    Dr. Bebop's sublime sound is at the core of the Vermont Jazz Center's identity. Each year he chooses a band that best represents his high level of communication and artistry. This year he will be appearing with saxophone wizard Antonio Hart, Ray Gallon on piano, Eliot Zigmund on drums and Corcoran Holt on bass. It is worthwhile to reflect on the pithy liner notes to Brofsky's now decade-old album, "73 Down," in which Harry Bauld pinpoints the essence of his sound: Howie Brofsky (Dr. Bebop) holds limitless affection for the bebop idiom and the American standards. He possesses a warm tone, understatement, and the ability to improvise what Charlie Parker called "the pretty notes."  Tickets available online, at door, at In the Moment Records, 143 Main St. Brattleboro, & reserved by phone.
