The First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown Jazz Vespers Series continues at 5:30 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 19, and at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, with Alexis Cole.
Cole is the vocalist for West Point’s Jazz Knights and is the recipient of a Swing Journal Gold Disk award and winner of both the New York Jazzmobile and Montreux Jazz Festival vocal competitions.
She will be joined by guest drummer Jeff Brillinger. Cole will also be backed up by Cameron Brown on bass, a regular at Jazz Vespers. Rob Scheps will be on sax and flutes. Scheps has been described by colleagues and critics as “the best Coltrane-style saxophonist living today.” Joining these luminaries will be Jazz Vespers’ arranger and band leader, Tom McCoy on piano and regular JV drummer Mike LaRocco.
Enjoy autumn and the spiritual sounds of jazz, a great way to experience a wonderful message and music. The Jazz Vespers service is free and open to all. Contact the First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown, 10 Academy St., Cold Spring, at 845-265-3220.
