Join us for the fifth season of this exciting and popular concert series featuring hot jazz performances under the artistic direction of internationally renowned band leader Noel Freidline.
The saxophone has long been a mainstay of the jazz idiom. No other genre of music has celebrated its unique sound quite like the great American art form of jazz. We’re proud to present five titans in the world of jazz saxophone: Juan Rollan (Billy Cobham, Al Green), Adrian Crutchfield (Prince, CeeLo Green), Sam Skelton (Elton John, Francine Reed), Tim Gordon (The Four Tops and Temptations), and Ziad Rabie (Nnenna Freelon, James Brown). The collective energy these astounding instrumentalists brings to the stage may just light the CMA on fire.
