The Jazz Vespers Quartet
In 2011, the Jazz Vespers Quartet became the house band for Jazz Vespers, a concert series under the direction of Rev. Tom Goldsmith that has been running for 25 years on the eight Sundays before Christmas at the First Unitarian Church in Salt Lake City. Led by co-musical directors David Halliday and Courtney Smith, the JVQ has performed jazz tributes to over twenty different artists including: the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Led Zeppelin, Aretha Franklin, and Bob Dylan, featuring original arrangements by Halliday and Smith. The JVQ’s energy, outstanding musicianship, and passionate, soulful performances ensure packed houses every Sunday night. In summer of 2014, Gracie’s in downtown Salt Lake began featuring the JVQ as the house band of their Monday Night Jazz Jam.]]>
