The West Tisbury Library and WMVY present our monthly jazz-themed evening with Dave Kish. This month, Dave will present the documentary “Tubby Hayes: A Man in a Hurry” (running time 55m), with a discussion to follow. This documentary looks into the life and work of musician Edward Brian “Tubby” Hayes, and the influence he had on jazz during the 1950s-1960s. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.

Dave has hosted the WMVY radio show “Sunday Morning & All That Jazz” since the spring of 1997, and has always been a champion of all types of jazz, old and new, from all parts of the globe. Always willing to take chances, Dave has greatly expanded his range to include extensive features on jazz vocalists, Bossa Nova, African funk, vintage soul, Latin and European jazz, among many other types of improvised music. A summer resident of the Vineyard since the late sixties, Dave settled here in 1989. He wrote music reviews for the Martha’s Vineyard Times for many years, and hosted a weekly Sunday afternoon jazz jam at the Wintertide Coffeehouse in Vineyard Haven, acting as an emcee for many talented musicians, and spinning many gems from his collection in between sets.
