JAZZ | Harold Danko with Rich Perry


Way back in 1980, pianist Harold Danko started a tradition: an annual (well, every four years) concert celebrating Leap Day. Beginning at the Jazz Gallery in New York, the concert moved to Birdland and the Five Spot in Manhattan before traveling to various venues in Rochester. For this year's show, Danko will be joined by the formidable saxophonist Rich Perry with Clay Jenkins, trumpet; Charles Pillow, woodwinds; Jeff Campbell, bass; and Rich Thompson, drums, in a program of Danko tunes. Perry also guests with the Eastman Jazz Lab Band at Kilbourn on March 1.

Harold Danko and Rich Perry perform Monday, February 29, at Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $10.
