A Tribute to Black History Month

Thursday February 15, 2018 / 6:00 pm

Deborah Davis and Segue to Jazz will be joined once again by Stefan Keyes (Ottawa anchor CTV News /weekend), Jazz great Michael C. Hanna, Jamaal Jackson Rogers, (Ottawa English Poet Laureate) and former world tap dancing champion, the dynamic Darin Kyle for their annual tribute to Black History Month.

From its African and Gospel roots to modern day expressions including the arrival and influence of Jazz in Canada … The Gift of Jazz is “A Tribute to Black History Month / A CELEBRATION of the profound impact of Black history and culture on music!”

From the cotton fields to the early roots of Gospel music to the more contemporary jazz sounds of today, this musical history celebrates the courage, determination, grace and unrelenting spirit of men and women who overcame incredible challenges and reflects their history and contributions to the world of Jazz.
