Rich Harney Jazz Festival Day 1 w/ Beth Ullman Quartet, Suzzan Craig, Elias Haslanger Quintet

Pianist/composer Rich Harney left a significant void in the local jazz circle when he unexpectedly passed in 2020. His old friend and partner Alex Coke fills it with an inaugural festival at First Presbyterian, at which Harney was a fixture every Sunday morning. Friday night includes frequent Harney co-conspirator Beth Ullman and her Quintet, NYC pianist Suzzan Craig, and Harney mentee Elias Haslanger’s Quintet. Saturday brings pianist Andy Weyl and his trio, an encore performance from Craig, and organizer Coke’s 5tet. Harney’s books and records will also be for sale. – Michael Toland
