Saturday June 10 at 1:30 p.m. Live Jazz with Ralph Bowen Trio. Ralph Bowen leads a crack jazz trio into the Library for an exciting afternoon of music featuring Jared Gold on hammond b3 organ; Michael Baggetta on guitar; and Bowen on drums. Ralph Bowen made his mark on the New York jazz scene in the mid-1980s recording four records for Bluenote as co-leader of OTB-Out of the Blue. He began touring and recording with pianists Horace Silver and Michel Camilo. In the 1990s, Bowen performed and recorded with Renee Rosnes, Hank Jones, Orrin Evans, Jim Beard, Shirley Scott, Benny Carter, and Trudy Pitts. Ralph established what has become a long-term association with bassist Charles Fambrough, recording numerous CDs together in a variety of settings.
