More About

The inaugural two-day festival honors the rich interplay between soul and jazz, often called nu-jazz, showcasing the inventive sampling of DJ Logic, Hammond-B3 grease monkey Joey DeFrancesco, multi-reedist Brian Landrus, and bassist-vocalist Esperanza Spalding. A bandleader is only as good as his sidemen, and in this case, their respective groups are rounded out by consummate players, among them drummer Billy Hart, saxophonist George Garzone, keyboardists Leo Genovese and Ray Angry, vocalist Nadia Washington and bassist Lonnie Plaxico. Spalding closes out the festival with music from her forthcoming, as-yet untitled album, replete with soul covers, standards, and her earthen tones in the upper and lower registers.
March 14-15, 7:30 p.m., 2014
