While most of the live programming at the Arts Center at Duck Creek in Springs comes in the warmer weather, Peter Watrous, the center’s music director, has found a way to provide programming to get audiences through the winter months.

This month, Duck Creek is collaborating with Keyed Up and Bar Bayeux in support of a series of online jazz concerts.

Since the weather has turned cold, Brooklyn’s Bayeux has been supporting New York musicians by providing a safe (audience-free) venue for them. Free concerts are programmed by saxophonist Jerome Sabbagh and streamed live for jazz fans worldwide via the Jazzwise and other Facebook pages.

Keyed Up is a non-profit organization whose Jazz Generation initiative has created opportunities for children and adults, including the Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra and the Jazz Discovery Program which introduces jazz to grade schoolers, often for the first time.

New concerts are offered every Wednesday and the concert series will also be live streamed on Duck Creek’s Facebook page and available on the website for a week following each show.

On January 13, Chet Doxas and Dave Ambrosio (who played live at Duck Creek in 2019) performed in concert with Billy Hart.

The next live concert, on January 20, will feature Immanuel Wilkins, the regular saxophonist for Joel Ross, another Duck Creek alumni.

On January 27, George Garzone Trio, featuring the legendary saxophonist with Peter Slavov and Francisco Mela. On February 3, Otis Brown III Quartet performs, and, finally, on February 10, Peter Bernstein and Steve Cardenas Quartet take the stage.

Review: ‘How Did I Get Here?’ By Bruce McCall

Can this no-nonsense, modest, if not at times diffident, memoir “How Did I Get Here?” by Bruce McCall be the last we’ll see or hear from this talented guy? The artist, illustrator and writer is best known for his over four-decade association with The New Yorker, doing more than 75 covers and many more “Shouts and Murmurs” humor columns. McCall lived for a while in Amagansett and rented in Wainscott, about the time he joined the wacky, witty world of the original Harvard Lampoon, “the first seriously post-stupid comedy forum of the era,” which made satire “a viable presence and ... by Joan Baum
