    Join us outside the library as we enjoy listening to Abe Ovadia’s Jazz. Bring your lawn chairs and a blanket just in case. This will be a wonderful hour of LIVE music outside the library. Please wear a mask or face covering and practice social distancing.

    As Musicvox Guitars describes, Abe Ovadia is a “jazz virtuoso, one of the most innovative guitarists of our time.” Having emerged as one of the preeminent guitarists on the New York City jazz scene, Times Square New York City says, “You can always count on him to happily claim the responsibility of playing some world-class jazz.” He holds a bachelor’s degree from Berklee College of Music, and a master’s from New York University’s highly acclaimed jazz performance program. He is also a recipient of the Best Guitarist of 2016 Award from Hot House Jazz Magazine.

    Predominant voices in the industry have recognized Abe’s contribution to today’s jazz. In 2010, Jeff Levenson of Warner Bros. Records honored Abe as a “Promising Artist of the 21st Century”, which led to an international tour. Since then, Abe has developed a unique identity on the instrument and as a band leader, featuring an innovative and emotionally-charged energy that is unrelenting. His music has quickly gained the respect of his peers and jazz veterans alike, such as Grammy-award winning trumpeter Brian Lynch, who said, “It has been very enjoyable to play with him, as well as to perform his original music. He is playing at a world-class level.”
