Al Hirschfeld Tribute

The late, great Al Hirschfeld was an early supporter and huge fan of the original HFQ -- he came to see the band several times at The Algonquin, sketched us in his inimitable style and even gave us a quote "The best jazz I've heard since the 20's!" (he was 98 at the time). Following his death, Mrs. Hirschfeld invited Howard over to their home to have a look at his extensive collection of old jazz 78s, which led to the idea for this show. On Wednesday, March 15 at MAKOR ( members of the original Howard Fishman Quartet, (including Russell Farhang on violin and Peter Ecklund on cornet plus Andrew Hall on bass) continue their return to active duty with a very special tribute to Al Hirschfeld, playing a program of his favorite music. Don't miss it!
