They’ll preview their upcoming concert Sunday, April 18th at 3 p.m. at Christ Church Presbyterian in Burlington.
The concert, titled Tempus Fugue-it: Celebrating Bud Powell, will feature Bud Powell’s compositions and other pieces that show how his contributions to the bebop style continue to influence musicians today.
