Sistas’ Place 456 Nostrand Avenue @Jefferson, Brooklyn, NY.
Sistas’ Place, 456 Nostrand Avenue, at the corner of Jefferson Avenue, where Jazz: A Music of the Spirit Lives and Culture is our Weapon, continues its 21st season with the music of Resistance, Resilience and Resurgence. This Saturday, November 19th at 9 and 10:30pm, drummer/bandleader George Gray, presents a Tribute to Bobby Hutcherson and Freddie Hubbard, with trumpeter Robert Rutledge, vibraphonist Monte Croft, saxophonist Marquis Sayles, pianist Yoichi Uzeki and bassist Alex Blake.
Last week, George Gray performed a beautifully supporting role to Anthony Wonsey’s wonderful quintet. This Saturday, Mr Gray is back with a special tribute to Bobby Hutcherson, who recently left the planet and Freddie Hubbard who left us a few years back. The two legendary musicians played on many recordings together so it will be exciting and interesting to see what music is chosen for this occasion. With Robert Rutledge and Monte Croft taking on the key roles and George Gray leading, this promises to be something special.
Don’t Miss It!
This Music of the Spirit will sustain you through the challenging times we are experiencing.
