Creole Music Supper Club, in association with Brownstone Entertainment Complex, LLC, proudly present: The Jazz Legacy Series

Combine the exquisite dining experience of Creole with the flavor of Internationally known Jazz Artists... toss in the nostalgia of an ambiance found in elegant Supper Clubs and you have our Jazz Legacy Series. Brownstone Entertainment Complex, LLC; bringing Jazz back uptown to what was once the spawning ground of the Be-bop Era, and its traditions.

It was the late 80s; there was a Band out, touring the South of France, playing Gil Evans Arrangements of Sketches of Spain, conducted by Quincy Jones. At that time the Bandleader was not able to perform all of his solos, due to ill health. Instead, a young man was told to take those solos for Miles.

That young man discovered that he, and Miles shared the same Birthday; Miles took him under his wing, gave him one of his trumpets, and became a major influence in his life, sharing with him some of the insider tools of the trade. This young man became, and is a true exponent of Davis work, as is Jon Faddis of Dizzy Gillespie's work. The cream always rises to the top, just so has he risen to the top of his game; being influenced by Miles, but then finding his own voice in today's times. On Friday March 27th and Saturday March 28th we are pleased to present; the Stellar Mr. Wallace Roney.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
