Friends of Linden Library will be hosting The MRB Jazz Project on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 7p.m., at Linden Public Library. The MRB Jazz Project is a trio comprised of Michael Pasqua on piano, Bruce Riccitelli on percussion and Gerry Babo on acoustic bass. They have performed at numerous private clubs, corporate events and fund-raising affairs, as well as libraries, colleges and universities since the group’s inception in 2005. Their repertoire encompasses music that virtually spans the past ninety years of American songwriting, including classic jazz compositions, along with their unique interpretations of the Great American Songbook, often popularized on stage and screen. From romantic ballads to up-tempo swing tunes, be-bop to jazz waltzes, MRB Jazz Project always weaves a diverse tapestry of music to appeal to a wide variety of musical tastes. And, for some added flavor, the trio often further seasons their engagements with some sultry Brazilian bossa novas or other Latin inflected tunes to round out their performance.
This performance is free and open to the general public. The library is located at 31 E. Henry Street.
