Reuben Jackson will host a listening party on July 20 featuring local saxophonist, educator, composer, Brian McCarthy. You’re invited to join us in Studio One at 6:00p.m. to hear and discuss material from his riveting new release The Better Angels Of Our Nature.
Looking back on one of the most divisive moments in American history, saxophonist Brian McCarthy finds the roots of jazz in Civil War-era songs and spirit. On his new album, The Better Angels Of Our Nature, McCarthy pairs insightful new arrangements of vintage wartime folk songs with vibrant new compositions for his skilled Nonet to explore the clashing inspirations and enduring influence of the war that turned brother against brother in a battle over the soul of America.
Be a part of our discussion on July 20! Doors open at 6:00p.m. and the event starts at 6:30p.m. This is an all-ages show and tickets are free but reservations are required. Reserve your seats here. Cash bar and snacks will be available from The Skinny Pancake.
