BRATTLEBORO- Howard Brofsky and his New York Quintet will perform on Saturday, May 18, at 8 pm, at the Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill.

There is little that jazz master Brofsky has not experienced in his varied and lengthy musical career.

Due to his many years of living in Brattleboro, Brofsky’s presence is familiar and welcome during his sojourns north.

But in New York, he is a venerated maestro with stellar connections. This year he has mined one of the finest quintets imaginable, lifting them directly from New York’s jazz scene to the Vermont Jazz Center on May 18th. The group will prominently feature a powerful bass and drum team: David Wong and Billy Drummond along with VJC summer workshop pianist Ray Gallon, and tenor sax titan Jed Levy.

Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for students with ID (contact VJC about educational discounts); available at In the Moment in Brattleboro or online at www.vtjazz.org.

Tickets can also be reserved by calling the Vermont Jazz Center ticket line, (802) 254-9088, ext. 1.
