Kissing Cousins Tour1The Kissing Cousins Tour: A Blues and Jazz Extravaganza! Sept 4th, 2016, 2 30-6 30pm

Both Blues and Jazz have had profound effects on American Pop Culture and the world. These two genres have similar beginnings that took different routs and yet managed to still intertwine with each other. These musical “cousins” have stood the test of time, overcome many difficult circumstances, stayed true to themselves and their fans, and have had a major influence on most of the popular music of today.

Statements that have been made about these wonderful genres:

  • “It’s just something that everyone can relate to”
  • “Blues and jazz, a perfect dose of sound and soul!”
  • “Blues and jazz just seem to resonate with everybody, no matter what the age group.”
  • “This music will never go out style”

This concert is going to be a wonderful tribute to these two styles of music with fantastic local artists paying homage to these “musical relatives”…

Tulsa Jazz.Com’s Jazz Legend Spotlight: Lena Horne

lena-horne-photo

Listening to Lena  is such an incredible way to start the day, she has an almost magical way of transcending time and transporting you away to a “happy place” leaving your heart full and a big kool-aid grin on your face…be careful not to be late for work😉.

She not only had a wonderful voice but Lena was considered to be one of the most beautiful women  in music with her timeless looks lasting well into her later years. The wonder of music is that even after the person who created it is gone it continues to touch and impact the live of listeners as though you were hearing it for the first time. Thank you Lena for sharing your incredible life and gift with us, the world is better because you were here and for that we are eternally grateful.

Tulsa Jazz.Com’s Jazz Legend Spotlight: Walter ‘Foots’ Thomas

Walter “Foots” Thomas
February 10, 1907 – August 26, 1981

Reed specialist, arranger and sometimes bandleader Walter “Foots” Thomas retired from fulltime playing in 1948, then became a professional manager whose specialty could easily have been coaching players on the art of amassing discographies capable of encircling Atlantic City’s Trump Plaza. Thomas hailed from Muskogee, Oklahoma, a point of interest in connection with country and western star Merle Haggard’s famous lyric, “We don’t smoke marijuana in Muskogee.” Nonetheless, one of Muskogee native Thomas’ most famous sideman affiliations was with Cab Calloway of “Reefer Man” fame. This artist is the brother of Joe Thomas, also a noted classic jazz reed player who eventually took over the Jimmie Lunceford band. Older than his brother by a year, Walter Thomas began playing with local bands as a college student. He moved to New York City in 1927 and began working with the famed Jelly Roll Morton less than a year later.

Thomas joined the The Missourians in 1929 after short stints in bands led by Luis Russell and Joe Steele. The Missourians provided the contact with Calloway, who eventually took over that band. With and without Calloway, Thomas was involved with this outfit through 1943. Calloway sidemen were said to have received some of the best salaries in jazz, perhaps one reason for loyalty. Thomas finally began playing with Don Redman by 1944, then led his own band for a bit less than half a decade before moving into management. Firmly associated with swing styles, Thomas made one of his finest recordings near the end of his playing career when combined with the rootsy yet always forward-looking tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins. Thomas gave saxophone lessons to the late Jackie McLean, a brilliant bebop and modern jazz alto saxophonist. ~ Eugene Chadbourne, Rovi
