FARMINGTON – A jazz duo will perform at Everyday Music, 205 Broadway, from 12 – 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 22nd. The performance will feature selections from their recently released trio CD, “Christmas Time with The Sinskie Jazz Trio,” with all the proceeds going to Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
The Trio, whose members are Farmington native Brian Sinskie on acoustic bass, Terry Sinskie (formerly Terry Eisen of the Maine based Joy Spring Jazz Quartet) together with West Bath resident Charlie Wing Sr. on drums, released a CD of Christmas songs entitled “Christmas Time with The Sinskie Jazz Trio” to benefit Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The CD is available for purchase at the Everyday Music, and 100 percent of the CD sale proceeds go to Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
As well as being performing musicians, Terry and Brian teach in home lessons, and have been affected by several students, their siblings, and other members of a number of families they teach that have been diagnosed with cancer and wanted to do something to help support them. Brian and Terry also have performed steadily with their own jazz groups, achieving recognition in Downbeat Magazine for performance and composition. While leading her own jazz quartet, Joy Spring, Terry opened for artists Bobby McFerrin and Stephan Grappelli and accompanied such jazz luminaries as Lee Konitz, Al Cohn, Sheila Jordan, Frank Foster, Slide Hampton, Junior Cook, Jamey Aebersold and Roswell Rudd.”
Charlie Wing Sr., jazz drummer, has also had careers in non-musical professions, including oceanographer, NASA lunar space scientist, physics instructor at Bowdoin College and host of his own national PBS series on home improvement. Charlie also developed the Shelter Institute, authored 27 books on home improvement and boating and lived aboard a sailboat for six years, traveling the US East Coast and the Bahamas.”
This latest release has jazz versions of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” and “O Christmas Tree” among others. The CD is available for purchase at Everyday Music and End of the Rainbow Alternatives.
