Morris Museum's Jazz on the Back Deck 

Jazz on the Back Deck:  Evan Arntzen and Jon-Erik Kellso

Thursday, June 17, 2021 at 8:00pm
Rain Date: Friday, June 18 at 8:00pm

Reedman Evan Arntzen and trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso have performed together for years in the EarRegulars as well as Grammy Award Winning Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks. Following 2019’s “Jazz Crush,” their latest critically acclaimed recording together, Countermelody (Dot Time Records, 2021) features the unique, spontaneous interplay between these two on a collection of newly-arranged songs from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Bennie Moten and Benny Green, as well as a handful of original compositions. Backed by a rhythm section of NYC’s finest (including McLean, Ridenhour and Ronen), don’t miss the sparks flying when Evan and Jon-Erik go to town!

Jon-Erik Kellso – trumpet
Dalton Ridenhour – piano
Tal Ronen – bass
Mark McLean – drums
