Event Length (Approximate):

1 hour, 40 minutes
without intermission

Celebrating eight decades of the venerable recording label, three jazz stars and three stellar bands will sizzle Stage One over two performances. “Kandace Springs has a voice that would melt snow” (Prince); she brings her trio and her deep respect for Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. James Francies has worked with jazz royalty from Christian McBride to Pat Metheny and popular artists from Lauryn Hill to Chance The Rapper (“No Problem”). You can catch him with the Roots on Jimmy Fallon from time to time. Performing with his trio, he’s “a pianist with liquid dynamism in his touch” (New York Times). Finally, James Carter “can be sumptuously romantic or exhilaratingly funky… He’s at his earthiest and most accessible with this classic Hammond organ trio lineup” (The Guardian). Performing here with just such an organ trio, he has 18 recordings under his own name, and has appeared with including The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Ginger Baker (Cream), Kathleen Battle, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Madeleine Peyroux and Marcus Miller, among others. Each artist will perform their original material separately, coming together at the evening’s end to perform a selection(s) from the historic Blue Note catalogue.
