The Art of Cool Project (AOCP) is bringing its highly popular After Hours Concerts to Raleigh! After seven months of “standing-room only” jazz concerts in Durham at LabourLove Gallery, my jazz presenting nonprofit AOCP is poised to present jazz in Raleigh. It all kicks off with the reunion of The Al Strong Quintet and celebrated saxophonist, James “Saxsmo” Gates on Friday, March 2, 2012 at 9:00 PM at Flanders Gallery, 302 South West Street. I call this a reunion because we haven’t played together since last year. We make some great music together so you are in for a treat. Click here for video clips of a past performance.
On March 2nd we join forces again to perform a tribute to legendary saxophonist, Cannonball Adderley. Doors open at 9pm and the show starts at 9:30pm. Tickets are $10 in advance; $15 at the door. Tickets are available online at (http://theartofcoolproject.com/buy-tickets). Hope to see you next Friday, March 2nd.
