About this event

MetroWest’s Newest Jazz Venue
Christ Episcopal Church Needham, MA
Opposite the Public Library

Portrait In Jazz is a dynamic, original jazz band featuring leader Brad Ellenberg: guitar, Gary Bohan:trumpet/flugelhorn, Chris Hildebrand: saxophone, Bob Abruzese: bass, Grant Smith: drums, and vocalist: Deirdre Pedersen .

It’s wonderful to see musicians committed to creating fresh, meaningful jazz music from the rich tapestry of the American Songbook. With over fifty original compositions and a vast selection of jazz standards, they’re undoubtedly dedicated to both preserving the tradition of jazz while also innovating with their own unique creations.
