IN oRBit: COUNT, BARRON, THE WHOLE DECK

You find the most interesting people passing through town — and over in the pixelated pages of Red Bank oRBit, we try to flag them down and introduce them to you.

Today’s edition of our satellite site for culture vultures offers up a special treat — a conversation with Kenny Barron (left), the 2010 NEA Jazz Masters award winning pianist who’s coming to the Count’s Crib this Thursday as a headline attraction in the touring Monterey Jazz Festival Allstars. We asked Red Bank’s own globe-trotting maestro and jazz expert Joe Muccioli to sit down with for a chat with this most formidable cat (we’re not worthy; we’re not worthy).

wiliamdcohansmallBefore all that, we’ve got a reminder that this Wednesday evening brings a rare opportunity to meet investigative journalist and bestselling business writer William D. Cohan (right), the author of the all-too-real life thriller House of Cards: A Tale of Hubris and Wretched Excess on Wall Street. He’ll be bringing his tense account of the collapse of  Bear Stearns to Kim Widener‘s NovelTeas Authors Aromas & Gifts on the Left Bank of Red Bank for an event that’s catered by Monmouth County’s own international celebri-chef David Burke.

Beautiful music, symphonic aromas, ominous notes of ruin — it’s all in the air, today and all week long in Red Bank oRBit!

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
