Experience Soweto Kinch, the London born alto saxaphonist who has been declared as one of the most exciting young sax stars to hit the UK scene.
Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz
736-38 South Broad Street
August 31, 2005
Tickets: $15, $12 to members.
Though he feasts at the table of jazz, Soweto drinks at the fountain of hip-hop and rap, soaking up the vibe from artists such as Q-Tip, De La Soul, and the Roots. He is not afraid to bring Charlie Parker and Q- Tip into the zone and in doing so upholds a central tenet of jazz that also carries much weight in hip hop: be yourself and be of your time.
Call for tickets: 215-569-9700.
Hosted by WRTI FM's J. Michael Harrison.
