One of our correspondents, LEM J, captured this photo during Saturday’s Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival (Delaware). The festival also included some of the artists who made sweet music in Syracuse this summer, such as Nick Colionne and Gerald Veasley.
We look forward to experiencing the musical synergy of Joyner and Albright at the CNY Jazz Black History Month Cabaret.
Special thanks to Denny Santangini.
Joyner will perform in Syracuse with Selina Albright for the CNY Jazz Black History Month Cabaret. Later this month he will appear at the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival.
This was a week of returns here in Syracuse: The return of Nuf Said (Jazz in the City); the return football season; the return of Dr. Marc Lamont Hill to speak at SU, but maybe our favorite was the return of bassist Gerald Veasley. Veasley came to throw down for the FunkFest 2k16 (New York State Fair) with a band of musical titans, including Chuck Loeb and Walter Beasley.
Beasley came down from Boston, while Loeb made his way to Syracuse from Spain.
Veasley was last in town for the Northeast Jazz & Wine Festival in Clinton Square in 2013.
Beasley will play the Howard Theater in DC next month, and Loeb played the Low Country Jazz Festival in SC today.
It seems Lettuce and Soulive sax player Sam Kinninger is popping up all over the area. He played with The Dave Matthews Band at the Lakeview and last night we saw him jamming with Brownskin in the World Beat Pavilion for the Northeast Jazz & Wine Festival. Believe it or not, we first met Kinninger when he had a gig in Hanover Square back in the day when the Jazz & Wine Festival was known as Jazz in the Square. He invited us into his show (at a bar) and we’ve been following him ever since.
