Robbie's Schedules "Rapology" with Troupe, Bell and Burrage, Plus Shows from Kahil El'zabar's Ritual Trio, Bobby Watson

SOURCE: Published:
Robbie's House of Jazz has announced some additions to their upcoming schedule.

On Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10, the club will present “Rapology," featuring a spoken word performance from poet Quincy Troupe with music from two St. Louis expats, guitarist Kelvyn Bell and drummer Ronnie Burrage, who will come back home for the gig. They'll perform sets at 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., with tickets priced at $20.

On Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7, Chicago-based percussionist Kahil El'Zabar will bring his own group, the Ritual Trio, to Robbie's, having already played the club's “soft opening" with saxophonist Hamiet Bluiett back in August.

Then on Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5, saxophonist Bobby Watson (pictured), a veteran of drummer Art Blakey's band as well as many other high-profile gigs, will make the trip across the state from Kansas City to perform.

(There's no word yet on ticket prices for El'Zabar or Watson, but I'd expect something in the same general range as the Troupe/Bell/Burrage show.)

In other related news, Robbie's will feature the Robert Edwards Big Band every Thursday beginning in October, and the club's Web site is now online.
