Every Wednesday ELIXIR hosts a Jazz Dinner Show & Jam Session from 6:30 to 9:30pm featuring saxophonist/pianist FRED HAAS and vocalist SABRINA BROWN. The duo begins the evening with a different theme each week, performing songs by a specific composer or lyricist, and tunes associated with a particular vocal artist. The dinner show is followed by a jam session, and instrumentalist and vocalists are invited to participate.
FRED HAAS, a Dartmouth grad (’73) who teaches saxophone, jazz piano, improvisation, jazz history, and music theory at Dartmouth College, has performed throughout New England and beyond with countless artists, including Oscar Peterson, Ray Charles, Clark Terry, Lena Horne, Dionne Warwick, Joe Morello, Attila Zoller, and Milt Jackson, and Pat Metheny, who calls Fred “a totally world-class saxophone player.” In 1996, he and Sabrina Brown founded Interplay Jazz Camp in Woodstock, VT, which provides an opportunity every summer for musicians of all ages to participate in a relaxed and supportive learning environment, which includes yoga and meditation, as they focus on the improvisational art of jazz with an experienced, all-star faculty, including renowned musicians such as vocalist Sheila Jordan and pianist Kenny Werner. Fred has produced several CDs for his own JazzToons label, including Interplay, I Thought About You, Strike Up The Band, Friends and Telling Stories, which is a collection of original compositions featuring Haas on saxophone and piano with Gene Bertoncini on guitar and Michael Moore on bass. It is available on the iTunes store. Fred has also recorded It’s About Time, Here’s To Joe and Live at Indian Hill with his long-time friend and musical compatriot, award-winning pianist/vocalist Paul Broadnax.
