Prospect Lefferts Gardens: Jazz @ the Inkwell

Jon MengesPLG Arts is a neighborhood nonprofit that promotes a creative community by supporting local artists and their work. Their programming enable artists to communicate with one another, engage in each other’s work and create a sense of community in the neighborhood.

Their Jazz @ the Inkwell series continued last Friday with a performance by Grumpaphone, a modern jazz trio from Brooklyn.

On Friday, June 13th, The Jon Menges Quartet will perform their creative combination of swing, Latin and contemporary jazz.

A trumpeter, composer, arranger and music copyist, Jon Menges has toured all over the globe performing music.  His quartet’s performance of classics and originals will be a real treat for anyone who likes their music served up with style!

IN Trio will perform on June 27th and feature original jazz performances. T. Holmes at New York City Jazz Recorder described IN Trip as performing “intriguing originals with telepathic improvisation”.

Inkwell Jazz Comedy Cafe has been home to top comedy performers and live jazz acts for nearly a decade. Grab a drink and enjoy the smooth sounds of local musicians!
