Coffee = Joe

Nobody in the Alan Segal Quartet is named Joe.
Eddie Etkins plays saxophone. George Sinkler is on piano. Segal is a bassist, and their drummer is Leon Jordan.
So where does Church of the Holy Spirit Episcopal Church's "Jazz and Joe" get its name? Well, when you think jazz, maybe you also think coffeehouse. So that would be a reference to a cup o'joe. From 7-9 p.m. Thursdays Sept. 9, Oct. 14 and Nov. 11, enjoy live jazz by the Alan Segal Quartet, coffee, and potluck refreshments (bring a dessert and a beverage, if you like). An offering will be taken.
The church is at Sumneytown Pike and Barndt Road, Upper Salford.
Jazz and Joe is sponsored by Philadelphia Federal Credit Union and LPL Financial. Ooooooo!

And don't let anybody tell you that the phrase "cup of joe" is named after former Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels, who banned the serving of alcohol on ships in 1914. The phrase is apparently older than he is.
