Introducing the SOUL-JAZZ Big Band: August 25 at Tala Vera

August 3, 2011 By Russell Scarbrough

Russell Scarbrough’s SOUL-JAZZ Big Band will be appearing at Tala Vera in downtown Rochester on Thursday, August 25 at 8:00. This new 12-piece ensemble performs the music found in the “sweet spot” where jazz, funk, gospel, and the blues intersect, in a fat, horn-rich setting. The SOUL-JAZZ Big Band will be performing new arrangements of the music of Lee Morgan, Cannonball Adderly, Herbie Hancock, and many more. The band consists of some of Rochester’s top musicians, including Bill Tiberio, Doug Stone, Ron d’Angelo, Nikola Tomic, and others.

Sets at 8:00pm and 9:30pm, $5 cover charge.

Tala Vera (California-Mexican Cuisine) is located just inside the inner loop at 155 State St. in downtown Rochester.
