My work attempts to capture SOUL while depicting positive representations of African American life. My creations are a reflection of my personal values and pay homage to ongoing themes of unity, family, and spirituality.
—Larry "Poncho" Brown
Keystone Korner Baltimore is proud and excited to display a long-term exhibit of the extraordinary artwork of Baltimore's own Larry “Poncho" Brown! These colorful paintings beautifully compliment the musical atmosphere with fluidity, mysticism, unity and pride. Keystone Korner Baltimore feels so blessed to enrich the walls of our club with soulful art that captures the essence and beauty of the city we proudly call home. Come experience the remarkable exhibit for yourself and enjoy the legendary Freda Payne, honoring our First Lady of Song Ella Fitzgerald November 12-14.

This Thursday-Friday-Saturday, Ms. Payne will be performing Live and Online from the Keystone stage with her outstanding band including Frank Owens on piano, Herman Burney on bass and Quincy Phillips on drums. The multi-talented Payne is best known for her singing career, yet she has also performed in musicals and acted in movies over the years, and was briefly the host of her own TV talk show. Born Freda Charcilia Payne in Detroit, Michigan, Payne developed an appreciation of music at an early age (due to such sultry jazz singers as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Billie Holiday).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
