Lazy Seven : Obed Succari says
Great live Detroit jazz and blues in an historic downtown room, filled with artifacts and whisky. This week we're pleased to feature Obed Succari.

You worked hard all week, played hard all weekend, now it's time to be a little lazy and enjoy your Sunday evening.

Jazz may be a uniquely American art form, but Ferndale percussionist Obed Succari says his home country of Panama has contributed plenty to the music, as well.

"For some reason I always felt that we Panamanians were part of jazz, because of the early connections (between) Louis Armstrong and (Panamanian bandleader) Luis Russell," Succari says in an email interview. "Armstrong played for him, then he became his musical director … I am very surprised that Detroit, being highly musically educated, doesn't know about him."
