Pianist and band leader David Bugli said, “This free concert is open to all, with limited seating for an in-person audience. It will not be recorded, so watch it live from wherever you are. You’ll enjoy a mix of familiar and new tunes, including Charles Mingus’ “Haitian Fight song” featuring bassist Frank Iannetta and other band members, and trumpeter Bob Souter in “Evergreen.” Jakki Ford will sing “For Once in My Life,” “How High the Moon,” “Somebody Loves Me,” and more. The solo work of trumpeter Bill Melendres and tenor saxophonist Chris Guerra will be prominently featured.
