Joe Locke w/ the SNJO: POP! ROCK! Soul!

Award-winning vibraphonist Joe Locke and vocalist extraordinaire Kenny Washington join the SNJO once again to play a fabulous selection of tracks taken from the modern American songbook – a rich and weighty tome running to several volumes of wonderfully popular songs.

Singer-songwriters such as Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel and Bill Withers brought heartfelt soul music to their work, while artists and performers like Earth, Wind & Fire, Led Zeppelin, Heart and Steely Dan showered their enduring recordings with jazz, funk, orchestral and eclectic ornamentation. The platinum success of their gold-plated careers is in no small part due to the availability of jazz music and jazz masters as a fountainhead of knowledge, artistry and intellect.

At all times, the health and safety of our musicians, audience, technicians, and venue staff are our top priority as we navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Therefore, in line with Government Policy, we have cancelled or postponed all planned SNJO & TSYJO concerts that were scheduled before the autumn. This will ensure the wellbeing of all concerned – musicians, audience, technicians and all venue staff and gives clarity for uncertainty for our audience.

We hope that these uncertain times improve as soon as possible and that you all stay safe and well. In the meantime, we will continue planning and look forward to some spectacular and uplifting concerts in the Autumn, starting hopefully with our postponed SNJO concerts with Joe Locke and Kenny Washington: Pop! Rock! Soul!
