The Great American Songbook with the Steve Teti Jazz Combo as Sounds of a Summer Night continues at Reeves-Reed Arboretum Aug. 21

August 8, 2013 at 10:00 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - Described  as “America’s classical music,” the Great American Songbook is a canon of the most important and most influential American popular songs of the 2th century. Principally taken from the scores of Broadway musical theatre and Hollywood films from the 1920s through the 1950s, these songs, with witty, urbane lyrics and teasingly unexpected rhymes, combine memorable melodies which have endured them throughout the years.

Reeves-Reed Arboretum is proud to present the Steve Teti Combo, headed by jazz pianist Steve Teti, on mapWednesday, August 21, as the Arboretum continues the summer concert series, Sounds of a Summer Night. The combo will feature Teti on the keyboards, accompanied by a sax player and vocalist. Both a jazz and classical pianist, Teti studied music at the Manhattan School of Music. 

Originally from Maplewood, he currently resides in Hoboken. Steve led a jazz trio at the Highlawn Pavilion for three years and is currently the pianist at The Manor in West Orange.  He also performs regularly with the Stardust Big Band, a 17-piece orchestra.

Getting a Handle on Thanksgiving

This year, on our National Day of Thanks, I would like to express my gratitude for having hands.
