In an intimate listening room that combines the refinement of a concert hall with the comfort of a living room, Caffe Lena is devoting the 2nd Tuesday of each month to America's most original contribution to the musical palate, JAZZ. This continuing series is hosted by resident composer, pianist and jazz master, Chuck Lamb, with support from music producer Joel Moss. JAZZ at Caffe Lena features collaborations between Lamb and internationally touring jazz artists, as well as many of the Capital Region's best.
Chuck Lamb, who has been a member of the Brubeck Brothers Quartet since 2002, is not only an exciting and emotive pianist in his own right, but also a prolific composer of jazz, fusion, classical and world music. Most recently, Chuck and his band have released a CD of his original acoustic fusion music, titled North By Northeast. The CD has been receiving airplay on major jazz stations and garnering new fans and rave reviews worldwide.
Jazz clarinetist and tenor saxophone player, Ken Peplowski, has had a fruitful career both as a soloist and as a backup musician. He has recorded over 50 albums as a soloist and close to 400 as a backup musician, performing with artists such as Charlie Byrd, Mel Torme, Hank Jones, Peggy Lee, Bill Charlap, Woody Allen, and Benny Goodman. He is on tour roughly six months every year and has headlined the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, the Blue Note, and Dizzys Club amongst many other venues.
