Just Announced!--Jazz Masters: Ray Blue Organ Trio, Internationally Known Tenor Sax Player Joins with Duet to Perform at WCT Performance Space in Ossining August 19th @ 8pm

Ossining, NY  WCT continues its Jazz Masters program with the Ray Blue Organ Trio, featuring world-renowned tenor saxophonist Ray Blue of Peekskill, a New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee who has toured extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. Ray and his trio will perform at Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT)s space at 23 Water St. in Ossining on Saturday, August 19 at 8 pm. Saxophonist, composer, arranger and educator Blue, who has appeared at Africas Grandest Gathering, the prestigious Cape Town International Festival, will share the stage with organist Jared Gold and drummer Dwayne Cook Broadnax.

Blues music has been described as a fusion of straight ahead jazz and rhythmic groove. He has appeared with the likes of Alicia Keys, the Cotton Club All Stars, John Gilmore and many others. A former cast member of the Ray Charles Show which toured in Europe, his festival performances also include the Hartford Jazz Festival; European Union Annex Festival-Dublin, Ireland; Audi Jazz Festival in Brussels; and the Macao Jazz Festival in China.

He has been honored with the Iowa Juneteenth Jazz Legacy Award, the Arts Education Award, and with Peekskill Middle Schools Living Legacy Award for his devoted contribution to introducing young people to music and to encouraging intergenerational sharing of the arts. He consults and presents at schools, colleges, universities and community institutions around the world and is the founder of Cross-Cultural Connection, Inc. a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that promotes jazz culture, performance and education. Blue holds a graduate degree from the University of Iowa, and is an alumni of Wm. Penn University which annually presents The Ray Blue Jazz Award in his honor.

Organist Jared Gold won the 2013 Rising Star on Organ critics poll in DownBeat Magazine and tours internationally with many well-known jazz artists.
