For 150 years, The Bethany Baptist Church of Newark has been one of the leading African American houses of worship, and for 20 of those years, the Church has featured monthly jazz in its Saturday evening Vesper services.

January’s featured performers are the Joe Locke Trio. Vibraphone virtuoso Joe Locke pushes the envelope of what the vibes can be. He has performed and recorded with musicians including Grover Washington Jr, Raul Midón, Kenny Barron, Eddie Henderson, Cecil Taylor, Dianne Reeves, Eddie Palmieri, Ron Carter and The Beastie Boys.

Join us for this free event at Bethany Baptist Church, 275 W Market Street, Newark, New Jersey.
