Lifeline Music Coalition is excited to present the 9th annual installment of our signature series – “Jazz – Up, Down, and Around” – and we’re going to a new venue – “SOUTH” located at 600 N. Broad St on The Avenue of the Arts North.
This concert will feature the music and history of some of the jazz world’s greatest innovators – who happen to be from Philadelphia….either born there or moved there…and nurtured their career in Philly. It will include the music and compositions of jazz giants such as: McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Lee Morgan, The Heath Brothers, Billie Holiday, Pearl Bailey, John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Odean Pope, Jamaladeen Tacuma, Bootsie Barnes, Shirley Scott and more…..
As always there will be a performance by a youth ensemble, this year it will be The Will Wright Ensemble, young players from Philly who are making their mark on the jazz scene. The Wisdom Stick will also be performing, bringing their modern approach to jazz and finally, music by one of Philly’s veteran groups –The Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble, with special guest vocalist Elle Gyandoh. All music will focus on Philly players and composers!
