JAZZ: A GIFT TO THE WORLD – a performance with the Nita Zarif Trio
Nita Zarif, one of Hartford’s best and most loved singers since making her debut in her early 20s at Hartford’s now legendary 880 Club — the South End jazz bastion presided over by Al Casasanta, Hartford’s “Godfather of Jazz” — Zarif has set a high standard for jazz singing while displaying her eminently likeable stage-presence.
