Drummer Winard Harper’s Jeli Posse Band was joined by the great Frank Wess at The Jazz Standard on November 14. On the bandstand: Frank Bruce Harris on trumpet, Jonathan Beshay, JoVan Alexander on tenors, and vocalist Jazz Horn.
Thanks WBGO, this was a great night!
We had a lot of fun playing at The Standard for so many of our friends and other wonderful musicians. It was truly an honor to play with the Legendary Frank Wess, a moment I will continue to treasure and never forget. Special thanks to Miss Fran Kaufman for her beautiful photography! I was fortunate to meet her in Hartford, CT during the summer of 2012! Winard and Jelli Posse played for the Monday Night Jazz presented by The Hartford Jazz Society at Bushnell Park and she was shooting. Although our first time getting acquainted was during The Standard hit, she was very friendly and passionate about her work and was kind enough to share her gift with me.
Thanks for spreading the word and helping us keep this music alive! God Bless you!
Peace and Love
