The popular jazz concert event invites you celebrate life with a wonderful concert and dinner experience at the monthly Jazz It Up! @ Sorrento Restaurant, located at 631 Central Avenue in Westfield, NJ. Acclaimed jazz music artists bring to you a listening experience that promises to captivate the audience on the last Wednesday of each month at this intimate venue. The experience includes a choice of Music Menu entree, dessert and a beverage plus BYOB is welcome. This hot monthly jazz music event continues with the BeBop Jazz Sounds of the Bill Noren Group in concert.
This music quartet has been on the jazz scene in the New Jersey area for several years and individual members have been on the NJ music scene for much longer. The group specializes in straight-ahead and bebop jazz, having devised its own unique arrangements of standards while still allowing its members to improvise freely. Strong musical style influences from artists such as: John Coltrane, Count Basie, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ray Barretto, Herb Ellis, Tito Puente, Lester Young, Ron Carter and others have led the group down a path of creative musical discovery.
The group was founded and is led by drummer Bill Noren and includes Tom Rosenthal on saxophone, Bob Funesti on bass and Alex Bryant on guitar. They perform regularly at The Stonehouse in Warren, NJ, The Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ, The Old Riverhouse in Clinton, NJ, the Jazz in The Square series in Easton, PA and the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia, PA, among other venues. They have also been invited to perform for The Seton Hall Law School, The Chubb Corporation and The Hunterdon Medical Center. Their past performances have been noted by the Newark Star Ledger and NJ's premier jazz station WBGO, 88.3 FM. This is an encore appearance at an intimate Jazz It Up Music Concert Series event and they are looking forward to making it a regular stop.
The staff at Sorrento Restaurant, a long established Westfield eatery and home of the original tomato pie since 1870, welcomes you to this special popular monthly music concert event where you and your entire family can enjoy entrees from a pizza pie to a full course Italian meal while you enjoy the wonderful music performance.
