Since its inception in January 2014, JazzSoiree has featured classic jazz music performed by the area’s top artists, and various wines selected by the host. All presented with state-of-the-art sound and lighting in a beautiful, historic building.
In keeping with the tradition of adding a new element each season, for 2017, Gray Mayfield joins the Travis Shaw Trio to present new arrangements of jazz classics and standards. We are still at the Jessye Norman School, but in the newly renovated Ann & Ellis Johnson Gallery.
“This is not a typical jazz concert or hang. The move from the Knox Auditorium to the Ann & Ellis Johnson Gallery represents more than an aesthetic shift. The whole vibe has lifted as well. The music is still being performed with reverence and respect, but with a level of intensity that it deserves. To present anything less would be uncivilized.” -k. Gordon, Garden City Jazz
