Gary Wittner Trio

Saturday - May, 26 @ 10:00pm

Guitarist Gary Wittner’s career has spanned 5 decades and 5 continents.  He has performed Jazz, Latin styles, Blues and Middle Eastern music throughout the USA and was chosen twice to represent our country as a Kennedy Center Jazz Ambassador.  Gary has released 7 CDs and one book (“Thelonious Monk For Guitar”).  Most recently, Gary is writing and performing original jazz composition with lyrics (why can’t there by a Jazz Singer/Songwriter category?).  Tonight’s performance will draw from this most recent repertoire, many of the songs coming from his newest CD, entitled “Too Modern For Me”.   Joining Gary will be bassist Tyler Heydolf and drummer Alex Ouillette.
