Standard Time Jazz Plays Downtown
Standard Time Jazz is based in Wooster.
The group boasts a membership of Eric Fairhurst, playing woodwind instruments such as saxophone, flute and clarinet; Andy Cary playing guitar; Ed Rindfleisch playing the upright bass and Dennis Bartelheim on the drums.
In regards to the group’s beginnings, Band member Bartelheim, said “I have been playing with the band for 10 years, but Andy Cary and Eric Fairhurst had been playing together for years.”
Later on, Cary and Fairhurst added Ed Rindfleisch to the group and 10 years ago, the band added Bartelheim.
Standard Time performs locally, at the Wooster Inn, weddings, City Square Steakhouse and other local venues.
On the group’s website standardtime-jazz.net you can listen to records of a variety of their repertoire. A few examples are: “Satin Doll,” “Time after time” or “Wave.”
Standard Time’s next scheduled gig is Dec. 5 at Wooster United Methodist Church at 7 p.m.
