Jon Kellso’s Hot Five features Jon on trumpet, John Allred on trombone, Rossano Sportiello on piano, Shannon Wade on bass and Marion Felder on drums.
They will be playing classic jazz from New Orleans style to swing era classics and mainstream cookers.
Jon is originally from Detroit, as is Marion, and they, along with Allred and Sportiello, are in the top tier of swinging musicians on the New York (and international) scene.
Wade is among Detroit’s finest.
Jon attended Wayne State University and co-led the first Jazztet there with festival producer Chris Collins.
