Leron Thomas / 6 Figures / Logan Richardson at 92Y on February 18
Leron Thomas presents a mixed genre event at 92Y Tribeca on Friday February 18. The three artist bill showcases the spirited post-bop talents of Logan Richardson featured with an incredible line up; Keyon Harrold, Sam Harris, Burniss Earl Travis and Bram Kincheloe. The amazingly fun, high energy funk band 6 Figures includes; Louis Cato, Nozomi Yamaguchi, DJ Ginyard, Corey Bernhard, ((D White}} and James Casey are sure to deliver. Returning to 92Y Tribeca following an outstanding set at Jason Moran's 713-212 Houstonians event, Thomas is supported by the talents of Mark Kelley, Nir Felder, Theo Hill, Amaury Acosta and Axel Tosca-Laguart in a genre bending set of vocal and instrumental based music that covers a diverse spectrum, a finely crafted mold that can turn any night into a party.
Mr. Thomastrumpeter, singer, composer and almost comediansang wordy, needling songs about sex and insecurities and character flaws, yelling out private jokes wherever possible. Intermittently hilarious, his set fishtailed through jazz and rock and funk; he hasn't found his cult just yet, but with more songs like Roll Play," he might." Ben Ratliff, The New York Times
