Hackettstown — An all-star lineup of talent performs at the Jazz in January series at Centenary Stage on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. Seven area jazz musicians will come together for musical artistry and a “swinging” good time. “It’s not just jazz, it’s great entertainment,” said Ed Coyne, jazz impresario. The All-Star Jazz Septet will feature Jesse Green on piano, Dennis Jeter on trumpet and vocals, Australian Lisa Parrott on baritone sax, Daniel Gonzalez on percussion, John Jensen on trombone, Evan Gregor on bass and Nelson Hill on alto sax and flute. “It’s phenomenal to have this level of talent here in Hackettstown,” Peter Ward, host of WRNJ’s “Sunday Brunch,” recently said, after a sold-out performance at the first Jazz in January concert. Tickets for the All-Star Jazz Septet are $22.50 in advance, and $27.50 at the door. They are available through the Centenary Stage Company’s box office at 908-979-0900 and online at
