Melissa Gardiner: bandleader

Second Line Syracuse’s appearance at the Community Folk Art Center last night was like a hearty bowl of well-seasoned gumbo to warm the autumn chill. The song list for the evening included a dash of Mongo Santamaria, a sprinkle of Ellington, a side of Fela Kuti and Vulfpeck, and even a pinch of Trombone Shorty.

Trumpeter Dan Fields and Melissa Gardiner played leading roles, and even marched through the crowd during one number. Their rendition of “Night Time Is the Right Time” also featured some robust vocal sparring. ┬áThe quintet was rounded out by Byron Cage (drums), Deyquan Bowens (keys) and Matt Rossi (sousaphone).

The show was held at the Community Folk Art Center.

Selina Albright and Jackiem Joyner

One of our correspondents, LEM J, captured this photo during Saturday’s Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival (Delaware). The festival also included some of the artists who made sweet music in Syracuse this summer, such as Nick Colionne and Gerald Veasley.

We look forward to experiencing the musical synergy of Joyner and Albright at the CNY Jazz Black History Month Cabaret.

Special thanks to Denny Santangini.
