XEN: WEDNESDAY, JULY 2ND AT 10:00 PM
We here at KUVO haven't had pianist A.J. Salas in the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio since he was a teenaged wunderkind with blazing mad Bebop and Blues chops. A few years later and A.J. is deep in an electronic Jazz and Soul Bag. He and drummer / bassist Cory Baker are Xen masters of funky heavy beats and hi tech keyboard wizardry. Wednesday Jazz Odyssey host Venus Cruz thinks you'll get into them!
A.J. Salas - keyboards & electronics; Cory Baker - drums.
