You will never be an exceptional person if you fight only ordinary battles.
The Necessity of an Enemy, Ron Carpenter, Jr.
Here’s a short list of musicians we saw in the audience during a few of the performances at the January Jazz Fest: JT Hall, John Dancks, George Feltman, John Spillett, Kirsten Tegtmeyer, Jeff Stockham, John Michael Heagerty (aka Tots), TK Howard, Tom Witkowski, Phil Flanagan, Dave Solazzo, Joe Carello and many more. Great to see musicans support each other at the Mohegan Manor, which we didn’t know was designed by Ward Wellington Ward.
And we can’t forget to give a shout out to graceful CNY dancers such as Mike Colabufo and Margaret Luttinger, who were also in attendance.
Thanks for Larry Luttinger at CNY Jazz for the invite to the January Jazz Fest program at Mohegan Manor. Outside it was freezing, but inside the performers such as Kelly and Magnarelli kept it feeling hot, hot, hot by transforming the spacious Morris Ballroom (with its 22-foot ceilings) into a more intimate, cabaret-type atmosphere.
Iconic Hip Hop’s DJ Jam Master Jay was born Jan. 21, 1965.
The CNYJAF will produce their annual January JazzFest next week. One of the highlights of the all-day fundraiser will be a melodious collaboration between trumpeter Joe Magnarelli and the first lady of CNY Jazz, Nancy Kelly.
