The Anthony Joseph Swingtet has become popular in and around central New York, especially among jazz enthusiasts. The band performs music by some of the most famous jazz composers and performers, including George Gershwin, Benny Goodman, Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, and Syracuse native Jimmy Van Heusen.

Usually performing as a small combo, the Anthony Joseph Swingtet provides something like a chamber music-like jazz setting.

The performance Nov. 3 will feature its primary quintet members: Anthony Joseph of Oswego, clarinet and vocals; Bill Palange of Oswego, trombone; Tom Bronzetti of Liverpool, guitar; Mike Solazzo of Syracuse, acoustic bass; and Karl Sterling of Syracuse, drums.

When the Anthony Joseph Swingtet released its CD in 2007, critic Mark Bialczak described their music as “lovingly performed…played with devotion;” the guitar and clarinet made “great teammates,” and the “swinging upright bass put a big bounce” into this recording.

Homemade desserts, popcorn and beverages will be available for purchase.

Tickets may be purchased on-line at http://oswegomusichall.org/ or at the River’s End bookstore, 19 West Bridge Street in Oswego.

The next concert in the season will feature the singer-songwriters Robin and Linda Williams and Their Fine Group Nov. 17.
