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.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
