Academy Jazz Band with Thomas Chapin Guest Artist Native Soul

7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Cochran Chapel

On Friday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m., in the Cochran Chapel on the Phillips Academy campus, the Department of Music will present the Academy Jazz Band in concert with Thomas Chapin Guest Artist: Native Soul. 

 

Native Soul - drummer Steve Johns, bassist Marcus McLaurine, saxophonist Peter Brainin, and pianist Noah Haidu - is a band that brings together the distinct talents of four very gifted artists.  Their main forte, however, is their musicianship. Their sound is so well blended that the four players display the lushness of tone and sound produced by the Big Bands. The members of Native Soul, however, go beyond big sound and individuality and turn into a quartet that understands and respects each other’s talents making it almost impossible to single out a lead person. Ejazznews.com says, “Native Soul are four team players, four amazing artists that play well together gelling in sync, all of One Mind here laying down a performance that deserves attention, and like their previous outing, impressive to the core.”

 

Works by Ray Ortiz, Rich Shemaria, Clarence Williams, Neal Hefti, Louis Prima, as well as others will be performed.

 

This concert is free and open to the public.

 

Cochran Chapel is handicapped accessible.
