The Nancy & Joe Show

Nancy Kelly & Joe Magnarelli played the third floor ballroom at Mohegan Manor for January Jazz Fest Sunday afternoon.

Nancy Kelly & Joe Magnarelli played Mohegan Manor Sunday afternoon.



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.

Tear the Roof off tha Sucker

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Sax man Marion Meadows said he’s wanted to perform in Syracuse for a long time, sick especially since his sister lives here.  He finally got his chance last night during a sizzling performance for the Northeast Jazz and Wine Festival (formerly Jazz in the Square).  During the set Meadows did a roll call of musicans that have influenced his band, people such as Grover, Ella, Miles, Coltrane, James Brown and some others. Then before bringing the house down, he asked a simple question: “What happens when some Funk falls into your cereal?” 

The crowd in Clinton Square for the festival concert got the answer, but Meadows added a cresendo later when his band brought their steady rhythms to Jazz Central for an intimate late night jam session (which typically follow the festival performances). 

In addition to his quartet, Meadows vibed with musicians such as Eudy Ferdandez and The Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet, featuring Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, Noah Kellman, Nick Frenay, Zach Brown, and Corey Fonville. 

Joe Magnarelli also joined the session, which funked up the house til well past midnight.
