Check out what's new and what's happening this month in jazz. ICON Magazines's Bruce Klauber has the scoop. QUEST FOR A FEST: Those who hope to lure a major, multi-day, corporately sponsored jazz festival back to Philadelphia may well look at The Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival in Sussex Country, Delaware, as a good model. This fest, soon to celebrate its 25th anniversary, runs from October 17 through October 20 with around 14 shows being presented on five area stages.
On Sunday June 2nd, WRTI, ICON magazine, Jacobs Music, The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, and Drum Workshop join forces to sponsor "An Afternoon of Jazz and Classical Music." WRTI's Bob Perkins will play host to jazz vocalist Paula Johns, The All-Star Jazz Quartet featuring Bruce Klauber, Andy Kahn, Bruce Kaminsky and Asher Stein, The Musicopia Student Drum Line, pianist Hanchien Lee from The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, and other guests.
