Greenwood Lake Public Library welcomes the Bob Wylde Quartet for an afternoon of jazz on Sunday, Oct. 20, from 1 to 1 p.m.

The quartet currently consists of Wylde on his guitar, Mike Richmond on bass, Eliot Zigmund on the drums and Frank Noviello as featured vocalist.

Wylde has collaborated with many diverse artists, including Marty Elkins, Jed Levy and Thomson Kneeland. Bassist Richmond, a 30year veteran of Stan Getz’s band, has been involved in some of jazz's most impressive projects. He participated in the Miles Davis and Quincy Jonescollaborative concert in Montreux, Switzerland, which became Davis' final performance. He subsequently replaced Charles Mingus in the Mingus Dynasty.

Drummer Zigmund studied at Mannes School of Music and City College of New York. He spent some years in California performing, eventually moving back to the tristate area. He has worked as a session player for Neil Sedaka, Dionne Warwick and The Pointer Sisters. A resident of Teaneck, N.J., Zigmund has taught at William Paterson College and New York University.

Noviello had spent his formative years in the Milwaukee area, performing in a variety of clubs and venues, including the Milwaukee Summerfest Music Festival, working with the legendary pianist Buddy Montgomery and being the featured artist on Wisconsin PBS.

In the New York area, Noviello has appeared at such notable jazz venues as Birdland, Village Gate, Shanghai Jazz, Kitano and the Blue Note. Festival appearances include featured vocalist for the Dewer‘s Greenwich Village Jazz Festival program “An Evening of Song” and the Jersey Jazz Festival.

Over the last few years, Wylde has led his quartet (and trios) in many venues, primarily in the New Jersey area. October’s concert will consist of mainstream jazz, compositions from the 40s 50s and 60s, with composers such as Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
