World-Class Jazz @ the KJ

With quite the array of entertainment from which to choose last night in Woodstock, I went with Grammy-winner Roswell Rudd and his quartet at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts. Mr. Rudd, trombonist extraordinaire, was in fine form, as were Ken Filiano on bass and Lafayette Harris on piano. Filling in for Sunny Kim, vocalist, was a very gifted Heather (couldn't quite catch her last name, but I'm sure we'll be hearing much more from her). My favorite tune of the evening was "Funky Little Sweet Thing," dedicated to Heather's son, August, who will celebrate his first birthday on 8/18.

If you missed the performance but would like to catch up with the artists, including producer Verna Gillis, check out the Roswell Rudd website.
