The Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St., will host an afternoon of jazz with the Greg Packham Group on Sunday, Oct. 4, at 2 p.m.
Formed in 1973 in Bridgeport, the Greg Packham Group is one of the longest running jazz groups anywhere. The group plays weekly in the tri-state area to rave reviews. Playing a mix of Jazz, Blues, R&B, and Latin styles, their first album Action-Reaction on Stash records sold well internationally. Recorded by the legendary Rudy Van Gelder, the album had liner notes by Jackie Mclean, who encouraged the project. Their second album, Into the Frying Pan, also recorded by Rudy Van Gelder, featured the drumming of Elvin Jones.
