Tampa Jazz Club Presents Lenore Raphael Trio's Tribute to Oscar & Milt February 16, 2020 at HCC/Ybor



The Tampa Jazz Club presents a top-tier band, honoring two of the all-time jazz greats, when the LENORE RAPHAEL TRIO, featuring STEVE HOBBS and HILLIARD GREENE, plays A TRIBUTE TO OSCAR PETERSON & MILT JACKSON. The concert is at 3:00 on Sunday, February 16, 2020 in the Mainstage Theatre at HCC/Ybor City, as part of HCC’s Visual & Performing Arts Series.

LENORE RAPHAEL, a recognized Steinway Artist, has a long history of performances at major venues in New York as well as tours ranging from England to South Africa, and has recorded 10 CDs as a leader. Bill Evans and Bud Powell have been big influences, along with her lifelong favorite, Oscar Peterson. In 2008, she had the honor of performing at a memorial tribute to Peterson in his city of Toronto, and played an original that is a trademark of her shows, “Blues for O.P.”

Vibraphonist STEVE HOBBS is well-known to jazz listeners from his many recordings over the past 30 years, which have featured artists including Kenny Barron and Bob Sheppard, and have placed him in the leading rank of vibes players. In this band, he pays tribute to his favorite, Milt Jackson, with jazz classics such as “Bags’ Groove” and “Django.” And bassist HILLIARD GREENE is a rock-solid veteran of the New York scene, having been Music Director for singer Jimmy Scott for 20 years, and featured with pianists Cecil Taylor and Don Pullen.

This trio began 2020 with a 10-concert tour on the West Coast and is looking forward to their February swing through Tampa. They will also be appearing on WUSF’s All Night Jazz, with Mike Cornette, on the Saturday evening prior to their concert at HCC/Ybor City. Please join us for this all-star trio's tribute to two of the all-time greats, Oscar Peterson and Milt Jackson!
