MDC Arts and Philosophy Department will continue its successful jazz series, Jazz at Wolfson Presents, with singer/saxophonist Jimmy Cavallo at noon, Wednesday, Dec. 2, at MDC’s Wolfson Campus.

 

Cavallo has been entertaining audiences for more than 60 years. A rock ‘n’ roll pioneer, he and his band, The House Rockers, headlined the 1956 film Rock, Rock, Rock! alongside Chuck Berry, Connie Francis and Frankie Lymon. In addition to his rock ’n’ roll roots, Cavallo performs a wide variety of styles from the 1940s, 50s and 60s. His love for the American songbook and respect for Frank Sinatra, Louis Prima, Ray Charles and Bobby Darrin are displayed in his unique vocal style that could make him the very last of a bygone era.

 

“This is a real treat for me to have Jimmy featured with this concert series,” says series director and guitarist Dr. Michael Di Liddo. “I have known him professionally and personally for over thirty-five years and have watched him fascinate crowds as an entertainer and accomplished musician. He brings his unique talents to the Wolfson Campus for a lunch-time event that I am certain will not be forgotten.”

 

All Jazz at Wolfson Presents concerts are free and open to the public.
