Add to Calendar 2013-02-21 7:30 - 9:00 PM 2013-02-21 Tom Lawton at Arch Street Friends Meeting House Jazz Bridge in Old City Philadelphia! presents pianist Tom Lawton, appearing at the Arch Street Friends Meeting House — 320 Arch Street in Philadelphia, 19106 — on Thursday, February 21st. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are only available at the door. Information: 215-517-8337.

Tom Lawton is one of the area’s most in-demand and most inventive players, composers and teachers. His two-CD set from a few seasons back, Retrospective/Debut, featuring originals and jazz classics for duo, trio, quartet and quintet, remains a critically acclaimed landmark. Tom Lawton intends to perform something special: a seven-movement suite written for a Community Partners Grant via the American Composers Forum, inspired by a residency at the Philadelphia Senior Center. Like the playing of Tom Lawton, Seven Vignettes will no doubt be an inspired, spirited and significant work.

Jazz Bridge is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization dedicated to assisting area jazz and blues musicians in need. The Jazz Bridge in Old City Philadelphia program is one in a series at this venue, along with four other area locales. For more information, visit www.jazzbridge.org/upcoming-events.
