Jazz aficionados packed the Unity of Naples Church this past Wednesday in a memorable and swinging concert presented by noted area pianist, Stu Shelton.
Most of the artists who performed -- there were 10 in all -- also perform locally and would rival "national" artists on the jazz scene. Gauging by the level of response from the sold-out house, the audience agreed. Shelton presented a varied and satisfying program of swing, bop, and touches of modernism. The players on hand were presented in various groupings to spotlight their unique talents. The only constant throughout was Shelton, who played for everyone. Cole Porter's "Everytime We Say Goodbye," Bernice Petkere's "Close Your Eyes" and Ellington's venerable "Take the A Train," were performed by the duo of Dean, singing and playing drums simultaneously, and Shelton. After an intermission, singer Carla Valenti, Shelton and drummer John Lamb performed Billie Holiday's fondly remembered "God Bless the Child," done as an up-tempo swinger; Shirley Horn's touching "Here's to Life" and Ellington's "I'm Beginning to See the Light." Indeed, Zottola's Expandable Jazz Band, with Shelton, saxophonist Jerry Zawicki, drummer John Lamb and Shelton, often works seven nights per week to consistently crowded and enthusiastic houses.

Stu Shelton, who also serves as the Unity Church's musical director, deserves a great deal of credit for every aspect of this concert, which was actually more like a mini-festival. He paced it beautifully and proved to be quite the genial master of ceremonies. It all worked.

Jazz aficionados packed the Unity of Naples Church Wednesday in a memorable and swinging concert presented by noted area pianist, Stu Shelton.
