Jazz and Mexican food converge for one evening

The Musicians of Wall Street Jazz Ensemble will present their annual Jazz in January cabaret-style evening with two shows on Friday, Jan. 25, at 7 and 9 p.m. As the audience savors food courtesy of Hermanos Cocina Mexicana, they will hear a wide range of Latin, be-bop, gospel-tinged blues tunes as well as a few originals by the band. A highlight will be the percussion extravaganza that promises not one, but two, drummers.

Named for its downtown Concord location, the Musicians of Wall Street Jazz Ensemble is made up of the Concord Community Music School’s jazz faculty: David Tonkin, guitar; Richard Gardzina and Matt Langley, saxophones; Tom Robinson, keyboards; Don Williams, bass; and John Faggiano and Tim Gilmore, drums. All have performed, individually and together, throughout New England, in New York City and at jazz festivals around the nation.

Tickets may be bought in advance for $15 for adults, $12 for students and seniors. The shows take place at the Concord Community Music School’s Community Room, with entrances on Fayette and Wall streets. For more information, call 228-1196 or visit ccmusicschool.org.
