2014 Trinity Jazz Festival, Houston

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

I would like to personally  invite you to attend the Trinity Jazz Festival this Friday and Saturday in midtown at Trinity Church, 1015 Holman at Main.  The festival features world class jazz in a beautiful, serene setting.  There will also be free master classes on Friday and Saturday.

Friday’s headliner is Houston native and HSPVA graduate, Saxophonist  Everette Harp, Everette has recorded on Blue Note and Capitol records and has played and toured with the likes of George Duke;  Anita Baker; David Sanborn; Marcus Miller; and Diane Reeves.

Saturday night’s headliner is Guitarist  Eric Essix from Birmingham.  If you listen to Watercolors on Sirius XM or Donna Franklin on KTSU, you have probably heard his latest single ‘ Foot Soldiers’ from his 20th CD ‘Evolutions’.

Invite your friends and enjoy the weekend at Trinity. Thank you in advance for your support. I look forward to seeing you this weekend!
