The Vogel at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank will launch a Jazz Brunch series, Oct. 15. Singer-trombonist Jeffery Miller will perform with guitarist Aaron Matson, pianist Miles Lennox, bassist Daniel Winshall and drummer Charles Goold, with a guest appearance by bassist Endea Owens.
A 26-year-old New Orleans native, Miller appeared on the HBO series “Treme” (as a student of trombonist Antoine Batiste, played by Wendell Pierce) and has worked with artists such as Trombone Shorty, Jon Batiste, Wynton Marsalis, John Legend and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
Miller has released two albums, 2018’s Lose Control and 2020’s Songs About Women (Live at Dizzy’s). You can listen to the Lose Control title track, below.
Owens is best known for playing in the house band of television’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
Brunch will start at 11 a.m., with the music at noon.
The Jazz Brunch series is sponsored by the New Jersey-based Gia Maione Prima Foundation, established in honor of singer Gia Maione Prima, who performed and recorded as a solo artist and as a duet partner of her husband, Louis Prima. Gia Maione Prima, who grew up in Toms River, died in 2013 at the age of 72.
The next Jazz Brunch, Nov. 19, will feature singer Aubrey Johnson and pianist Randy Ingram.
The Gia Maione Prima Foundation will also sponsor a Brunch at The Vogel with Tarriona “Tank” Ball of the band Tank & the Bangas, Nov. 13.
