"Statesmen of Jazz" to return
Saturday, August 28 at Harris-Stowe

Broadcaster and jazz advocate Don Wolff sends word that another concert by the "Statesmen of Jazz" has been scheduled for Saturday, August 28 at Harris-Stowe State University.

The first event held in August 2009 featured an all-star group of jazz performers raising funds for the Wolff Jazz Institute at Harris-Stowe. This year's event will feature a similarly stellar ensemble, once again including trombonist Wycliffe Gordon (pictured), who also was part of last year's show.

Other performers will include trumpeter Joe Wilder, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, clarinetist/saxophonist Bob Wilber, drummer Jackie Williams and bassist Frank Tate, along with return appearances from St. Louis' own Jim Widner on bass and singer Denise Thimes, plus young local pianist Stephanie Trick.

More details on the show, tickets prices, and so on will be available soon from the Wolff Jazz Institute at Harris-Stowe State University; when they're released, we'll have them for you here.
