Young lions invade Jazz Central for virtual concert

Syracuse NY – CNY Jazz continues to supply music hungry Central New Yorkers with cutting edge jazz in their next Jazz Central Production of the season. Emerging national trumpet talent Tom Iandolo will bring his sextet into Jazz Central to record a concert for streaming on multiple nights in February spanning the Valentine’s Day weekend. Showtimes are scheduled for Friday February 12th at 7 p.m., Saturday February 13th at 7 p.m., and Sunday February 14th at 4 p.m. Tickets are available now at TIX.COM for $10.00. Links will be sent one hour before showtimes.

A native Syracusan, Iandolo is a graduate of Jamesville-Dewitt High School and Ithaca College. A protegee of jazz greats Scott Wendholt and Marvin Stamm, he had become active in the New York City club scene when the pandemic shut down music venues everywhere. For his upcoming show, he has assembled a top-flight sextet of young lions from across New York State including Dunham Hall on tenor sax, Oliver Scott on piano, Joey Arcuri on bass, Drew Serafini on guitar, and Ian Cummings on drums. Viewers can expect swinging renditions of Great American Songbook repertoire, jazz standards, and music for lovers as well, in keeping with the Valentine’s Day tradition.

“These young players will be the ones keeping the flame of America’s music alive for the future,” commented Larry Luttinger, CNY Jazz Executive Director. “It’s great to see them go from dropping in our jams and workshops to emerging as adult professionals. Your tickets to this show will amount to more than admissions. They are investments in the future of the art form, plain and simple.”
