Tickets are still available for the kick-off concert of this year’s Live at the Library series of music shows.
The Saturday, Sept. 20 event, which starts at 8 p.m., features jazz vocalist Jamie Davis. Davis, a native of Ohio, has a bass-baritone voice.
He’s sung with the Count Basie Orchestra, the BBC Orchestra and Big Band, and other groups; he’s performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival, Blue Note in New York, Milan and Tokyo, and Ronnie Scott’s in London.
“He has a gorgeous voice,” said co-organizer Eileen Savel, “and a long history of performing. Plus, his pianist is a real treat to hear.”
Appearing with Davis will be pianist Glen Pearson, drummer Leon Joyce, bassist John Shifflett and Roger Glenn on saxophone and vibraphone.
“All three of the Live at the Library shows should be very special,” co-organizer Ruth Belikove explained. “And they sell out quickly, so we ask community members to get their tickets soon at the Main Library or Books Inc.”
Tickets ($35) can also be bought online at Brown Paper Tickets or in person at the Main Library on the night of Saturday, Sept. 20.
Guests should enter through the back parking lot. The front doors will be locked.
