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 (www.makor.org) 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!
