Harry Allen’s All Star New York Saxophone Band to perform in Cooperstown on August 1

Written By Editor on 7/24/23 | 7/24/23


 

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (JULY 24, 2023) – The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival kicks-off its month-long run, on Tuesday, August 1, with an evening of jazz brilliance from Harry Allen’s All-Star New York Saxophone Band at the Otesaga Resort Hotel. This highly anticipated performance promises to deliver an unapparelled performance, marking the beginning of festival’s 25th anniversary. 

 

Renowned jazz luminary Harry Allen, a fixture at festivals and clubs both in the United States and abroad, will be joined by fellow tenor saxophonists Ken Peplowski and Grant Stewart, along with Gary Smulyan on baritone saxophone. Accompanying them as usual will be James Chirillo on guitar, Mike Karn on bass and Aaron Kimmel on drums, promising an evening of small group jazz with a big band feel.

 

Known for their ingenuity, sense of swing, and their lush four-saxophone sound, Allen and his ‘All Stars’ are modern custodians of the ‘Four Brothers’ sound, popularized by Woody Herman and the Second Herd in the 1940s. Their appearance at CSMF will include new interpretations of timeless jazz classics, blending seamlessly the traditions of jazz’s past with the sounds of its present.

 

“We are thrilled to have Harry Allen and his top-notch band at CSMF this year, continuing our tradition of hosting the world’s finest jazz ensembles at the festival,” says Linda Chesis, Festival founder and Artistic Director. “We’re excited to offer the Cooperstown community the chance to hear the jazz songbook in the hands of true masters.”
