Pianist Bob DeBenedette has played with the Tommy Dorsey and Harry James orchestras and has accompanied vocalists Marlene VerPlanck and Connie Francis. On Sunday, June 24, he will be the headliner at the New Jersey Jazz Society’s monthly jazz social.

DeBenedette will be joined by bassist Gary Mazzaroppi and drummer Rick Visone. Mazzaroppi once toured with the Lionel Hampton Orchestra and has performed with such jazz legends as tenor saxophonist Stan Getz, drummer Buddy Rich, and trumpeter Clark Terry. Visone, who studied under drummers Mel Lewis and Joe Morello, now leads the Rick Visone Big Band.

Funding for the New Jersey Jazz Society socials has been made possible in part by Morris Arts through the N.J. State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
