Join us for a modern look at some of the most classic music from the past 80 years. Known for his probing interpretations of the jazz cannon, saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk and his band of like-minded players from across the Mid-Atlantic will leave you searching for more of their work. Armed with a program that ranges from Duke Ellington and Cannonball Adderley favorites to cutting-edge originals, Antoniuk and the band are poised for a memorable night in a rare Rock Hall appearance.
Among the evening’s highlights will be “Prelude To A Kiss, showcasing the special interaction between Antoniuk and his bassist, Tom Baldwin. This arrangement, which appears on Antoniuk’s highly acclaimed second album, Brotherhood, was praised recently by Ron Netsky of the Rochester City Paper.
