HONESDALE, PA — The Cooperage Project will welcome back to the stage The Kazzrie Jaxen Quartet on Saturday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. Honoring jazz tradition with straight-ahead swing and pushing jazz boundaries with bold improvisation, the Kazzrie Jaxen Quartet strives to express the beauty of a simple melodic line.

The quartet’s repertory includes standard tunes, jazz lines, original compositions, and occasional excursions into the abstract. The group includes Bill Chattin on drums, Don Messina on bass, tenor Charley Krachy and Kazzrie Jaxen on piano.

Kazzrie and friends first brought their inspired music-making to The Cooperage last year. This evening will also serve as a celebration of their newly released CD, the “Callicoon Sessions.”

Donations will be collected at the door. Light fare is available for purchase from The Willow River Cafe and Gallery. This is not a BYOB event. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available through a cash bar by the Hotel Wayne. For more information visit www.thecooperageproject.org or call 570/253-2020.
