Gallery Suite Jazz Series - October
Welcome to the Gallery Suite Jazz Series! Experience a unique, intimate music showcase in a hip, urban raw studio space hosted by saxophonist Phil Denny. Open wood ceiling, hardwood floors and exposed brick walls create the ideal space for a night of cool jazz.
You and your guest can expect the finest level of artistry from musical talents from around the state, bordering states and Canada. With a limited seating capacity, people present will feel as though the music is being performed just for them.
This month's featured artist is Detroit native and world-renowned drummer, Ron Otis.
Ron Otis is one of the most established sidemen in contemporary American jazz. The Detroit-based drummer is known for his versatility, improvisation and impeccable timing -- incorporating syncopated rhythms and funky accenting. Mr. Otis toured with guitarist Earl Klugh and Grammy award-winning pianist Bob James for over a decade and usually plays alongside bassist Al Turner. His first solo album, aptly titled "Up Front," focuses the spotlight on Otis' compositional and arrangement skills. The instrumental full-length CD is playfully melodic and quite daring for a debut CD. Call it contemporary, nu or smooth, this is modern jazz in its purest form; all chops, few frills and no lead vocals.
