Join a sextet of some of Boston’s finest jazz musicians for Winchester Unitarian Society’s celebrated “Jazz in the Sanctuary” concert, 8 p.m., Friday, January 25th, 478 Main St., Winchester. This year, the theme is fairy tales, and the program features original jazz pieces such as Wayne Shorter’s “Beauty and the Beast” and “Fee Fi Fo Fum,” Horace Silver’s “Enchantment,” and John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps,” as well as popular classics including “That Old Black Magic,” “Someday My Prince Will Come,” “Alice in Wonderland,” and “When You Wish Upon a Star” — a tune ranked among the top 10 greatest songs in film history by the American Film Institute.
Performers include Greg Hopkins on trumpet, Dino Govoni on saxophone, Clayton DeWalt on trombone, John Kramer on piano, Mark Pucci on bass, and Yoron Israel on drums. These musicians have performed internationally and throughout the U.S. and have worked and recorded with numerous artists, including Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Rich, Art Blakey, Bill Evens, Joe Lovano, Clark Terry, Horace Silver, Arturo Sandoval, Bill Stewart, the Gene Krupa Orchestra, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and the Boston Pops.
