Taking the Café’ Libri stage in October is local jazz duo, Two Weeks Notice. Glenn Brookman, who plays the guitar and is the organizer of the group lists Howard Roberts and Miles Davis as his main inspirations. He has been playing in various groups and as a solo performer for more than 20 years. Brookman works hard to dispel common public misconceptions about jazz music. “People have preconceived notions that they won’t get it or won’t like it and so they avoid jazz.” Ted Zarras, local meteorologist and the group’s drummer has been playing percussion for 34 years. “I probably started banging on pots and pans earlier, but let’s just say I started really playing when I was 4.” Zarras says that jazz musicians share a love of the unexpected. “By it’s nature, jazz is improvisational, and jazz musicians learn to expect the unexpected.” What keeps it fresh for Brookmand and Zarras? “It’s never the same thing twice,” says Zarras.
In addition to the sounds of Two Weeks Notice, visitors to the Library can enjoy coffee and desserts by Local Grounds.
