Tiny Joe Comes to Tuesday Jazz at Public

For years (from the 1960s through the 90s) "Tiny" Joe Eleazar was one of the more popular jazz vocalists in the Hartford area. He's a great "blues shouter" in the style of Jimmy Rushing (from Count Basie's Band) and has a repertoire of songs that stretches back decades.

Haven't heard or read his name in some time but he's coming to Public tonight (Tuesday April 21) to perform with a group featuring Don De Palma (piano), Bob Laramie (bass), Jimmy Biggins (tenor saxophone) and Tuesday Jazz curator Trevor Davis drums). They'll play from 6 - 9:30 p.m.

Here's a video of "Tiny" Joe in action:
