"What's Your Jam?" Spring 2018 Concert Series: Bob Wylde Trio

Sunday Jun 24, 2018, 2 p.m.

The second concert in our Spring 2018 series features The Bob Wylde Trio. The trio’s sound centers around soft and swinging jazz and they perform all over the New York and New Jersey area. The band is led by jazz guitarist Bob Wylde, soothing vocals by Marty Elkins and featuring the well-known bassist, Mike Richmond - a thirty year veteran of Stan Getz’s band. Mr.Wylde attended the Berklee College of Music from 1974 to 1976 and has been playing guitar for forty years. Ms. Elkins has been free-lancing in New York City and the surrounding areas, appearing at the Falcon Art Center in Marlboro, NY with “The Saints of Swing”, Jazz Vespers at the First Presbyterian Church of Phillipstown, in Cold Spring, NY and various places around the city such as Smalls, Zeb’s Sound and Light, and various small restaurants and private events with the Bob Wylde Trio. She was invited to be part of the Jazz, Blues and Gospel Festival at the Las Vegas Hilton in 2103 and did a tour of Germany with the Martin Sasse Trio after the release of her first CD. Mr. Richmond has been involved in some of jazz's most impressive projects. He participated in the Miles Davis and Quincy Jones-collaborative concert in Montreux, Switzerland, which became Davis' final performance. He subsequently replaced Charles Mingus in the Mingus Dynasty.
