Benefit for Claude Black

Along with being a jazz legend, singer in his own right and educator, Claude is loved by singers for his wonderfully cool temperament and ability to accompany the newbies and the vets.  He has worked with Aretha Franklin and Dakota Staton, among others.  All the cats know with him at the piano on a gig, all is well.  We want to give him a break Sunday 6-24-12 and show him he is loved by all of us, musicians singers alike.  If he feels like playing, that would be a special treat, but the day belongs to him.  The core group that will start things off is Sean Dobbins (d), Josh Silver (p) and Joel Hazard (b).  Please join us from 3 - 7 p.m. at 151 On The River, formerly Murphy's Place Jazz Club.  Special thanks to 151 owner Mike Scott for opening on a Sunday afternoon for this event.  Anyone interested in performing should email me @ or send text to 419 297-9856.
