BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Friends of the Bronxville Public Library present "All That Jazz...The Glenn Alexander & Oria Aspen Duo" on Sunday at 4 p.m. in the Yeager Room.
Acclaimed jazz, rock and blues guitarist Glenn Alexander has played and recorded with some of the world’s finest musicians, with many recordings released under his own name. Originally from a tiny farm community in Maize, Kan., Alexander took up guitar at the age of 12, and soon became obsessed with it, stating that “music changed my life forever.”
He has spent many years touring, performing, and teaching around the world with many well-know musicians and entertainers. He served on the faculty for the New School in New York City for 18 years, and for the past 20 years has been director of jazz studies at Sarah Lawrence College.
Singer songwriter Oria Aspen released her debut CD "Yellow Paint" at the age of 17 and is proving to be a musical force to be reckoned with. Aspen is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, playing piano, flute, and percussion.
The duo will perform jazz standards and classic songs by Billie Holiday, Etta James as well as blues and originals.
