quartet (James Chirillo, Greg Cohen and Tony DeNicola); and the final concert on Jan. 5 is “An Evening of Jazz Guitar” featuring Bucky Pizzarelli, Russell Malone, Howard Alden, Gene Bertoncini and Frank Vignola with special guests Jay Leonhart and Wycliffe Gordon. Additionally, there will be a surprise guest at each show.

Tickets run $30 and $27.50 for students, with a mail-order only subscription offer of all four concerts for $110.
