About Jason Palmer & Jerry Bergonzi
Jason Palmer, who has been seen regularly performing with Kurt Rosenwinkle, Mark Turner, and Ravi Coltrane, currently resides in Boston as an Assistant Professor at Berklee. Jerry Bergonzi (known simply as Gonz), who once toured extensively with Dave Brubeck in the 70’s, continues to call Boston his home and we are lucky that he does.

About Sunday Night Jazz
As legendary as The Press Room itself, the Sunday Night Jazz series has been a staple of the Seacoast jazz scene almost forty years. Born out of Press Room founder Jay Smith’s admiration for pianist Tommy Gallant, the weekly series boasted a house rhythm section of Gallant, Jim Howe, and Les Harris Sr. Across hundreds and hundreds of shows, the trio backed a rotating cast of local, regional, and nationally-recognized players.

For the past decade pianist Ryan Parker has carried the torch, bringing the storied tradition to a new generation of players and listeners, and showcasing some of the best jazz in the Seacoast at The Press Room every Sunday night. Current house band, featuring Ryan Parker, bassist Keala Kaumeheiwa, and drummer Les Harris. Jr. lays down the rhythm most evenings.
