Art, books and all that jazz
SHARON â€” The Hotchkiss Library got all jazzed up on Sunday night. More than 50 people crowded into the snug space, not for a book lecture, not for a book signing, but for a jazz concert by the Scott Heth Jazz Trio.
With a drum set, a stand-up bass and a keyboard set up in between the fax machines and the â€œmysteryâ€ books section, the band played a selection of jazz standards for a receptive audience. Library patrons were encouraged to ignore the typical â€œQuiet, itâ€™s a libraryâ€ rule.
The performance was held in conjunction with the libraryâ€™s showing of jazz-related art by Trio drummer Paul Bacon and Bob Parker, who also performed at the concert.
