Jazz in America, 2020
live streamed from Bird & Beckett
Joe Warner, by dint of massive talent and tireless engagement in the art and beauty of jazz, has taken up permanent residence deep in the heart of America’s classical music.
James Wiley, a young up-and-coming bassist from Oakland, is a classically trained pianist and graduate of Oakland School for the Arts who has received dual musical training as a bassist within the Black church. His professional career of over four years has been grounded in performance with such legendary artists as The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol.
Deszon X. Claiborne sits solidly astride the traditions of jazz, driving the music from his kit.
“Deszon paints a sonic canvas connecting melody and time.” –Haroun Serang
