JAZZ AND AMERICAN MUSIC CELEBRATION WEEK
Wycliffe Gordon presents:
Russell Gunn, featuring Dionne Farris
Please join the AU Music Department and Wycliffe Gordon for “Jazz and American Music Celebration Week.” These concerts range from Americana Jazz with the Kentucky Serenade, featuring pianist Tim Brumfield and special guest vocalist Laurel Masse, to classic big band swing with AU Jazz and the Conservatory Jazz Ensembles. We will also present the neo soul and R&B of the Russell Gunn Quartet, featuring Dionne Farris to soulful blues, funk, and rock and roll stylings of GG and the Tones, featuring Paisley Gordon and the Electrik Krazy Orchestra.
Since Russell Gunn first appeared on the music scene and introduced us to his Ethnomusicology projects to what he now calls Krunk Jazz, he has continued to trudge a path that shares how he creates music by drawing on his roots in jazz, funk, soul, and hip hop. Neo-Soul is the style it’s been given.
