FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The Fairfield Library welcomes back Darrell Courtley for an afternoon of "Gentle Jazz" at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Memorial Room.
Courtley will present selections from what has become known as “The Great American Songbook.” Songs like “Bye, Bye Blackbird,” “Pennies from Heaven,” “Lullaby of Birdland,” “Make Someone Happy” and many more will be included. Courtley plays clarinet and his wife, Mary, is featured on vocals. They are accompanied by a computer-generated rhythm section of piano, bass and drums but expect some musical surprises.
Courtley is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and a longtime musician in northern New Jersey.
