JAZZ WEDNESDAYS SUMMER SERIES
Laguna Beach Live! presents Jazz Wednesdays Summer Series July 11, 2018 featuring Frank Potenza Organ Group
Upon graduating from the Berklee College of Music in 1972, jazz guitarist Frank Potenza embarked upon a prolific career that found him teaching, performing, and recording over the next few decades. A protégé of Joe Pass, Potenza has appeared with a number of well-known musicians, including Dizzy Gillespie, George Van Eps, Mose Allison, and Joe Sample, among others. From 1996 through 1999 Frank toured as a member of the Gene Harris Quartet, performing with the Grammy award-winning pianist at jazz festivals such as the Fujitsu Concord Jazz Festival and jazz clubs such as the Blue Note in New York. He currently plays solo concerts and also leads his own groups, touring in support of his latest Capri Records Ltd. release entitled For Joe.
Frank will be accompanied by Carey Frank on a Hammond B3 organ and Aaron Serfaty on drums, a classic organ trio configuration.
