Here comes a shot of real jazz to start Tampa’s fall arts season: The Thomas Carabasi New Standards Quintet kicks off the Tampa Jazz Club’s new slate of shows at HCC in Ybor City, Sunday, Aug. 26 at 3 pm.
The highly regarded Sarasota-based drummer & Ringling College photography prof will be joined by pianist John O’ Leary and bassist Alejandro Arenas (both from La Lucha), saxophonist Jeremy Carter, and trumpeter James Suggs.
The group plays “a mix of jazz classics with a contemporary twist, along with lesser-known material by great jazz and Brazilian composers (think Mingus, Jobim, and Pharoah Sanders, for starters),” according to the press notes.
The Jazz Club concerts are held in the college’s beautifully appointed, acoustically pristine 246-seat Mainstage Theatre.
