Peg Delaney Trio

Time: 6:30 -- 9:30

 

Peg Delaney plays sophisticated piano jazz, drawing from American, Latin and Brazilian idioms. The trio adds Bill Delaney on upright bass and features fine, poignant vocals by drummer Earl Davis. Peg also plays in solo and duo contexts, with larger combos, multiple singers, various horns and guitar. The fine arrangements by Peg create a rich piano and bass texture to cushion the vocals and delight listeners.
Peg has been a two-time recipient of the New York State Council for The Arts: Meet the Composer Grant and was semifinalist in the Musician Magazine Best Unsigned Band Competition.

Her transcription book of Nick Brignola Solos is sold internationally by Jamey Aebersold and has appeared in the Saxophone Journal. It is on the New York State Music Teachers Association adjudication list, and is recognized by the National Jazz Educators Association. Peg recently was awarded the Swingtime Lifetime Achievement Award as pianist and educator.

Annette Harris and Azzaam Hameed

Time: 6:30 ~ 9:30

Annette Harris

 Annette’s voice encapsulates the sultry sounds of soul, rhythm and blues. She

performs tunes from the standard jazz repertoire, Bossa Nova, Rhythm and

Blues and traditional vocal pop. Her effortless style embodies class, grace and

elegance in every performance.

 

Azzaam Hameed

'Azzaam's musical roots were derived from gospel, having grown up in a Pentecostal church environment. However, he did receive some formal training as a teenager, including classical music and theory when he enrolled as a student at Union College in Schenectady, NY. 'Azzaam pursued music on a full-time basis for several years, performing throughout the Northeast in several locally based top 40 groups. He ultimately decided to abandon the "road circuit" for a more predictable lifestyle and, in doing so, to develop a more versatile style as both a pianist and a vocalist
