JAZZ AT INTERSECTION continues on Tuesday July 20, 2004 at 8:00 PM with Howard Wiley Vocal X, a new ensemble directed by local saxophone powerhouse Howard Wiley featuring two vocalists - legendary Bay Area jazz singer Faye Carol and exciting young scat vocalist Lorin Benedict, who has recorded with Steve Coleman. This is our 56th Jazz At Intersection concert since the series' inception in 1999. The mission of Jazz At Intersection is to create a place where jazz is the priority, where we are able to promote dialogue about the art form, where we explore the jazz language with our community, and where emerging and experienced composers are encouraged to experiment with new forms. Understanding the absence of a monolithic jazz paradigm, we have consistently presented a multiplicity of styles, cadences, and rhythms that constitute a contemporary definition of jazz. We invite our community to join us over the course of successive Jazz At Intersection performances to directly and intimately experience the incredible diversity that America's indigenous art form represents. Howard Wiley delves deep into jazz tradition and states his influences while looking to the future and beyond. His sense of rhythm, cadence, texture, and vigor belies his age of just twenty-four. Primarily influenced by Charlie Parker and John Coltrane, Wiley’s sound and style is full-bodied, hearty, and robust. You can hear the history of late twentieth century jazz through Wiley’s saxophone. There is a $12-$15 sliding scale admission.
