Thursday, March 28, 7:30 pm at Piedmont Center for the Arts
Vocalist extraordinaire Kenny Washington and trumpeter Erik Jekabson deliver the true New Orleans sound and spirit, but with a modern twist. Washington is a New Orleans native and Jekabson has lived and performed in the Big Easy in recent years. They are backed by Jekabson’s New Orleans Sextet: Rob Barics, clarinet; Danny Armstrong, trombone; Dan Zemelman, piano; Joshua Thurston-Milgram, bass; and Evan Hughes, drums. The evening will include traditional New Orleans tunes, both instrumental and vocal, performed in the fun, loose, freewheeling style that is so representative of the Big Easy.
Jazz in the Neighborhood’s Emerging Artist will be drummer Max Cope.
