John Esposito Residency
November 2, 9, 16, 23, 30. Good news, local jazz lovers: Now that his new daughter has reached the manageable (?) age of two, pianist John Esposito is out of the house and back on the bench. Raised in Marlborough and now based in Columbia County, Esposito worked with upstate sax legends J. R. Monterose and Nick Brignola before making his mark on the 1980s New York scene with the quintet Second Sight and launching his Sunjump Records label. Recently, he began a Wednesday night residency at the new People's Pub (opened by the Ballinger family, who also own New York's Webster Hall) that sees him working in changeable duo and trio settings. 6pm. Free. Chatham. (518) 392-2337; Thepeoplespub.com.
