Don Glaser Jazz Trio to Perform in NYC in October

The Don Glaser Jazz Trio will be performing at Jules Bistro on two Sunday evenings, October 8 and October 22, from 7:30 until 10:30. Glaser will be performing with Peter Traunmueller on drums and Nate Brown on bass.

Their style has been compared to the Nat King Cole Trio.

Glaser’s singing has been compared to that of Chet Baker, Michael Franks, Bobby Troup and Mel Torme. He was selected as Jazz Musician of the Year in Southern California, from where he moved. One of his earlier CDs, entitled “Don Glaser,” featuring many of his own compositions and including jazz greats Ray Brown, Bill Perkins and Shelly Manne, was designated Cash Box Magazine “Feature Pick” and received Grammy consideration. He has performed with Bobby Troup and recorded one of his songs at his request. He has also performed with Tom Harrell.

A subsequent CD is entitled “Slices of Life,” and features Ted Nash and Brian Lynch. Songs from both CDs can be found on Spotify, iTunes and YouTube.

Glaser has performed at Birdland in NYC, Paris, Milan, Toronto, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles and Israel. His material includes standards by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins.  His own whimsical original compositions speak of a variety of subjects such as “Strawberry Jam,” “Shopping,” “Moving,” “Love,” “Teaneck NJ,” “San Diego” and “Will I Ever Grow Up.”

The trio can be viewed on YouTube by Googling “Don Glaser Jazz Trio Live at the Bitter End.”

Jules Bistro is located at 65 St. Marks Pl, New York, NY 10003, and can be reached at 212-447-5560.
