Jen Allen Ensemble
Friday, May 29 @8:00pm - 10:00pm | $10

This exciting jazz group is the brainchild of jazz pianists Jen Allen and Noah Baerman. With Baerman's organ and synthesizer juxtaposed against Allen's piano, the result is an interactive synergy with a richly-textured timber that is at once striking and perfectly blended. For this performance, the group is rounded out by the exciting drummer Jocelyn Pleasant and augmented by Sean Elligers on trumpet.
Come see how this group finds the sweet spot between modern jazz, classic soul music and other contemporary sounds.

Stanley Maxwell
Saturday, May 30 @8:00pm - 10:00pm | $15

Stanley Maxwell is a Connecticut-based quartet that has built a grassroots name for themselves at colleges and festivals throughout the northeast since 2001. This Saturday is the first time they return to The Buttonwood Tree since June 2003.

The group plays music that blends tight arrangements with intricate group improvisations, and will perform two 45 minute sets, featuring acoustic arrangements of original tunes from the past decades, including three songs that had their world premiere in March 2015 on the "Music at The Russell House" series at Wesleyan University.
