Chris O'Leary Band Returns to Tour Statewide in January

A six piece high-energy horn-driven
 blues roots band blending sounds of 
Chicago, Memphis & New Orleans.

You've heard the 'buzz' about this band from 
their  previous swings through the state or you 
were part of creating the buzz because you saw them.

Every so often you’re lucky enough to see a band and realize 
that everything is just right. The right personalities, the right
 arrangements, the right instruments, the right attitude… 
everything just comes together perfectly. “Tight” doesn’t 
describe it. Bands that rehearse and work hard and can 
stop and start on a dime are tight. Bands that know each 
other like the back of their hands are something special. 
- Review by Eric Gleason.

Ages Apart and
Musically Together
Friday, January 12, 2018
John S. and James L. 
Knight Concert Hall
at the
Adrienne Arsht Center
for the Performing Arts
1300 Biscayne Boulevard
Miami, FL 33132

Generations:

The Ramsey Lewis Quartet)
TICKETS

Showcasing the extraordinary talents of two generations spanning six decades, the reigning king of jazz piano, Ramsey Lewis and his quintet, will be joined by 14-year-old jazz piano prodigy Joey Alexander and his trio.

An iconic leader in the contemporary jazz movement for over 50 years, Ramsey Lewis has had a prolific career recording over 80 albums since his debut release, Ramsey Lewis & His Gentlemen of Jazz, back in 1956. He successfully crossed over to the pop and R&B charts with hits such as “The ‘In’ Crowd,” “Wade in the Water,” and “Hang on Sloopy,” with his unforgettable trademark sound – funky, soulful jazz.

Joey Alexander is one of the fastest and youngest rising stars in jazz today. At just 14 years old, he has already earned two GRAMMY Award nominations for his debut album, My Favorite Things. He is a master of improvisation with a deft touch and adventurous spirit that belies his age. “Joey is a little genius…playing with emotional depth like that of above a young adult.”  - Wynton Marsalis
