732-431-7220 
Celebrate four decades of free jazz at the Library!
Giacomo Gates is an extraordinary vocal stylist. He's often credited as a contemporary Eddie Jefferson, but with his full-bodied baritone and blazing inventiveness he sounds like a cross between Billy Eckstine and Kurt Elling.

Counterclockwise Ensemble Concert
2 p.m. Saturday, January 25
Wall Township Library, 2700 Allaire Road, Wall 07719
732-449-8877

The Counterclockwise Ensemble is a guitar, strings and percussion quintet that plays contemporary American chamber music. Equally at home in a variety of genres, the group, who calls themselves "classical crossovers," primarily plays the compositions of guitarist Rich Stein, sprinkling in pieces by Gustav Holst and Aaron Copland as well as traditional American and Irish folk tunes into their sets.

The current ensemble includes founding members Rich Stein (guitar), Andrew and Rebecca Perea (orchestral strings) plus newcomers Glen Saunders (double bass) and Jim Mansfield (percussion).
