Jazz Tuesdays with Larry Barris and Jim Alfredson
July 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Jazz Tuesdays is a weekly event featuring great jazz musicians from all over the state of Michigan. Each week brings in a different guest artist and a new experience.
For this week’s show we welcome back Detroit guitarist Larry Barris. Larry began working professionally by the age of 13, and it wasn’t long before he found himself performing with a “who’s who” of Detroit Jazz heavy weights, including Marcus Belgrave,Teddy Harris, Donald Walden, Dennis Rowland, Wendell Harrison, Bobby Wright and Rod Lumpkin. He also performed with national artists as they passed through Detroit, such as George Benson, Mary Wilson &The Supremes, Ben E. King, The 5th Dimension, George Burns, Joan Rivers, Earl Klugh, Joe Sample, Richard ‘Groove’ Holmes, Jack McDuff, Dave McMurray, Fabian, Little Anthony & the Imperials, David Ruffin, and Eddie Kendricks. These days Larry commits much of his time to being one third of the celebrated, Michigan-based, jazz organ trio organissimo.
Larry will be joined by organissimo bandmate and Hammond organ wizard Jim Alfredson, with Jazz Tuesdays host Jeff Shoup on drums. The host band plays the first set at 7pm, followed by a jam session during which jazz musicians are welcome to sit-in.
Jazz Tuesdays is generously sponsored by Gregg Hill Publishing, the East Lansing Summer Solstice Jazz Festival, and INDe Drum Lab.
