'ALTERNATIVE' GETTING ITS JAZZ GROOVE BACK

0

Feb. 21, 2002 – Last week's first "Friday Night Alternative" poetry and music evening won't be the last, but "we are back in the jazz groove" for this weekend's American Yacht Harbor get-together, organizer Corinne Van Rensselaer says.
Guitarist/vocalist/whistle player Donna Lange hosted "a beautiful evening last week," she said, with poetic participants serious and otherwise, plus two additional guitarists. Now house vocalist/keyboardist "Sunshine" Sally Smith and drummer "Mr. B" will be back in the spotlight with the usual to-be-announced lineup of additional musical talent expected to drop by between 6 and 8 p.m. at the Marlin Deck overlooking the AYH docks in Red Hook.
One of those who read "otherwise" last week, Source contributor Kirk Grybowski, who has become an FNA audience regular, offers this unsolicited endorsement: "The music evenings have become very popular … There are about 30 to 40 in the audience and at least half a dozen performers. Judy [his wife] and I enjoy it immensely."
The music is free, as are wine, cheese and crackers. Fund raising to keep things going comes via the sale of FNA T-shirts and chances on the monthly art raffle at The Color of Joy, Van Rensselaer's art gallery and gift shop, which opens onto the Marlin Deck where "Friday Night Alternative" happens. The February drawing, for a framed print of a Van Rensselaer painting titled "Sunrise," will take place this Friday.
