Corty & Friends
*featuring a diverse group of guest soloists
“Picture yourself in 1959… you’re sitting in a dimly lit New York City lounge, nestled in the Village… or, maybe 52nd Street… the vibe is chill, the air is smokey, cocktail glasses all around are clanking, the cash register’s tone is chiming… but, your focused on three guys wearing suits… each humbly intent on their instruments… piano, bass, drums… they are so close to your table, you can hear their whispers; as they devote their body & soul to the deepest root of American music – Jazz. The dust of everyday life that had filled your mind prior to taking your seat and sipping your drink, has instantly been washed away by ballads, blues, and bop. Throughout the evening, the trio welcomed a beautifully sweet singer, a smooth guitarist, and a sultry sax…. By the time you’ve stumbled back uptown to your apartment, the melodies are circling your thoughts…. and you can’t seem to stop smiling – or crying. That’s the power of Jazz music. That’s what we hope to facilitate within the storytelling walls of Tellus360… every fourth Tuesday in 2020. Lancaster City’s got the blues, baby…. if you wanna swing, or just catch the groove while we cook – it’s the hippest joint to bounce to. Ya Dig?”
