Abate to perform in summer concert series

The Summer Concert series sponsored by the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department continues this Sunday, Aug. 2, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at East Ferry Memorial Square with a concert by Greg Abate, one of Rhode Island’s finest jazz musicians and an international recording artist.

Abate is noted by jazz reviewers as one of the best post-Be Bop alto players today. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 1971, and has since gained international recognition performing with artists such as Ray Charles and the Artie Shaw Orchestra.

Bring blankets or beach chairs to enjoy this free concert.

The show is co-sponsored by Liberati & Peretti and Bank Newport. In case of rain, the concert will be held inside the Recreation Center.
