Lynne Arriale returns to PB County this Saturday for Arts Garage’s Jazz Project

It has been a couple years
since Lynne graced a South Florida
stage. Welcome her back this
weekend at her  solo performance...

Featured Artist of the Month at

July 28, 2012: Jazz Project
7:30pm Spontaneous Combustion!  The Art of Jazz Improvisation
Critically acclaimed jazz pianist, recording artist, composer and educator,
Lynne Arriale’s demonstration will introduce jazz as a “language.”
8pm Lynne Arriale in Concert
Tickets provide admission to both events.

With her tangle of red curls and striking blue eyes, pianist Lynne Arriale is a dynamic and soulful performer. In recent years, Arriale, who teaches at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, has toured and recorded with brilliant musicians — including trumpeter Randy Brecker, saxophonist Bill McHenry and bassist George Mraz — as well as with her own trio. But the focus generally remains on Arriale's bright playing and introspective compositions, even more so on her latest recording, which is aptly titled Solo. And that's exactly how you'll hear her when she performs at Arts Garage this summer.

“Bring your wine. Bring your dinner. Bring your whatever. But make sure you include your ears, heart and soul in the picnic basket.  This concert will touch all three more, and deeper, than any of the summer season at Arts Garage if you are listening and HEARING. Prepare your mind for structured beauty, and being moved from your everyday existence into the world of music, and then safely returned.”
- Charlie Boyer, Jazz & Blues Florida

Upcoming Summer Jazz Project
& Garage Blues Performances



August 11, 2012: Jazz Project, 8pm
Duffy Jackson All Star Quintet
Longtime South Florida jazz fans certainly will be out in force to greet drummer Duffy Jackson, holding court behind his drum kit while swinging ferociously and cracking wise. Not only is Duffy among the swingingest drummers around, he's also one of the funniest. But he comes by his entertainment roots naturally: His dad was legendary jazz bassist Chubby Jackson. And certainly, Duffy has backed his share of legends, among them Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Carter. Now living in Nashville, the drummer returns to South Florida for his Arts Garage gig, where he'll provide the propulsive engine to a roaring All Star gathering of David Gibble - Trumpet, John Michalak- Sax, Dolph Castellano - Piano and Rick Doll - Bass.

August 18, 2012: Garage Blues, 8pm
Barrelhouse Chuck  
Famous Frank & The Nucklebusters Blues Band
Chicago is known for its rich legacy of blues pianists, and Barrelhouse Chuck Goering learned from some of the best. Relocating from Gainesville to Chicago in 1979, he befriended blues-piano great Sunnyland Slim, with whom he studied and traveled for 16 years. This also gained him entry to a fraternity of Chicago blues-piano heroes, including Blind John Davis, Big Moose Walker, Detroit Junior and Little Brother Montgomery. Chuck became a formidable player himself, and has performed and recorded with Jimmy Rogers, Hubert Sumlin, Buddy Guy and Kim Wilson, among others. You can also hear him on the soundtrack to the movie Cadillac Records. For his Arts Garage show, Barrelhouse Chuck will be joined by South Florida faves Famous Frank and the Nucklebusters.
