It's March and we have something exciting for you. Don't sleep on this one and miss out on a special night. The Who Got The Jazz series, inspired by the classic “Jazz” by A Tribe Called Quest, Who Got The Jazz, brings together live jazz and hip-hop performers collaborating together and paying homage to a jazz legend.

 

This month's featured jazz artist is George Benson; a master guitarist, who later in his career became a hitmaking vocalist. Benson born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, started playing in funky Jazz Organ trios, particularly with B3 legend, Jack McDuff. Benson continued his career working with CTI, Warner Brothers and Quincy Jones' Qwest Records where he recorded highly popular music that displayed his immense talents, yet remained somewhat grounded in Jazz tradition. Since the 1990s, Benson has worked with the Count Basie Orchestra, Chet Atkins, Al Jarreau, reunited with Jack McDuff and created a tribute tour to Jazz/Pop trailblazer, Nat King Cole.

 

The special guests for March’s show are Hiphop and R&B artists, Domi Jo, Justin Graham and Joey Mannarino. They will be joined by the awesome, Who Got The Jazz house band, which features musical director, Nimrod Speaks on bass, keyboardist Luke Carlos O’Reilly and Khary Shaheed on drums. Sitting in to pay special tribute to John Coltrane, is the fiery saxophonist, Jim Dragoni.

 

Who Got The Jazz will be hosted by Sonny The Host. There will be raffles, prizes and more. Click here for tickets and more information.

Philly Jazz Quotes

Jazz is a phenomenon. …it's an element that was created that almost lacks definition. Because it's endless.
