Jazz at The Rittenhouse
Saturday, May 29, 2021 May 29, 2021 May 29, 2021 The Rittenhouse
Tom Moon (tenor saxophone/flute) leads Jazz Casual, one of several Moon groups performing regularly in the Philadelphia area. To us, music begins with great melody – we play torchy ballads and Great American Songbook tunes, as well as jazz and bossa nova classics and sleek, ear-pleasing originals. Moon’s various projects appear regularly at Time Restaurant and Whiskey Bar, Milkboy Philadelphia, The Four Seasons Hotel, World Cafe Live and other venues. Chris Aschman is one of Philadelphia's most active freelance musicians. As at home on the steelpan as he is on the trumpet, he brings a versatile and individual touch to the many ensembles he performs with. Originally from Baltimore, he studied jazz trumpet at the University of the Arts and soon found himself immersed in Philadelphia's cultured music scene.
