Savoy Trio Featuring Trumpeter Tim Clarke at the Hotel Henry Summer Jazz Concert Series
Friday, July 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Savoy Trio features Tim Clarke on trumpet and cornet, George Kane on guitar, and Paul Zapalowski on bass. Playing a blend of elegant traditional jazz, New Orleans style, 1920’s jazz, and Great American songbook jazz standards.
Tim Clarke has consistently been heralded by voters in the annual JazzBuffalo Poll as their favorite Trumpeter of the Year for the past five years. Since relocating from Eugene, Oregon to Buffalo, New York in 2007, Tim Clarke has become an integral part of the Western New York jazz scene, performing regularly with many of the area’s top jazz musicians and groups. Currently, Tim performs with his own ensembles – The Time Clarke Soul-Tet and The Savoy Trio. Tim’s ubiquitous presence finds him performing with the likes of George Caldwell, Bobby Militello, and in traditional jazz bands such as The Morgan Street Stompers.
A fifth-generation Oregonian, Tim attended the University of Oregon School of Music, earning the Master of Arts degree in Music Theory in 1993. During his time at the University, Tim received several jazz composition awards and commissions and was active as both a trumpet player and arranger throughout his years in Oregon. From 1992 up until his arrival in Buffalo in 2007, Tim produced original music and sound effects for over sixty computer and console games.
Tim Clarke holds a senior-level music production position at Fisher-Price, where he maintains a busy schedule composing and arranging music for toys, multimedia products, web productions, commercials, and other media.
Tim will be joined by the 2019 JazzBuffalo Poll winner for Favorite Jazz Guitarist of the Year, George Kane (George Kane was the guitarist for the last appearance in Buffalo of the recently departed Freddy Cole) and bassist Paul Zapalowski who is on the faculty of Buffalo State and performs regularly in jazz and with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
