Foreign Affair at Side Door Jazz Club


This Friday July 19th and Saturday 20th, Foreign Affair Quartet will be performing at Connecticut’s newest and hippest Jazz venue, the Side Door Jazz Club, 85 Lyme Str, in the town of Old Lyme, CT starting at 8:30PM, After a successful 7-concert Japan stint and several week-long engagements at Dizzy’s Jazz Club, the Grammy-nominated (2008 and 2010 for Best Latin Jazz Album) band features a renewed all-star constellation of virtuoso instrumentalists of world-renown: Christos Rafalides (vibes), John Benitez (bass), Samuel Torres (percussion) and Hector Martignon (piano/accordion/leader) and will perform a brand new, recording-ripe repertoire of the unique brand of Latin, Brazilian and World-Jazz that has distinguished this band for 15 years, as well as some of their vintage compositions.

The Side Door Jazz Club is housed adjacent to the venerable Old Lyme Inn, an exquisite Bed and Breakfast opened in 1956 in a former farm dating from 1856. Across the street is the Old Lyme Art Society, once home of the American Impressionist Movement.

Come… enjoy art, history, geography, haute cuisine and support world-class live Jazz while checking out this beautiful new venue for Jazz in the North East!Image
