The Toledo Jazz Orchestra is proud to present one of its own, saxophonist Mark Lemle and his jazz group at Registry Bistro, located in Downtown Toledo’s historic Secor Building on May 10th at 6:00pm. Mark is the only member to have played continuously with the TJO since it began in 1980.
Joining Mark will be local musicians Eric Dickey on piano, Scott Potter on trumpet, Kevin Eikum on bass, and guest artist Bob Breithaupt, percussionist and Professor of Music from Capitol University in Columbus.
Featured will be music from great jazz saxophonists, including John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker, Cannonball Adderley, and Kenny Garrett.
Of particular note: The original grand piano used at the famous Rusty’s Jazz Café in south Toledo, now owned by Mark and his business, Lemle’s Piano Service, will be moved to the Bistro for this special evening.
