Wendell Harrison Swings the Club Series
The previously scheduled evening with Susan Chastain on April 7 has been postponed and replaced with Wendell Harrison’s Detroit Swing Ensemble. The Kerrytown Concert House concert will start at 8:00 p.m. and there will be club seating with large tables close to the stage and a cash bar staffed by SEMJA volunteers.
Wendell Harrison has always been an adventurous reedist who is equally adept at the clarinet and the tenor sax in shifting stylistic contexts. His Swing Ensemble moves in the direction of Django Reinhardt by having both rhythm (Nico Pittman) and a lead (Vaughn Klugh) guitars, plus the solid backing of Detroit’s busiest bassist, Marion Hayden.
The Concert House is located at 415 North Fourth Ave. in Ann Arbor’s Kerrytown district. You can make a reservation by simply calling 734-769-2999 or going to the Concert House website.
