Jazz trumpeter and vocalist Bob Merrill and pianist and composer Joe Bushkin

Hello folks, I’m excited to tell you about our upcoming CD release show for Tell Me Your Troubles: Songs by Joe Bushkin, Vol. 1. The show will be the concluding performance of the 45th season of Jack Kleinsinger’s Highlights in Jazz, New York’s longest running jazz concert series, and will double as the Joe Bushkin Centennial Concert.

Joining me will be guest stars Wycliffe Gordon on trombone and vocals, Nicki Parrott on bass and vocals, Jay Leonhart on bass, Harry Allen on saxophone, Eric Comstock, Ted Rosenthal, John Colianni, and Spike Wilner on pianos, and Steve Johns on drums.

The show will be held at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center at 199 Chambers Street in New York. (Tickets are available here.) Please come out and help us celebrate the enduring legacy of the great Joe Bushkin!
