Tickets are $10 at the door or online: yocumartsevents.ticketleap.com/jazz-in-the-gallery—nathan-bellott-trio/. Here’s a chance to catch this talented group in our unique, intimate setting!
Berks County native Nathan Bellott brings a new project to town featuring an interesting and rarely used instrumentation: saxophone, trombone and bass. The ensemble will perform Bellott’s arrangements of songs from the Great American Songbook, as well as jazz standards (and perhaps a few original compositions). The subtraction of percussion allows the musicians to give you a fresh take on these timeless classics. Their influences include Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and many others of the 20th century.
The trio also cares deeply about jazz education. They are also the featured clinicians at the GetJazzED Instrumental Day, held the following day at Wyomissing Jr./Sr. High School. At the clinic, promising young jazz musicians from through Berks County and beyond will have the opportunity to get coaching from professional jazz musicians in several areas. As a product of these programs nearly a decade ago, Bellott is deeply committed to giving back to the students of Berks County.
