    The Seacoast Jazz Appreciation Project - Sunday - April 17th - 4:30-5:45 PM - The Press Room
    April 15th, 2011

    From: Terry MacDonald -  Host: Jazz Straightahead  (Wednesday 6-9 AM - WSCA-LP) 

    The Seacoast Jazz Appreciation Project
    Sunday, April 17th, 4:30-5:45 pm
    The Press Room, 77 Daniel Street, Portsmouth, NH

    Charlie Jennison Quartet

    Note: This is a free event! However, if you wish to stay for the evening performance from 6 to 9 pm, the normal Press Room cover charge of $10 ($5 for students) applies.

    The Performers/Presenters: 

    Charlie Jennison: Charlie began his jazz career in 1961 playing at rotary clubs and at other local functions while still in junior high school. Moving to New Hampshire from Florida, he formed a jazz combo at the University of New Hampshire from which he graduated in 1969 with a degree in Music Education. Jennison has studied with such major jazz figures as Jerry Bergonzi and Charlie Mariano. The defining moment in Jennison’s career came early in his career when he met pianist Tom Gallant, a teacher at the Berklee School of Music at that time, an alumnus of Woody Herman’s band, and, as we knew him in Portsmouth, as the leader of the host group of Sunday Night Jazz at The Press Room. Jennison played with Gallant for more than 30 years.

    Mark Shilansky: One of the most in-demand pianists on the Seacoast and in the Boston area, Mark is an Assistant Professor at Berklee College of Music. He’s a graduate of both University of New Hampshire and the New Conservatory of Music, a composer, producer and vocalist as well as a pianist. He has performed and recorded with musicians and singers that include Jerry Bergonzi, Jamie Baum, Rebecca, New York Voices, Luciana Souza, George Garzone and Kenny Wheeler, to name just a few.

     Nate Therrien and Ken Clark: Bassist and drummer, respectively, both Nate and Ken are Seacoast-area jazz musicians with impressive credentials, frequent sidemen in the groups of the best jazz musicians on the scene.
