The Puffin welcomes back Teaneck's Alex Collins with a trio of highly accomplished jazz musicians including Alex Hernandez (bass), who recently performed at Symphony Space’s “Jazz for Obama 2012,” Jaimeo Brown (drums), Jazz Ambassador and William Paterson graduate, and Alex on piano. After years of appearing in "JazzJams at the Puffin" while at Teaneck High School, Alex earned his Bachelors Degree in 2007 at Eastman School of Music, where he also received the Wynton Kelly Jazz Foundation Award; he went on to earn a Masters' Degree at Manhattan School of Music in 2009. This jazz lovers’ evening will begin with a set of standards and originals performed by the trio plus a guest horn player, to be announced. After the first set, Alex will begin calling musicians up to sit in with the band as they jam with jazz standards. Bring instruments!
