Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul
It may be a little gray and blustery out there, but inside Music Hall there is warmth enough for all. We’re humming some sweet tunes as we get ready to welcome the great jazz saxophonist Benny Golson into the Jazz Café on the 2nd & 3rd. His journey as an artist has placed him on global stages with the great names in jazz, and we couldn’t be more excited to share him with Detroiters.
South Asian culture will take the inside temps to the tropical ranges. Take a peek in on the 4th to broaden your cultural horizons on the mad popularity of Bollywood-style dance. Kids and families have a fun afternoon in store on the 12th for Lights! Camera! Math! - and sshhh don’t let them know, but kids might just pick up a few new math skills in the process. The main stage run of Je’Caryous Johnson’s latest work lasts almost a full week and keeps us strongly connected to our urban roots. And as usual, the Jazz Café is a warm and buzzy hotspot for our deep hometown talent bench. If you haven’t already done so, check out the Sunday night jam sessions, which go right to the heart of what music is all about by bringing people together from every corner to share and learn and make beautiful sounds.
As always, "I'll see you downtown"
