Benny Golson - this week

Apr 18, 2014

On Thursday, April 24 when NEA Jazz Master, saxophonist, and composer Benny Golson appears at the Mount Vernon Country Club. The 85 years young musician has made major contributions to jazz over the years including the compositions, Killer Joe, I Remember Clifford, Along Came Betty, Stablemates, Whisper Not and Blues March.

It’s Springtime and that special time of year again --- Join Rolando Garcia this Saturday night from 6 to 8pm for the annual R&B Jukebox Gospel Show.  

It’s time for the annual R&B Jukebox Gospel Show!

R&B is deeply rooted in music from the gospel and spiritual traditions.  And every year we celebrate that sound on the R&B Jukebox Gospel show.

It’s familiar R&B artists like BB King, Sam Cooke, and Solomon Burke, with some of gospel music’s greatest artists.  And it all sounds like Rhythm and Blues!
