jazzIn the Tradition Jazz Ensemble

6:00 pm, Monday, February 29

In The Tradition began in Detroit in the early 1990's when 5 members of the Neal Henry Septet formed the Christopher James/Charles Hopkins Quintet. Over the years they became In the Tradition and found their calling. Through the works of In The Tradition they “seek to educate listeners around the world about the African story, and hook the culturally disenfranchised members of the 'Diaspora' back into their heritage, laying on them [the] ensemble's refined expression of African-American classical music, in as authentic a presentation as they can muster.” (Matt Ward, Detroit Jazz Magazine, 10-16-13)
“This band's m├ętier is straight-ahead Jazz, unplugged and resplendent in all its acoustic simplicity and textural earthiness, and underpinned by rhythms inspired by all parts of the far-flung reaches of the African Diaspora”...Matt Ward, Detroit Jazz Magazine, 10-16-13.
