Tom Cleary and Jamie Masefield
A special evening with two longtime Burlington jazz musicians meeting on stage for their first collaboration since they met twenty five years ago. Pianist Tom Cleary teaches in the UVM and FlynnArts jazz programs and has accompanied artists including Clark Terry and Joe Lovano and has had long-term collaborations with Mike Gordon and James Harvey. Mandolinist, Jamie Masefield started his ground breaking group The Jazz Mandolin Project in 1993 and has performed with Bela Fleck, David Grisman, Marc Ribot and Bob Weir. It only became apparent a few months ago that they were part of a mutual admiration society and were eager to play together. The diverse set will certainly take piano and mandolin to places yet to be discovered. The evening will also include an appearance by singer/songwriter and UVM jazz vocal instructor Amber deLaurentis.
