A Jazz @ The Jacobs Concert*
Just as popular melodies find new life and perspective with every jazz improvisation, so too is jazz music constantly revitalized by the emerging artists who fall under its spell and make it their own. In the spirit of “Hearing the Future,” this concert, curated by Jazz @ The Jacobs Series Curator Gilbert Castellanos, will feature trumpeter Josh Evans, vocalist and San Diego-native Johnaye Kendrick, pianist Joshua White and other innovative young musicians. This concert is part of the Festival of New Trumpet Music West
The Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT) has a distinguished 16-year history in NYC and is collaborating with UC San Diego Extension to present the first-ever West Coast edition of the festival, FONT West, from Jan 20-27. Two FONT West events, Stephanie Richards’ "Take The Neon Lights" (Fresh Sound, Jan 25) and "Generation Next" (San Diego Symphony Jazz @ The Jacobs, Jan 26) are also part of the "Hearing The Future" festival.
