Posi-Tone recording artist and composer Noah Haidu is evidence that 21st-century jazz can be adventurous, fresh and swing hard. He is an exciting, modern pianist who can play memorable melodies and soulful grooves. His powerful Posi-Tone Records debut SLIPSTREAM garnered rave reviews and 8 weeks in the top 50 national jazz radio charts. His second CD, MOMENTUM, lived up to its name as Noah performed to packed crowds in Washington, DC, New York, Boston, and elsewhere and the rave reviews continued. But Noah goes beyond making great records with a passion for live performance. He has played in New York City at The Blue Note and Jazz at Lincoln Center and abroad from Oslo to Istanbul to Guayaquil, Ecuador. Noah has appeared on stage and recorded with heavyweights such as Mike Stern, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jeremy Pelt, Benny Golson, and many others. The Steinway Gallery of Coral Gables has generously provided a piano. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.

MOCA is located at 770 NE 125th St., North Miami. More info at mocanomi.org or (305) 893-6211. The concert is free for all ages.

South Motors Jazz at Pinecrest Gardens presents: Doc Severinsen & The New World School of the Arts Jazz Band. “Heeeeeeeere’s Johnny!” That lead-in followed by a big band trumpet blast, was the landmark of late night television for three decades. The “Johnny” was Johnny Carson, the announcer was Ed McMahon and the bandleader was the great Doc Severinsen. A Grammy award winner, Doc has made more than 30 albums—from big band to jazz-fusion to classical. Today, Doc has not lost his flair for the outrageous fashion statement or his trademark wit. But his gregarious nature has never interfered with the fact that he has been one of the greatest trumpeters and musicians of the last 60 years, respected in the worlds of classical music, jazz, big band and in the end, has transcended his celebrity and rejoiced in his remarkable ability to simply play his trumpet! Gates open at 6:30 p.m., concert begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased through the web page or by calling 1-877-496-8499.
