On Friday, November 28th G & J Productions presents their monthly jazz series, with jazz guitar virtuoso Russell Malone. One of the most commanding and versatile guitarists performing, Malone can move from blues to gospel to pop to R&B and jazz without hesitation, a rare facility that has prompted some of the highest profile artists in the world to call upon him, including Diana Krall, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Natalie Cole, David Sanborn, Shirley Horn, Christina Aguilera, Harry Connick, Jr, Ron Carter, and Sonny Rollins.
Malone played with jazz organist Jimmy Smith from 1988—1990. He then joined the Harry Connick Jr. Big Band from 1989-1994. In 1995, Malone became part of the Diana Krall trio, participating in three Grammy-nominated albums, the final one in 1999, “When I Look In Your Eyes,” winning Best Vocal Jazz Performance. In addition to touring regularly as leader of The Russell Malone Quartet, he also tours frequently with Ron Carter as part of the Golden Striker Trio, Bobby Hutcherson, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Hank Jones (in celebration of his 90th birthday).
Two shows, 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm; cover charge is $20. For reservations phone 800-956-1554 or purchase tickets on line at http://www.gjpservices.com/Jazz—Roscoe-s-Room.html
