JUNETEENTH JAZZ: Celebrating the Texas Tradition of Saxophone

at Club Legato

Time: 7:00pm     Day: Friday     Doors: 6:30pm     Ages: All Ages     Price: $25 - $30

As a native Texan, Horace grew up celebrating Juneteenth by attending parades, trail rides, music festivals and cook outs. It was always a day of family and tradition. When he decided to pursue music late in his teens, he was fortunate enough to be mentored by a handful of amazing saxophonists – all of whom had deep roots in music on a national scale that was reflective of the “homegrown flavors” of BBQ, red beans and rice, mac and cheese and cornbread that you could HEAR in their playing. In this performance Horace will honor his teachers, who are his biggest foundational influences – Campbell “Skeets” Tolbert, Hal Tennyson, Conrad Johnson, Arnett Cobb, Don Wilkerson, Jimmy Ford, and Tony Campise. The music will also pull from the repertoire of some “invited guests” such as Ray Charles, Bill Withers, Joe Sample, and The Crusaders. 
So bring your appetite…for a ride you will remember for years to come. Accompaniment by  John Rangel -  piano, Frank Murray - bass, and John Trentacosta - drums.  

HAY is the former chair of the Contemporary Music Department at Santa Fe University of Art and Design.
