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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
