Jazz Vespers At St. Timothy's Episcopal Is Oct. 7

Monday, September 24, 2012

Jazz Vespers at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church, 630 Mississippi Ave., Signal Mountain, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 7, at 5 p.m.  All are welcome to attend this service.  There is no admission charge, but a freewill offering will be gratefully received.

Kathy Tugman and the David Walters Trio have programmed an enticing array of songs, which will cast the secular rhythms and messages of jazz in the light of the Vesper candle.

  Never risking a charge that “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” the band will offer up crisp versions of standards like Cole Porter’s “Easy to Love” and Irving Berlin’s “How Deep is the Ocean” as well as lesser known gems like “Here’s to Life” by Phyllis Molinary and Artie Butler and “Falling in Love With Love” by Rogers and Hart.  This now timeless music will be offered between apt scripture lessons and poetry readings.  The Trio will play intriguing new arrangements of tunes like Oscar Peterson’s “A Child Is Born,” and Kathy and the boys will throw new light on hymns like “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” and “Stand By Me,” and then freshen up the traditional tune, “Jesus on the Main Line.”  But above all, the jazz style will be intertwined throughout the entire program.
