Berks Jazz Fest 2017: Berks Bop Night

Wednesday night, the traditional Berks Bop Night took place at Building 24, led by guitarist Chuck Loeb, it featured saxophonists Gerald Albright, Everette Harp and Eric Marienthal, keyboardist Jeff Lorber, trumpet player Rick Braun, acoustic bassist Brian Bromberg and drummer Marcus Finnie. This show gave our favourite smooth jazz players the opportunity to show off their straight ahead chops and improvisational skills, and delve into some be bop classics like "Night In Tunisia", "Ornithology", "Giant Steps", "Donna Lee" and others, especially notable was their rendition of "Body & Soul" which was nicely sung by Rick Braun. The show was well received and provided a lot of fun by all involved.
