About The Evening’s Performance
A fixture at The Press Room for years, Gray Sargent makes his return with Marshall Wood on bass, Les Harris Jr. on drums, and Jeff Stout on trumpet. Gray has been featured along side luminaries as Dave McKenna, Illinois Jacquet, the Artie Shaw Orchestra, and for the past 25+ years with the incomparable Tony Bennett.
About Sunday Night Jazz
As legendary as The Press Room itself, the Sunday Night Jazz series has been a staple of the Seacoast jazz scene almost forty years. Born out of Press Room founder Jay Smith’s admiration for pianist Tommy Gallant, the weekly series boasted a house rhythm section of Gallant, Jim Howe, and Les Harris Sr. Across hundreds and hundreds of shows, the trio backed a rotating cast of local, regional, and nationally-recognized players.
For the past decade pianist Ryan Parker has carried the torch, bringing the storied tradition to a new generation of players and listeners, and showcasing some of the best jazz in the Seacoast at The Press Room every Sunday night. Current house band, featuring Ryan Parker, bassist Keala Kaumeheiwa, and drummer Les Harris. Jr., lays down the rhythm most evenings.
