Don’t miss the Ed Palermo Big Band tonight at Montclair Social Club for two sets; the event is one of many Montclair Jazz Festival special events leading up the grand finale at Nishuane Park.
A JAZZ HOUSE KiDS instructor, Palermo, who is the band’s director, arranger, and frequent composer, recently told “DownBeat” magazine for a review of their latest release “A Lousy Day in Harlem,” “My thinking is, I’m going to have as much fun as possible, and I’m going to ram that fun down the throat of anyone who comes to my show.”
Come hungry — Montclair Social Club offers terrific food and drinks.
BIG BAND NIGHT: The Ed Palermo Big Band
