Sammons Jazz: Ladies Jazz Night

November 7 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

- $45

The talented and inspirational saxophonist Rachella Parks-Washington blows into Sammons Jazz with her trademark uplifting jazz sounds. Since 2001, when she was diagnosed with sarcoidosis, Rachella has concentrated on the power of music as a healing element. Joining her onstage for the first set are Nate Young on piano, Leonard Howard on violin, Chris DeRose on guitar, Jared Durham on bass, Vol Thompson on drums, and Mark Whitsett on percussion.

Two outstanding vocalists, Andrea Wallace and Simone Jackson, soar into the second set as they pay tribute to the memorable collaboration of Carmen McRae and Betty Carter. They are backed by fellow alums of Dallas’ famed Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts: Fredrick Sanders on piano, Braylon Lacy on bass, and Andrew Griffith on drums.
