What could be better than an afternoon of fine wine and cool jazz on the East End?
Raphael Vineyard on the North Fork plays host to Jazz on the Island’s 3rd Annual Summer Concert Series 2013, featuring the esteemed musician Marc Antoine, on Sunday, June 23. Antoine is a Spanish jazz fusion guitarist and songwriter. NYC/GRP Records has produced several of his smooth jazz albums, including his first smooth jazz album, Classical Soul in 1994 by NYC/GRP. Antoine’s biggest hit, “Cruisin’” was produced in 2001.
Many of Antoine’s songs were No. 1 hits on the contemporary jazz and Billboard charts. He was elected Best New Artist of The Year in 1995 by R&R and won a Gavin Award in 1998. The American Smooth Jazz Awards also named Antoine International Artist of the Year in 2010.
The upcoming performance is one more example of how wineries/vineyards and music seem to be regular bedfellows these days. And why not?
