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:
