Tuesday evening, June 25, Dave’s Corner at Elm Street Grille will present Chris Klaxton and Taylor O’Donnell starting at 6:30 p.m. This jazz duo is appearing as part of their summer tour up the Maine coast and will offer new takes on both standards and newer tunes.

Leaning heavily on the American Songbook, Vocalist O'Donnell and pianist/horn player Klaxton also bring a diverse repertoire to the table, from the classic works of Oscar and Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter and Henry Mancini; to selections outside the jazz realm by artists such as David Bowie, Gotye, Fleet Foxes and Gillian Welch. O'Donnell and Klaxton balance melody and improvisation for not only diehard jazz fans, but also those who appreciate the music of today.

There is no cover charge, but tips for the musicians are appreciated. Elm Street Grille is on Route 1, near the top of the hill on the southside of town.
