Mike Sharfe

Local jazz bassist Mike Sharfe has assembled a new quartet called Retro Nouveau and they are releasing their first CD, Live at the Greenwich, on December 21. 

Holiday concerts are springing up around the city including a Nat King Cole Christmas at the Aronoff.  CCM will feature Gerald Arpino's Birthday Variations this week, and musician Will Downing will perform at the Freedom Center Friday night.

Lots of jazz shows around town, too, including Lynne Scott, the Brad Myers Trio, Mike Sharfe's Mambo Combo, & Mandy Gaines.
