Each Thursday night for the last 34 weeks there has been a cool jazz concert at the Westport VFW Post 399 at 465 Riverside Ave. Well known area musicians including Chris Coogan, Brian Torf and Westport’s own Jazz Rabbi, Greg Wall of Beit Chaverim Synagogue have given their audience at the Post a great show.

A great buffet is served by Fairfield’s Latina Cantina which is available for $25.00 per person. For those interested in just the music, a $15.00 cover charge is collected solely for paying the band. The Clinton VFW which is also home to the American Legion post, is volunteer-run with bartenders and staff working for tips.

Last night, the Melissa Newman Quartet performed to a packed house. Newman is a well known singer and artist who lives in Westport and her bandmates last night included Phil Bowler on bass, David Morgan on piano and Bob Leonard on drums.  Another Westport musician, Michael Mossman sat in on trumpet for a few songs in their first set.
