Greg Abate will play at East Ferry Sunday

The Jamestown Summer Concert Series will feature Greg Abate on Sunday, Aug. 5, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at East Ferry Memorial Square. Abate is one of Rhode Island’s finest jazz musicians and a world-class alto sax player. He is lauded by jazz reviewers as one of the best post-Bebop alto players today. Since graduating Berklee College of Music in 1971, Abate has gained international recognition performing with the likes of Ray Charles and the Artie Shaw Orchestra.

The concert is free to the public and concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own blankets or beach chairs. In case of rain, the concert will be held inside the recreation center.
