Join YPLC for its last "101" of the season: Jazz 101 featuring the Sammy Miller Jazz Quintet. A brilliant young jazz musician, Sammy will present "An Evening of Joyful Jazz". From Duke Ellington to Art Blakey, Louis Armstrong to Sonny Rollins, these jazz masters used their music to brighten up the day of others. With Sammy on drums, his fellow musicians Alphonso Horne (trumpet), Ben Flocks (tenor saxophone), Chris Pattishall (piano) and Josh Crumbly (bass) will explore the music of these jazz greats. Co-hosted by Carbon Club NYC, this event is sure to be a glamorous and entertaining affair.
