Music & More Winter Series: Joe Mongelli Jazz ...

Presented by Cape Cod Museum of Art at Cape Cod Museum of Art

Ruby Braff, one of Cape Cod’s own, was world-renowned as a later-day proponent of the style pioneered by Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke. In the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, when others were forging ahead with bebop, cool, fusion and hard-bop styles, Braff held true to his identity believing in himself and his audience’s preference for Armstrong-like improvisation on Great American Songbook standards.  His legendary, lyrical and easy style is unforgettable.  This concert pays homage to Braff by recreating some of his most iconic recordings.

Joe Mongelli has been a mainstay in the Cape jazz community since moving to Harwich full time in 2015.  His groups - the Joe Mongelli Jazz Trio and The Cape Jazz Crew have performed sold-out concerts recreating the music of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Frank Sinatra and Art Blakey at many Cape venues.

 

Joe’s 2016 CD WashAshore received high critical acclaim for his creative arrangements of American Song Book and jazz standards, stellar ensemble playing and inspired improvisation.  It can be heard on Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music and is available from Amazon and CD Baby.

 

Joe has a Master of Performance degree from The Manhattan School of Music where he was a featured jazz soloist.  He studied arranging with Don Sebesky.

 

Mark Borgmann, piano, lives in Dennis and plays all over Cape Cod.  Whether it’s jazz, pop, blues or rock ’n roll, Mark does it all.  In addition to playing with the Joe Mongelli Jazz Trio,  Mark performs regularly with the Mojo Kings, the Sharkz Jazz group, the Bert Jackson Quartet, and Pocketful of Soul.  He can often be heard as a piano soloist and accompanying many of the Cape’s most well-known singers at area restaurants.

Michael Ryle, bass, lives in Eastham and studied with Edgar Meyer Sr at the University of Tennessee and began his professional career performing with orchestras in the greater Knoxville area and at the World’s Fair. He moved to New England in 1983 and put aside the instrument to work as a software engineer and study piano but since coming to Cape Cod in 1998 he has picked up where he left off, performing with the Cape Cod Symphony, freelancing jazz and chamber music and arranging and composing for big bands and his own group, Jazzical Cats.
