SURPRISE JAZZ JAM

Patrons who arrived at the Grateful Deli in the Red Hook shopping plaza Sunday were met with more than the usual bill of faire. Keith Johnstone, Jazz choir director and piano lab instructor at Eudora Kean High School brought a Jazz septet to the restaurant that served up some spicy dishes.
The group played from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to the delight of those who happened to stop by. Johnstone led the ensemble through the standards "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" and "What A Wonderful World" from his seat at the electric keyboards. John Coltrane's Blue Train" preceded the closer, a funky version of "Air Mail Special".
The youthful musicians enjoyed a carte blanche lunch presented by the house and most patrons that lingered to the end seemed grateful to the deli for gastronomic and musical delights.
