Week One of Jazz Poetry Month Has Sax to the Max!

Jazz Poetry Month begins this week with a stellar line-up of distinguished musicians and sax-driven jazz performances.  If you love the cool sounds of the saxophone at its best, this is a week not to be missed!

Jazz Poetry Month begins this Thursday, September 15th with a concert featuring legendary jazz great, saxophonist Oliver Lake as he debuts new and original poetry and jazz!

On Friday, September 16th, see hometown favorite drummer Roger Humphries share the stage with renowned baritone saxophonist Hamiet Bliuett. Hamiet has been itching to share the stage with Roger ever since he saw Roger play three unique sets during the 2007’s Jazz Poetry concert. This year, the two talents finally take the stage together at last!

Round off your weekend on Saturday, September 17th with international jazz sensations, The World Saxophone Quartet. Oliver Lake and Hamiet Bluiett unite with saxophonists David Murray and Bruce Williams for a mind-blowing union of talents.

Make your weekend sax-tacular!
