(Sarasota, Florida) The Sarasota Concert Association’s free Munchtime Musicales series continues its 2015-2016 season with a program of jazz by The Jazz Trio, featuring pianist and composer Tommy Goodman, bassist Dominic Mancini and drummer Johnny Moore, December 16, noon, in David Cohen Hall at the Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center, 709 N.

Pianist, conductor and arranger Tommy Goodman has been associated with a number of Broadway musicals and with such great names as Cole Porter, Josh Logan, Lena Horne, Sammy Davis, Jr., Louis Armstrong, and many others. Goodman’s compositions have been performed at Carnegie Hall and at the Juilliard and Eastman schools of music. For Munchtime Musicales, Goodman joins forces with two other area jazz talents, acclaimed bassist Dominic Mancini, and drummer Johnny Moore, lauded by critics for “his rock steady beat and tasty solos” that are “lessons in how drums should be played.”
“It’s a lot of fun putting together the smorgasbord of musical styles for Munchtime Musicales, and with this concert we’re definitely jazzing things up,” says Sarasota Concert Association board member and Munchtime Musicales coordinator Katherine Oarr. “David Cohen Hall is sure to be swinging with the rousing, straight-ahead jazz of this dexterous trio.”
