CODY, Wyo. — Music fans will be able to sample fine dining and great jazz in the fourth concert of the wintertime live jazz series, Jazz Alive!, on Saturday, April 23.
The Yellowstone Jazz Festival continues presenting this series of monthly events as a service for jazz lovers in the Cody area. Guitarist Craig Hall is featured this month, and he will be joined by drummer Adam Greenberg and bassist Mike Carey at The Terrace.
Hall, a Livingston-born guitarist, performs regularly in clubs and small concert venues in the intermountain region and elsewhere in a variety of ensembles, most commonly with The Woods Project, Springhill, Jeni Fleming, Eden Atwood, and more recently in his own trio. He holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from Montana State University, where he studied with master classical guitarist Christopher Parkening and vibraphonist Fred Raulston. He has appeared on more than four dozen CD projects by regional artists.
As a drummer, Greenberg has become a top call in various styles since migrating to Montana from the Midwest. Versed in rock, funk and blues, he is most at home swinging in the styles of big band drummers and perhaps Art Blakey-influenced small ensembles.
Acoustic bassist Carey is a mainstay of the Montana music scene, commonly seen in any variety of musical settings, from folk and rock to jazz and blues.
This music series continues this month and concludes in May. There is no cover charge for the performance.
Dinner reservations at The Terrace can be made by calling (307) 587-5868.
