Ken Walker Sextet | Feb 23

The Ken Walker Sextet is a little like the full moon, except the KWS is more dependable and swings harder. The full moon arcs gracefully across the sky. It's nice, but does it make you snap your fingers? Walker and his band evoke (but don't demand) that response.

Featuring: Ken Walker-bass, Dave Corbus-guitar, Al Hood-trumpet, Paul Romaine-drums, Jeff Jenkins-piano, and Peter Sommer-sax

The alchemy of a darkened theatre, a room full of peers, and a larger-than-life story transforms a film into something much greater than the sum of its parts. It is an art form and a community building experience. It is entertainment and a reflection of our collective humanity. It is a magic that cannot be replicated on-demand or on ever-shrinking screens. When you see someone’s identity and values revealed on the big screen, their experience – their existence – is validated.

There is perhaps no greater example of urban decline in the United States, with its attendant racist policies, than the City of Detroit. As a native of that once thriving metropolis, playwright Dominique Morisseau has her hand on the pulse of the notorious, libertine 12th Street neighborhood on the eve of the largest civil disturbance of twentieth century America.

If it's February, it means it's once again time for  host Doug Crane's annual "Jazz Goes to the Movies" feature on The Night Beat Jazz Beyond Category. In past years Doug focused on different film genres, composers, locales, Oscar winners etc. He's tossing all of that out for 2018. This year it's film music without category.

It's week two of "Jazz Goes to the Movies" with music from Spartacus, Cars, Valley of the Dolls, The Young Girls of Rochefort and more.  We'll also note the birthdays of Rob McConnell and Maceo Parker plus toss in a couple of tunes for Valentine's Day.
