Held at Richard's Clothier on Greenwich Avenue, this charity event was one of a kind. The first and second floor displays were cleared away, and an enraptured audience sat up and down the grand staircase.
Tasty hors d'oeuvres were offered before the delightful performance that highlighted guest soloists from Russian National Orchestra , along with the versatile talents of the Brubeck Brothers Quartet. Among the songs were excerpts from the Claude Bolling suite, originals by Chris Brubeck, ChuckLamb and most importantly tunes by father Dave Brubeck, who was being honored in absentia with the illustrious Silver Baton Award from the Russian National Orchestra. Proceeds from the evening will help fund the many programs of the Russian National Orchestra located in Moscow, and relief efforts sponsored by Jazz'd 4 Life around the world.
