Kickoff Concert: Living Jazz Legends + The Young Lions says
The San Diego Symphony’s brand new “Jazz @ The Jacobs” series gets off to an auspicious start with a concert featuring some of the most experienced and beloved working jazz musicians in America today. Appearing onstage together for the first time anywhere will be: alto saxophonist and Jazz Suite for Orchestra composer Charles McPherson, tenor saxophonist and film and TV music legend Tom Scott (in a very rare San Diego appearance), San Diego-based pianist and music director (for Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald) Mike Wofford, studio veteran bassist Henry “The Skipper” Franklin, Cannonball Adderley drummer Roy McCurdy and – straight from LA – the great Barbara Morrison, a favorite vocalist for Count Basie, Doc Severinsen and many others. The concert will open with a set from The Young Lions, a long-standing group of San Diego County’s very best high school jazz musicians. These kids, many of whom have earned scholarships to study jazz, will knock your socks off!
