Join the Library for the 2022 Summer Festival Jazz Concerts. Sponsored by the Friends of the Coronado Library and Hotel Del Coronado, concerts will take place every other Friday from June 3-August 26. Doors will open 15 minutes prior to each performance.
Closing out our Summer Festival is vocalist Joe Bourne presenting Great Gentlemen of Swing Blues and Pop. The repertoire will be a range of music from Lou Rawls. Frank Sinatra and Friends, Al Jarreau, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis, Perry Como, Louis Armstrong and a taste of Motown.
Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Joe Bourne was inspired by many of the big names of Jazz and popular music that toured the Boston area. Whether it's a swinging rendition of the fun song 'Goody Goody,' Oscar Brown's philosophical 'Dat Dere,' Errol Garner's romantic ballad 'Misty' or his special tribute to the great Nat King Cole, Joe always captures the audience with his own style, warm mellifluous jazz baritone voice, and dynamic showmanship. Joe has shared the stage with Natalie Cole, Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Dionne Warwick and several other jazz and popular music greats.
Over the years Joe has received several prestigious awards such as The Diamond of the Year award presented by The Bund Botschafter Ohne Grenzen, and the Kunstler des Jahres (Artist of the Year award), both for top-class entertainment in Germany. He has also been honored with the Silver Orpheus in Bulgaria and the Jimmy Kennedy award in Ireland, both for his special presentation of Gershwin's 'Summertime.'
