Sammons Center for the Arts presents Sammons Jazz: A Grand Night for Swinging
The opening set by The Brethren features Sammons Jazz Artistic Director and Steinway Artist Arlington and drummer Will Kennedy, a 14-year member of the storied Grammy Award-winning ensemble, the Yellowjackets. These friends groove with a rousing exploration of jazz and improvisation using just two percussion instruments, the piano and drums.
Steeped in the grand tradition of the Texas Tenors, saxophonist Quamon Fowler dazzles audiences with his amazing musical chops. He fronts Q and The Crew, a gifted quintet that includes Carl Wagner on alto sax, Colin Campbell on piano, Young Heo on bass, and Terence Hobdy on drums.
