The Jam Session Will Present Afro Latin Jazz At Bay Burger On January 11

Jan 9, 2018 11:24 AM

The Jam Session Inc., a nonprofit that presents live music at South Fork venues, will host Afro Latin Jazz Night in Sag Harbor on Thursday, January 11, and admission is free.

From 7 to 9 p.m. at Bay Burger on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, a four-piece band will perform, including emcee and Jam Session founder Claes Brondal.

Mr. Brondal will play drums, accompanied by Oscar Feldman on saxophone, Helio Alves on piano and Michael O’Brien on upright bass.

Mr. Feldman, from Córdoba, Argentina, is skilled with the alto, tenor and soprano saxes and has a wide range of Panamerican influences, such as tango, candombe, samba and mambo. He’s a Berklee College of Music graduate and a sought-after studio musician who had been recorded on more than 40 albums. He is currently on the faculty at the New York Jazz Academy.

Mr. Alves, from São Paulo, Brazil, moved to Boston at age 18 and received his bachelor’s in professional music in 1990. He relocated to New York City in 1993 at the urging of acclaimed Brazilian, jazz trumpeter Claudio Roditi. Since then he has been a sideman, touring artist and recording artist, featured on Grammy-winning albums.

Mr. O’Brien—a graduate of the University of Minnesota where he majored in the Spanish language—studied bass under Anthony Cox, and West African and Haitian percussion under Marc Anderson. He has been performing and composing internationally for more than a decade, and has taught clinics and master classes through the United States and Europe.
