Sean Smith

Jazz musician and composer Sean Smith and his Quartet return to the Fairfield Public Library with new compositions on Sunday, April 3 at 2 p.m. The Quartet features Smith on bass, John Ellis on saxophone, Nate Radley on guitar and Russell Meissner on drums. They perform regularly in New York City and their most recent recording, Trust, received rave reviews. The Quartet will perform in the Memorial Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.

Registration is requested. This musical program is made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Fairfield Public Library.

The Sean Smith Quartet has played together for nearly 20 years. Its member share a similar passion and vision for music and this kinship helps to define a distinctive group sound noted for its lyrical quality. With Sean’s songful and melodic compositions underscoring the Quartet, they create a warm acoustic sound in the jazz tradition, but they will subtly take the occasional odd journey beyond, too.

April is Jazz Appreciation Month (fondly known as “JAM”). Created as an annual event to pay tribute to jazz, schools, organizations and others celebrate with events ranging from free concerts to educational programs. JAM was started by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in 2002.

The Library will be hosting another jazz concert in April, “Gentle Jazz” on Sunday, April 17.

All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free. To register, or for more information on this and other programs, visit fairfieldpubliclibrary.org or call 203-256-3160. Follow the Fairfield Public library on Twitter: twitter.com/fairfieldpublib and Facebook: facebook.com/fairfieldlibrary.
