gypsy swing brunch with doug munro

march 29th

Join us for a very special brunch with Doug Munro. As a New York-based, veteran guitarist, Doug Munro can swing with the best. The two-time, Grammy-nominated artist is fluent in a variety of styles, soul-jazz, Latin, organ trio, rockin’ blues, and gypsy jazz. He’s put out 11 solo albums, published 75 original compositions, and over 300 arrangements for other artists’ recording projects. He’s appeared on 50-plus albums featuring many big-time artists such as Michael Brecker, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Dr. John, as well as earned orchestra credit on the Oscar-winning documentary, “When We Were Kings.”

Munro is also an educator, having formed the Jazz Studies Program at the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College, serving as the jazz program’s director from 1993 to 2002. He still teaches as Director Emeritus, amongst a fine arts company of star-studded faculty (Jon Faddis, John Riley, John Abercrombie, Eric Alexander, and Todd Coolman).

Enjoy a delicious meal while listening to the exquisite sounds of this very special gypsy swing band.
