Enjoy an explosive night of contemporary jazz with the dynamic trombonist Jeff Bradshaw, saxophonist Elan Trotman, jazzy flutist Althea Renee, sassy saxophonist Jeanette Harris and classy pianist Kayla Waters. Born in North Philadelphia, Jeff Bradshaw is known as a soul-jazz and hip-hop/funk innovator, so it was only right that this trombone virtuoso found a home at Hidden Beach Recordings. Coming up in and out of the Philadelphia Soul Movement, he had performed along some of the music industry’s greats – Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Pattie LaBelle, to name a few. Saxophonist Elan Trotman, has quickly become one of jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers as he continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, teacher and recording artist. Trotman’s playing, though inspired by Grover Washington, Jr., Kirk Whalum and Najee, displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone. Althea René. This unparalleled artist, born December 25th in Detroit, Michigan, began her musical career at age four as a classical flautist. She studied classical music while attending Howard University in Washington D.C. and later she gained further musical inspiration from the accomplishments of Yusef Lateef, Ian Anderson, and Dave Valentine. She has since developed her own creative style. Jeanette Harris is the scintillating saxtress of smooth jazz. This lady understands that energetic and captivating performances matched with uplifting and inspiring vibrations in the music are the solid platinum recipe for success. Classically trained in both sax and piano, a graduate of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music, and the saxophonist for the late, great Teena Marie’s final year of touring, Jeanette has weathered the fiercest challenges to bring the world her own brand of soulful healing vibes. Pianist, singer, and composer Kayla Waters is an ebullient, classically trained, crossover jazz performer. Born into a musical family, Waters was introduced to music via her father, acclaimed smooth jazz saxophonist Kim Waters. From the age of six, she studied classical piano and eventually earned her Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from Howard University. As a performer, she made her debut playing on several of her father's albums before launching her own career. The Gala features a cash bar, delectable full-course dinner and a fantastic evening of live entertainment featuring an amazing line-up of jazz performers, all in a classy setting.
