Leon Thomas is totally locked into the history of this music in Brooklyn. He was the first person to perform at Sistas’ Place and the first person to perform at the East and his last concert was done at Up Over Jazz Cafe founded by the one and only Bob Myers. It is the right thing that we celebrate this master of the Music of the Spirit at Sistas’ Place at this time with this band. In addition, we will be celebrating the Arrival Day of Miles Griffith whose day is May 13th!
