We have enjoyed the HBO documentary series “Foo Fighters Sonic Highways,” particularly the most recent edition that highlights New Orleans. We are thankful that many of the musicians featured (such as The Preservation Hall Jazz Band) on that episode have come through Syracuse for some amazing shows.
Here’s an extended clip with Trombone Shorty, who was the star of last summer’s Syracuse Jazz Festival.
Kofi Jacque, aka One Black Voice, was the featured artist for the Community Folk Art Center’s Journey Through Music of the African Diaspora series on Thursday. He performed selections from his CD/DVD. He also talked about his trips to Africa, his work as a performer with the Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company, and his collaborations with Ellen Blalock.
